Magnetic inspection rods

Neodymium magnet rod integrated into the pipe

A magnetic inspection rod allows you to investigate whether the product is contaminated with ferromagnetic (Fe) particles. The inspection rods attract Fe particles down to 30 µm. These very small Fe particles cannot be detected by a metal detector.

A Goudsmit inspection rod is a strong Neodymium (Neoflux®) magnet rod, built into a stainless steel tube (extractor) with a handle attached to the rod. Captured Fe particles can be easily removed by pulling the magnet rod out of the outer tube (away from the product), causing the Fe particles to fall off the tube.
