Releases Video Highlighting Cleaning Design of RotoDrawer Magnetic Separator Thu, 24 Jul 2014 17:19:10 EDT http://www.seedtoday.com/articles/Industrial_Magnetics_Inc__Releases_Video_Highlighting_Cleaning_Design_of_RotoDrawer_Magnetic_Separator-142559.html http://www.seedtoday.com/articles/Industrial_Magnetics_Inc__Releases_Video_Highlighting_Cleaning_Design_of_RotoDrawer_Magnetic_Separator-142559.html Industrial Magnetics, Inc. has just released a demonstration video of their SimpleClean™ RotoDrawer™ magnetic housing, which highlights its improved ergonomics and innovative cleaning design. Watch the equipment operator gain easy access to the magnets to perform routine removal of collected metal, thereby preventing re-contamination of the product stream. The ergonomic design of the magnetic drawer allows it to weightlessly glide open on a fixed track and smoothly rotate into vertical orientation. Once in cleaning position, the indexing magnetic tube assembly brings each tube to the forward position, allowing the operator to wipe collected metal downward into a catch bin.
