Finally, there is an innovative way to solve paint defects caused by weld balls and other ferrous metal without manually sanding and repainting units. With a huge profitability in labor cost savings for you, the FerrX 5000 removes virtually all ferrite particles that pass through it. By strategically placing one or more units into the phosphate pre-treat system, a significant amount of ferrous debris can be removed so that it doesn't ruin paint finishes.

The patented FerrX 5000 is specifically designed to remove ferrous materials from the effluents used to clean and rinse the surface of automotive and other welded body units, prior to the paint application. By positioning powerful rare earth magnets in the effluent stream, FerrX 5000 suspends and traps ferrous particles. The self-cleaning cycle automatically purges these particles into a waste stream. No disassembly or daily attendance by plant personnel is needed.

Field trials prove that the FerrX 5000 can remove more than 75 to 150 pounds of ferrous material per week from the pre-clean phosphate tanks. A single unit installed in the phosphate pre-clean process has been proven to eliminate more than 50 percent of the metal particulate defects in a cured electrodeposition surface.
