Metal Detector/Magnetic Separator “Double Team” Systems

Eriezintroduces two new metal detector/magnetic separator “Double Team” systems, which offer customers protection against ferrous and nonferrous metal contamination. In both of these system configurations, the metal detector and the magnetic separator work in conjunction to reportedly produce as close to a perfect product yield as possible.

The first new system is a magnetic B trap followed by an Xtreme liquid line metal detector. The magnet removes the ferrous contamination from the pumped liquid product, improving product quality and minimizing rejected material from the downstream metal detector with automatic rejection. The metal detector is left to focus on detecting and rejecting nonmagnetic tramp metals, such as aluminum and stainless steel.

The other new system pairs a magnetic grate-in-housing with an Xtreme gravity-drop vertical metal detector. The magnet removes the ferrous contamination from the gravity-dropped material, thus enhancing product quality and reducing rejected material from the downstream metal detector with auto reject. The metal detector’s primary function is to detect and reject non-magnetic tramp metals including aluminum and stainless steel.

Both systems provide a rapid return on investment and boost productivity and profitability through reduced downtime and improved product quality, according to the company. For customers in the food processing industry, Eriez “Double Team” systems ensure compliance with Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Point (HACCP) programs and regulations set forth by various federal agencies.

Eriez designed these new systems to meet common application challenges. However, there are a wide range of Eriez “Double Team” combinations being successfully utilized in various light industry settings. Eriez metal contamination control experts work closely with customers to design the ideal system based on their unique application needs and requirements.
