High Temp and Magnets

High Temp and Magnets

High Temp and Magnets

I've done a bit of research on the effect of temp on a material's magnetism, but I really need yes or no answer.  Is is pointless to try to pick up an iron piece that is around 1600 deg F with a magnet.  The curie temp is 1420 deg F so iron's ferromagnetism disappears, but paramagnetism remains.  Can I exploit paramagnetism to achieve the same ends?  Thanks.

RE: High Temp and Magnets

You could defect the path of iron particles, but you will not be able to pick them up.  The para forces are less than the mass.

Corrosion never sleeps, but it can be managed.

RE: High Temp and Magnets

As EdStainless said, a paramagnetic material will not be attracted to a magnet in any measurable sense.

Just wanted to mention: If you had planned to use a permanent magnet to pick up the iron, the magnet would demagnetize when brought near-to or in-contact with the iron at that temperature.  The Curie point of Alnico is 1580 degF.

RE: High Temp and Magnets

I presumed that the magnet would be cooled.

These effects are fun to play with.  Some liquid gases have similar properties.

EdStainless, MagMike:
  Thanks for your help.
