Hirst Magnetic Instruments Ltd. design and manufacture demagnetising systems capable of reducing the existing flux in magnets, ferrous material, magnet housings and equipment.
Hirst’s range of easy to use demagnetising systems offers flexibility and control at both high and low production rates. They can be supplied for manual operation, with suitable PLC interface controls or integrated with other Hirst products.
Models are available in each range suitable for demagnetising permanent magnets or ferrous material.
Demagnetising materials, (or degaussing or deperming as it is also known), plays a vital role in the flow of work of many industrial processes around the world.
Components may become magnetised as part of the production process or are supplied magnetised (intentionally or otherwise). They often need to be demagnetised to avoid production problems, to make handling easier or to recycle components.
It is therefore necessary to remove, or greatly reduce this unwanted magnetism.
