New Product: MPI’s Hi-G Drawer Magnet Units


Magnetic Products, Inc. (MPI), is excited to announce its new line of Hi-G Drawer Magnet Units (DMUs)! The Hi-G is a line of specially selected products that have been enhanced to provide:

Hi-Gauss- Superior magnet material with superior design in magnet circuitry

Hi-Grab- Powerful reach-out to grab tramp metal out of any product flow

Hi-Gravity- Superior attraction to hold onto tramp metals

Hi-Guard- Protection for process equipment to keep lines running optimally

MPI’s DMU Hi-G self-cleaning drawer magnets are ideally suited to capture small ferrous contaminants, such as wire, metal shavings and metal wear. These drawer magnets have a variety of applications and function exceptionally well in removing tramp metal from dry powder or granular free-flowing product streams in gravity-fed vertical chutes.

Several Hi-G improvements have been made to the DMU line from advanced computer modelled magnetic tube circuitry, to the reinforced loop style grounding strap to eliminate accidental disconnect from the unit. The DMU Hi-G features staggered rows of 50 MGO magnetic tubes to prevent bridging or choking of the product stream. This also maximizes magnetic filtration as the product flows through the housing. The DMU Hi-G line also features enhanced tube stripper seals for easy and thorough tramp metal removal and cleaning from magnet material.

The DMU Hi-G also benefits from a unique captured FDA approved gasket, designed to prevent product escaping from the flow. The captured design means that the gasket will not become damaged during normal operation, increasing the life span and ensuring the gasket does not, in itself, become a source of contamination.

MPI’s DMU Hi-G line comes in quick-clean and self-cleaning models. Self-cleaning models are pneumatically operated. There are several standard options and a variety of customizable features to build the perfect DMU Hi-G for any application. For more information on the DMU Hi-G visit www.mpimagnet.com.

 About Magnetic Products, Inc.:

Magnetic Products Inc. (MPI), is based in southeastern Michigan. It is a worldwide provider of both magnetic and non-magnetic material handling solutions. MPI leads the industry by continuously engineering inventive magnetic equipment and advancing customer education, though significant investments in research and development and proactive product training.

Sturtevant- Proven Size Reduction & Classifying Technology

represented by Bulk Handling Equipment


Size Reduction and Air Classification:
Engineered Material Processing Equipment
Time-Tested – Proven Success

Sturtevant Inc. is a family-owned manufacturer of material processing equipment including crushers, fine grinders and air classifiers.  Since 1883, the company has provided processing solutions to the chemical, pharmaceutical, food and mineral powder processing industries worldwide.



Interchangeable Rotors for Trona and Sodium Bicarbonate

Specifically designed for the rigors of dry sorbent processing, the NEW Sturtevant Simpactor 6C- 30 FGD is easily convertible for the unique properties of Trona and Sodium Bicarbonate.

Dry Sorbent Injection Systems have proven to be highly effective at reducing SOx emissions in small to mid-size coal fired power plants in comparison to wet systems. Dry Systems equipped with a pulverizer, such as the Sturtevant Simpactor 6C-30 FGD, typically cost less to operate because they use up to 30% less sorbent; benefitting from a corresponding reduction in disposal costs. The process is also preferable to existing wet systems due to the elimination of environmentally hazardous and costly settling ponds..

air classifier


Air Classifiers

Sturtevant air classifiers balance the physical principles of centrifugal force, drag force and gravity to generate a high-precision method of classifying particles according to size or density. For dry materials of 100 mesh and smaller, air classification provides the most effective and efficient means for separating a product from a feed stream for dedusting, or for increasing productivity when used in conjunction with grinding equipment. All three Sturtevant air classifiers offer durable construction, as well as time- and energy-saving advantages.

read more about Sturtevant Air Classifiers




Micronizer® Jet Mill

The Sturtevant Micronizer® is a jet mill (fluid energy mill) employing compressed air or gas to produce particles less than one micron. Inside the Micronizer, precisely aligned jets create a vortex. Material is fed into this vortex along an engineered tangent circle and accelerates.

High-speed rotation subjects the material to particle-on-particle impact, creating increasingly smaller fines. While centrifugal force drives large particles toward the perimeter, fine particles move toward the center where they exit through the vortex finder

read more about Sturtevant Micronizer Jet Mills



Powderizer® Air Classifying Mill

The Sturtevant Powderizer® is a “classifying impact mill” capable of reducing powders down to 5 microns. It is fast becoming the workhorse in particle size reduction applications due to its combination of impact milling and air classification technologies in a single unit. The Powderizer’s flexibility of operation allows it to easily process a multitude of product categories requiring efficient and economical particle size reduction for a broad range of industries including chemical, food, minerals and others.
