Particle Magnet

The particle magnet is mounted in tracks to avoid malfunction and disturbances in the electrical equipment due to particles abraded from rail and wheels. The particle magnet is normally mounted on both sides of an insulated joint or in sharp curves. The abraded small particles are effectively absorbed by the strong magnets. The particle magnet is very easy to rinse and no special tools are needed. Tests in areas where the particle magnet has been placed, have shown a dramatically reduced amount of malfunctions and disturbances due to abraded particles.

The particle magnet is developed in collaboration with the Swedish Transport Administration.
