Neodymium Iron Boron (Ndfeb)

Neodymium iron boron alloy

Like NdFeB (an alloy of neodymium, iron, and boron), various alloys keep their domains aligned and are used to make permanent magnets.

Rare earth magnets based upon neodymium–iron–boron (NdFeB) are employed in much clean energy and high tech applications ...

This paper outlines the potential for the recycling of rare earth permanent magnets.

•Hydrogen can be used to efficiently extract NdFeB magnets from electrical devices.

•Hydrogen decrepitation reduces the magnets to a demagnetized hydrogenated powder.

•The hydrogenated powder can be re-processed into new NdFeB magnets.

•Re-processing includes re-sintering, HDDR, re-casting, or refining the alloy powder.


The European Union and the United States have identified the rare earth metals as being at greatest supply risk of all the materials for clean energy technologies.

Of particular concern are neodymium and dysprosium, both of which are employed in neodymium–iron–boron-based magnets.

Recycling magnets based on these materials and contained within obsolete electronic equipment could provide an additional and secure supply.

In the present work, hydrogen has been employed as a processing agent to decrepitate sintered neodymium–iron–boron-based magnets contained within hard disk drives into a demagnetized, hydrogenated powder.

This powder was then extracted mechanically from the devices with an extraction efficiency of 90 ± 5% and processed further using a combination of sieves and ball bearings, to produce a powder containing <330 parts per million of nickel contamination.

It is then possible for the extracted powder to be re-processed in several ways, namely, directly by blending and re-sintering to form fully dense magnets, by Hydrogenation, Disproportionation, Desorption, Recombination processing to produce an anisotropic coercive powder suitable for bonded magnets, by re-melting;

or by chemical extraction of the rare earth elements from the alloy.

For example, it was shown that, by the re-sintering route, it was possible to recover >90% of the magnetic properties of the starting material with significantly less energy than that employed in primary magnet production.

The particular route used will depend upon the magnetic properties required, the level of contamination of the extracted material, and the compositional variation of the feedstock.

The various possibilities have been summarised in a flow diagram.

neodymium magnet gauss

Tesla is a unit of the magnetic field.

Another unit of the magnetic field is a gauss.

A refrigerator magnet is 100 gauss, a strong refrigerator magnet.

The typical strength of the Earth's magnetic field at its surface is around half a gauss.

So those are everyday units of magnetic fields.

There are 10,000 gausses in one tesla.

The magnets that we have here at the Magnet Lab range anywhere from 20 teslas all the way up to to 45 teslas for DC fields.

In pulsed fields, they can go as high as 100 Tesla, and even higher.

So the magnets that we have at the Magnet Lab are much stronger than what you'd find in everyday life.

And it's even more impressive when you realize that the energy required to produce a magnetic field goes like the square of the magnetic field.

So to go from a 1 tesla to a 10-tesla magnet requires 100 times more energy.

Nikola Tesla was a scientist around the turn of the century, and the designation for magnetic field is named after him.

What Is the Gauss Rating for a Strong Magnet?

The gauss is a measure of the strength of magnetic fields, relating force, length, and electric current.

It is used to conveniently measure weak fields, such as a small permanent magnet.

Because it’s a small unit, strong magnets will result in large measurements in gauss.


A gauss is a unit of magnetic field strength named after mathematician Carl F.Gauss.

It’s useful for dealing with relatively weak magnetic forces.

The Earth’s magnetic field measures a few gausses.

Magnet Strength

super n52 custom shape magnet rare earth

The stronger the magnet, the denser its magnetic field.

Its field produces forces in other magnets and in metals.

Permanent Magnets

Currently, the strongest permanent magnets are those made with rare-earth metals such as neodymium.

Their magnetic strength can be more than 14,000 gausses.

This figure can also be stated as 14 Kilogauss (KGs).


Magnets used in Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) machines are electromagnets that are supercooled with liquid helium.

They are the strongest magnets in regular use, running 20,000 to 70,000 gauss.


Special magnets are used in scientific research to test the limits of magnet construction techniques and materials.

The strongest experimental magnets run about 45 teslas or 450,000 gausses.

neodymium magnet grade

All magnet materials demonstrate reversible strength loss as they approach Maximum Operating Temperature.

* NOTE: Unshielded open circuit ceramic magnets should not be subjected to more than 400°F.

For as pressed material, tolerance on the thickness (direction of magnetization) is ± .005.

Other dimensions are ± 2.5% or ± .010, whichever is greater.

According to IMA standards, visual imperfections such as hairline cracks, porosity, and minor chips are commonly found in sintered metallic magnets.

A chipped edge is considered acceptable if no more than 10% of the surface is missing.

Cracks are acceptable as long as they do not extend across more than 50% of the pole surface.

Magnetizing and Handling

Ceramic magnet material is extremely brittle and can chip or break if dropped on a hard surface, or if allowed to “jump at” an attractive object.

Handle with care.

The weakest grade of ceramic material is grade 1, which is typically non-oriented.

Grades 5 and 8 are oriented ceramic materials.

Grade 8 is the strongest ceramic magnet material available (Refer to properties chart below).

When making magnetic assemblies with ceramic, it is typically easier for production purposes to magnetize the product after assembly.


Since ceramic material is so brittle, it requires special machining techniques and equipment.

We are fully equipped to cut and grind ceramic material to your specifications.

Super Strong Neodymium Ferromagnetic Separator For Magnetic Pulley/drum

The permanent magnetic belt conveyors are designed to remove magnetic materials during crushing, screening, and sorting. With a lifetime warranty on the magnetic strength, a stainless steel housing, and proprietary magnetic circuitry, the magnetic conveyor belts are offered in both Ceramic and Rare Earth magnet materials and are built to last and endure the toughest environments and high volume material flows.

Magnetic belt conveyors effectively convey the ferrous objects on high speed horizontal and inclined to vertical conveyor belts.

Below the conveying belt, there is a permanent rail that attracts the ferrous objects to the belt.

This magnetic attraction acts as a clamping force against the conveyor.

This causes the ferrous objects to move with the belt and able to overcome any angle of incline or decline.

Conveyors are available with different belt widths.
