How do Magnetic Filters Work?
While a large number of configurations exist, most magnetic filters work by producing a magnetic field or loading zones that collect magnetic iron and steel particles. Magnets are geometrically arranged to form a magnetic field having a nonuniform flux density (flux density is also referred to as magnetic strength).
Particles are most effectively separated when there is a strong magnetic gradient (rate of change of field strength with distance) from low to high. In other words, the higher the magnetic gradient, the stronger the attracting magnetic force acting on particles drawing them toward the loading zones. The strength of the magnetic gradient is determined by flux density, spacing and alignment of the magnets.
Various types of magnets can be used in these filters (see sidebar). Magnets used in some filters can have flux density (magnetic strength) as high as 28,000 gauss. Compare this level to an ordinary refrigerator magnet of between 60 and 80 gauss. The higher the flux density, the higher the potential magnetic gradient and magnetic force acting on nearby iron and steel particles.
While there are many configurations of magnetic filters and separators used in process industries, the following are general classifications for common magnetic products used in lubricating oil and hydraulic fluid applications.
