    Due to aggressive competition in the marketplace, Fernox needed to reduce application costs to remain competitive. Goudsmit UK were appointed to lead a project focused on improving the cost and performance of the magnet assembly currently manufactured by Goudsmit UK used within a magnetic filtration product.  The team at Goudsmit UK were very supportive in this objective, providing their expertise to help improve cost while maintaining excellent performance. Initially, a meeting was held to discuss the design requirements which set the basis for the extensive technical support provided. This support consisted of detailed flow simulation work completed based on discussed concepts. From here, Goudsmit Engineers presented the in-depth findings to the Fernox team and provided samples for testing. After testing, design changes were implemented and a successful outcome has been achieved. Goudsmit UK’s ability to understand Fernox’s requirements partnered with their technical capabilities also allowed Fernox to gain time savings, better lead times and increase their in-house knowledge and expertise.  Fernox have paused the existing magnet assembly production to implement the design changes found through the project.

    “Thank you for all your help, support, and expertise!”
