Ensuring Pet Food is metal free before it reaches the consumer is critical. However, reports of foods being recalled due to metal contamination occur several times each year.  To assist processors and producers, Bunting has developed a series of typical plant flowsheets showing proposed locations for Magnetic Separators and Metal Detectors including a typical Pet Food Processing Plant.…

Bunting Magnetics Bauma

Magnetic minerals and fine iron have plagued ceramic producers since the first glazed pot was produced many thousands of years ago.  Early ceramicists adopted elaborate and colourful patterns to cover any imperfections caused by such contamination.  Over time, the demand for white or single coloured ceramic products increased, making disguising any imperfection increasingly difficult. Ceramic…

6-Year-Old Electro Overband Magnet Refurbishment

Repair and refurbishment convert a well-used, functional magnetic separator into almost new, further extending the life of the equipment.  One of Bunting’s latest repair and refurbishment projects involved a 6-year-old Electro Overband Magnet. The oil-cooled Electro Overband Magnet model 155 OCW 45 CB separates tramp ferrous metal from biomass pellets in a bulk handling terminal…

Wet High Intensity Magnetic Separation Testing

The electromagnetic laboratory-scale Wet High Intensity Magnetic Separator (WHIMS) removes fine magnetics and para-magnetics from mineral slurries.  Handling minerals in a slurry or suspension is preferable for many processors, especially when beneficiation involves wet processing.  Additionally, a wet process often produces a better separation for very fine materials. In this educational video, Professor Neil Rowson…
