Remko B Magnetic Iron

Remko B Magnetic Iron

Remko B Magnetic Iron

(OP)
I am currently looking for a replacement for SKF Remko B magnetic iron and was wondering if anyone knows of any alternatives.  It is being used on a DC electromagnetic relay, and I need the same magnetic properties.

RE: Remko B Magnetic Iron

I'm not familiar with the SKF product, and couldn't find a straight cross reference.  However, Carpenter Makes a complete line of specialty magnetic irons, and alloys.

See:

If you cannot find what you need on the web site, one of their applications engineers should be able to help you with the cross reference.

RE: Remko B Magnetic Iron

A quick email to a former colleague of mine that works in Europe netted the following:

Remko B would be equivalent to Carpenter Pure Electrical Iron

Remko A would be equivalent to Carpenter Vacumet Core Iron.

Either would work well in a relay application.  I don't think the minor improvements of a vacumm melted core iron justify it's price tag for a typical relay (assuming it's not for the space program, or something else unusual.)

You should be able to use Carpenter Electrical Iron.  If machinability is a primary concern, then Carpenter Electrical Iron FM would be the choice to make.
