Precautions Of Permanent Magnet Usage

Handling

 

Rare earth magnets are fragile and easily broken. Broken magnets are so sharp that they can cause cuts. These magnets are powerful and can accelerate at high speeds toward each other and on iron materials.

Always be careful when you store magnets, because the magnets will stick together, and they may pinch your fingers. When the magnets adsorb each other, they may damage the magnets themselves by collision. Rare earth magnets have strong magnetic fields, which will damage electronic devices and magnetic data storage media. They should be kept away from objects that are easily magnetized, electronic devices, computer disks, credit cards, computer monitors, watches, cellphones, pacemakers, and other medical devices.

Magnets with larger sizes should be covered with spacers between each piece to ensure that the magnets can be easily separated. Magnets should be stored in a dry, constant temperature environment.

 

Transportation


Magnets produce magnetic fields that interfere with the instruments on the airplane and affect the flight.

Therefore, in air transportation, the magnet must be packed with professional anti-magnetized packaging to shield magnetics, to ensure that the aircraft will not cause instrument deviation. And magnetic inspection should be done to the outer packing of the magnet before each shipment.

 

Safety


Rare-earth magnets should be kept out of reach of children and animals. Do not ingest or inhale magnets. Children should not be allowed to handle or play with rare-earth magnets.
