Ironing out ferrous contamination

(This story was originally published on Australian Mining)

MagShield is bridging the gap left by standard media filters to tackle ferrous contamination in the Australian mining industry head-on.

Ferrous contamination is an issue that has plagued heavy industry for decades. As metal components go through regular wear and tear, microscopic iron particles leach into essential fluids that keep Australia’s most critical mining equipment running.

This contamination wreaks havoc on machinery systems and leads to significant damage, increased downtime and eventual breakdown.

While original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) fit mining machinery with standard media filters, most aren’t up to the task of handling ferrous contamination, leading to billions of dollars lost every year in downtime and replacement costs across Australia.

But MagShield has a vision to work with pre-fitted media filters to fight ferrous contamination and rid the industry of its iron plight. That’s why MagShield takes its motto ‘Best Practice for Fluid Contamination Control’ seriously.

The solution is simple: fitted ahead of the factory filter, a pre-filter acts as a magnetic shield (Mag-Shield) to attract metallic particles as fluid passes through the machine, continuously keeping it clear and on track.

Bay 6 is now MagShield: A New Era of Innovation

We are pleased to announce an exciting new chapter in our company’s growth: BAY6 Solutions has evolved to become MagShield.

The change came about from rapid growth and global expansion, and it was time to create a central brand that our growing customer base could identify with. Exciting new things were ever-evolving for us, and we needed a refresh that would see us into the next phase.

BAY6 Solutions created an incredible platform and foundation for us to launch into our new identity – MagShield. With our solid reputation grown from BAY6 Solutions, MagShield was able to forge ahead in the global market.

MagShield & Bay 6 SolutionsMagShield

Why We’re Rebranding

We have been offering our range of high-quality asset protection and diagnostic solutions since our conception in Canada in 2009. We started life under the original company name, BAY6 Solutions, which saw us grow and build a solid reputation in the industry.

We were growing, tackling a global market, which empowered us to take a more targeted focus on manufacturing a range of high-quality asset protection and diagnostic solutions that deliver superior magnetic filtration.

So, we wanted to create a clear forward focus for the company, and rebrand, refresh, and reinvigorate what we stood for. That’s how the rebranded MagShield was born.

It’s MagShield that we are best known for, it is a symbol of our quality and commitment to providing superior products to the market. Therefore, it was a clear decision to have this as our identity to surge forward into the global arena.


What This Means For Our Products

Today, MagShield proudly takes its place as part of the Enviro Technologies Group, servicing a global customer base from offices in Australasia, North America, Brazil, China, Europe, and India, and the rebrand allows us to better focus on how we deliver MagShield products to our customers.


It might be a different name, but it is still the same commitment to exceptional quality and service.


It’s time to evolve, and we’re excited to have you on the journey with us.
