Eriez has launched two metal detector/magnetic separator systems which hope to protect against ferrous and nonferrous metal contamination.
In both of these system configurations by Eriez, the metal detector and the magnetic separator work in conjunction to produce a product yield. 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 non-magnetic tramp metals such as aluminum and stainless steel. The other system pairs a Magnetic Grate-in-Housing with a metal detector. The magnet removes the ferrous contamination from the gravity-dropped material, which should enhance product quality and reduce rejected material from the downstream metal detector. The metal detector’s primary function is to detect and reject non-magnetic tramp metals including aluminum and stainless steel.
