Designed to remove ferrous contamination and reduce the traditional magnet cleaning cycle to a simple push/pull operation is the new tramp iron grate in housings. Reportedly incorporating powerful Erium ceramic or Xtreme rare-earth magnet materials, the single-skinned tube design is said to remove the iron with a stainless-steel split ring sandwiched between two floating wipers; as the individual banks cycle tramp iron, it is stripped from the tubes outside of the product zone and is then discharged through a small chute at the front of the housing.
