Packaging Industry

The final opportunity for removing or detecting metal contamination is at the packaging stage.  At this point, there are two opportunities to ensure that the finished product is metal-free.

  • As the product is being packed, Magnetic Separators such as Tube & Grid Magnets, Plate Magnets, and Bullet Magnets can be positioned in the process to capture tramp iron;
  • In some cases, where materials are being conveyed prior to packing, Overband Magnets can be installed over the belt, the conveyor head pulley can be replaced with a Pulley Magnet, or a Magnetic Drum can be built into the line. All these are self-cleaning designs;
  • As a final step, the packed material can be passed over or through a Metal Detector. This will detect any metal contamination and allow removal and recycling;
