cylinder magnetsCylinder magnets have straight parallel sides and a circular cross section. Cylinder magnets are measured according to the Diameter (D) x Height (H). For cylinders, the Diameter is always less than (or equal to) the Height (or thickness). This is the opposite of disc magnets, which have a Diameter greater than the Height. If you are looking for a flat, round magnet, take a look at our range of Disc Magnets.

Cylinder magnets are particularly useful in the field of nuclear magnetic imaging. They are built into grates, grills and filtration devices to remove unwanted metal contaminants from products and liquids. This process removes hazardous particles from food and beverage during production, and ensures health and safety protocols are followed. The use of cylinder magnets in Magnetic Separators also protects manufacturing and processing equipment from damage due to metal fragments.

AMF Magnets offers 4 types of Cylinder Magnets:

Neodymium Cylinder Magnets, sometime called rare earth cylinder magnets, come in a variety of sizes and grades. Neodymium cylinders are popular with the signage and display industry.

Ceramic Cylinder Magnets, also known as Ferrite cylinder magnets, have excellent resistance to demagnetization. Ceramic magnets are not as strong as Neodymium magnets, but they are less expensive.

Alnico Cylinder Magnets are not as strong as other some permanent magnets, but they have excellent temperature stability and very good resistance to corrosion.

Samarium Cobalt Cylinder Magnets are often used instead of Neodymium magnets because they can be subjected to higher temperatures without losing their magnetic power

The Pull Force listed for each magnet is based on lifting 10mm thick steel from a horizontal surface. Magnets on a vertical surface (of 10mm thick steel) are generally able to hold around only 30% of the pull force listed in the product description. This is due to the effects of gravity and the lack of friction between the surface and the shiny magnet. Read More
