Factors to consider
When choosing the right type and grade of magnet there are certain factors to consider.
Standard magnets of different sizes and grades. Alnico, Ferrite, Neodymium and Samarium Cobalt.
The steel cup that surrounds these Neodymium magnets protects the magnet and helps to increase its force.
The outer layer of rubber helps to ensure a very high level of friction. Rubber-coated magnetic systems are only magnetic on one side.
Ferrite systems are cheaper than Neodymium systems and can cope with higher working temperatures. In addition, Ferrite magnets do not corrode.
Encasing Neodymium or Ferrite magnets in stainless steel provides hard-wearing protection. These magnets are often used to trap metal during filtering and sorting.
Soft and thin rubber magnets such as those used for learner driver plates or the magnetic strip on a shower door. Available in a variety of colours and with double-sided tape.
Our very popular range of lifting magnets. Lifting capacity from 100 kg up to 2,000 kg with a triple safety factor.
In one sweep, as easy to use as a normal brush, you can pick up all magnetic material and release it where you want.
