HOW TO REMOVE KEEPERS FROM MAGNETS
WHAT ARE MAGNET KEEPERS?
A magnet keeper, is a bar made from iron or steel. They are placed across the poles of a permanent magnet to help preserve the strength and close the magnetic circuit, which stops any external metal being attracted to the magnet. We use them as a safety function for when we send out our magnets in the post.
Due to keepers being used to close a circuit they can be fiddly to remove, with this in mind we have created some videos to show you how to remove them safely…
Here demonstrates how to remove a keeper from a smaller sized magnet. The magnets used in this demonstration are our 25 x 10 x 3mm thick N42 Neodymium Magnet.
Next we have demonstrated how to remove a keeper from a larger magnet. The magnet used was one of our Ferrite Recovery Magnets, these are commonly used in magnet fishing.
Finally we wanted to demonstrate how to remove a keeper from one of our stronger magnets. This magnet again is one of our Ferrite Recovery Magnets, but this one has a 130kg pull!
