Cylinder Magnets

Specifications for cylinder magnets are given according to their height and diameter. These types of magnets have straight parallel sides, are circular in cross section and house a hollow centre or central void for sliding and lodging onto a spindle or shaft. The shape of a magnet determines how the magnetic field lines are arranged around the magnet as well as the pull strength. These cylinder magnets are particularly useful in the field of nuclear magnetic imaging.

Cylinder magnets are built into grates, grills and filtration devices to remove unwanted ferrous and other contaminants from dry particle products, liquids and slurries. This method removes hazards from food and beverage chains to conform to health and safety protocols and to protect processing equipment from damage as a result of furtive metal fragments.
