Remko B Magnetic Iron

Remko B Magnetic Iron

Remko B Magnetic Iron

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.



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.
