Process Protection – High Performance Magnetic Separation & Detection Systems
With 100 years of experience in the design and manufacture of high-performance magnetic systems, Eclipse Magnetics supply critical equipment to some of the leading names in the most demanding industries.
Eclipse Magnetics technology is widely used at leading worldwide companies and in major development projects, all requiring a guarantee of equipment performance.
Leading the way for product quality, performance and service, Eclipse manufactures the full range of options for every stage of production, from simple manually cleaned magnetic separation units to fully automated PLC controlled systems. Eclipse’s high-quality, high-power magnetic separators, metal detectors and vibratory sieves are suitable for most applications, including bulk, grain, dry powders, damp powders, liquids and syrups.
We are fully conversant with all major industry standards such as FSA, FDA and IFS, plus institutes such as BRC and GFSI. Many of our magnetic separation products have full ATEX certification.
Eclipse Magnetics‟s high intensity magnetic Easy Clean housed grids offer unsurpassed levels of contamination removal. These units are so effective they can even remove sub-micron ferrous and para-magnetic contamination from the most demanding and arduous of process environments.
The unit comprises of two high intensity Easy Clean magnetic grids with the rods of each grid having an offset design for maximum efficiency. The grids are secured into the housing by tri-cone locking nuts, which ensure even pressure is generated around the food grade seal.
Where cleaning time is to be kept to a minimum consider the Auto-Shuttle unit, which requires no intervention.
Common installation locations are raw material inlet points or post silo etc. It is common to have numerous units installed throughout a processing facility to ensure contamination is removed at source of generation.
All powders and granular type materials that are dry can be processed through the unit. Electrical safety interlocks can be fitted to each grid row to stop the process should they be accidentally opened, see Fig A.
The Eclipse high intensity liquid filter magnetic separator has been designed to operate in pressurised transfer lines to provide protection against ferrous and paramagnetic contamination.
The unit comprises of a vessel, magnetic lid assembly and band clamp, which secures the unit together. The filter is available in two versions, single wall & double wall, jacketed for heated pipelines.
The filter can be utilised in any line that processes liquids at all viscosity levels and can be installed at any angle from vertical to horizontal. A common installation location is tanker loading and discharge to inspect outgoing & incoming materials.
The filter can be supplied to suit various processing volumes, pressures, temperatures and specifications.
Our high intensity magnetic Rota-Grid separator has been designed specifically to process difficult products that are prone to bridging and/or caking.
The unit contains a centrally mounted magnetic ‘rota’ assembly: numerous ‘easy clean’ magnetic rods are arranged in a ‘wheel’ around and parallel to the axis of rotation. The number of rods used depends on the inlet and outlet size.
The assembly rotates, gently agitating the product being processed. It is this agitation that prevents blockages occurring. All dry and semi-dry powders and granular type materials, such as starch etc., can be processed through the unit. The Rota-Grid can be supplied to the most stringent of standards, such as those required in the pharmaceutical industry.
The Eclipse Pneumag high intensity magnetic separator has been designed to operate in pneumatic conveying lines to provide protection against ferrous and paramagnetic contamination.
The unit comprises of a single double row high intensity magnetic cartridge, which is secured into its housing via quick release toggle clamps. It is these toggle clamps that ensures even pressure is generated around the unique silicon based metal detectable seal.
The Pneumag can be incorporated into any form of pneumatic conveying line from lean to dense phase and can be installed at any angle from vertical to horizontal. A common installation Location is tanker discharge to inspect incoming materials.
All powders and granular type materials that are dry can be processed through the unit. Pneumag can operate in line pressures of +/- 1 Bar, units are available up to +/- 5 Bar on request, with a maximum processing line speed of 35m/sec.
A lockable tamper proof cover plate is provided to ensure only Authorised personnel have access to the unit.
The Eclipse Auto-Shuttle magnetic separator enables screening of processed products 24hrs a day seven days a week without the need for manual intervention. The system can even carry out a full clean without the need to stop the process enabling continuous production.
The unit is supplied with a pre programmed PLC that can either work independently or connected to the central control rooms system for remote activation or monitoring etc.
There are reed switches fitted to each end of the separator tubes to indicate the position of each magnetic core. The full system remains air tight throughout normal operation making it suitable for environments where ATEX equipment is required.
