Magnets South Africa

Chute Magnet

BJ Magnets designs and manufactures a serie of high-strength chute magnets also called Spout Magnets, suitable for a range of applications including but not limited to the protection of grinders, mills, extruders, etc…

BJ Magnets’ Chute magnets or Spout Magnets  have robust magnetic plates that are placed behind a stainless steel (extractor) plate. The magnets attract the ferrous particles, which are then held securely against the extractor plate.

BJ Magnets’ Chute Magnets cleaning is performed with the use of an extractor plate (for quick cleaning), by swinging the extractor plate away from the magnet. The ferrous particles fall off the extractor plate as soon as they are moved far enough away from the magnet.

BJ Magnets’ Chute magnets are easy to install and can deliver satisfactory results – With a deep field capability of magnetic flux in the intensive coercive force of the magnetic plate, the entire equipment gains far superior control on foreign ferrous metal debris; thus increasing the protection of  manufactured products.

We are ISO 9001: 2015

Bullet Magnet


Chute Magnets or Spout Magnets consist of a hinged plate attached to a housing. This allows for simple installation by removing a section of the spouting and replacing with the angled Spout Magnet. This is especially helpful when installing this type of separator in flat or a round spout.


A Chute Magnet or Spout Magnet can be provided with a round inlet and outlet openings of which transition to the rectangular flows through areas where the plate magnet is attached. The Plate magnet is hinged, latched, and gasketed for easy access and cleaning. The  Chute Magnet or Spout Magnet is engineered to remove fine to large ferrous contaminants from high volume gravity fed product streams.


Ideal for free flowing powders and granules. Very useful for food ingredients and plastics industries.  

Manufactured to food industry required grade standard, which is 304 or 316 stainless steel; with high effectiveness and consistent performance.

Bespoke manufactured to your specific dimensions, hence in correspondence to your expected solution needs.

The Magnet strength standard is up to 10,000 gauss with an easy-cleaning plate.


High intensity Rare Earth magnets, which comes in nickel coated. Also available in  ceramic either, if necessary nevethless.

Manufactured to fit various pipelines ranging from 50mm – 350mm diameter, our Chute  or Spout Magnet  comes with flanges to suit square and round pipelines, for installation.

Hygienic sealed with quick release door; our magnet is  absolutely easy to clean.

Applications are not limited only to: Flour, Spices, Grains, Maize, Salt, Animal feeds, Pellets (Feed or plastic), Sugar or Coffee.

BJ Magnets

Chute magnets are mainly used for powder streams in free-fall or chute applications as a simple solution for removal of ferrous debris contamination  – The angle of the chute which does not exceed 45° from the vertical is ideally suited for products that would bridge or choke in a magnetic tube type separator. Ferrous contaminants are easily removed from products that are grains related.

Our angled Chute or Spout Magnets are engineered to remove fine to large ferrous debris contaminants from high volume, gravity fed product streams. They are ideally suited for products that would bridge or choke in a magnetic tube type separator. Ferrous debris contaminants are easily removed from products that are grains related type.

For reasons of safety, the operator must handle the chute magnet with two hands to avoid possible injury. Neverthless, the magnetic equipment is secured in the outermost cleaning position, after which the operator has both hands free for cleaning.

BJ Magnets is ISO 9001:2015 certified company by SABS for Quality Management System. All our Magnetic Separator Equipment are designed, manufactured and supplied under observation of the principles of the HACCP International Food Safety Standard 0909MAGSEP 1-2010. Moreso, to the bargain of their effectiveness, the internal and external aspect of the magnetic equipment is produced according to the food health and safety standard in terms of the building materials; which is austenitic stainless steel of grade 304 or 316. Thereof upon completion, a certificate of Factory Acceptance Test (FAT) which is valid for 12 months is issued; in which case the equipment shall not be subjected to the anual validation.
