Metal contamination is a common problem in the animal feed and grain industries. Practical and proven solutions will feature on stand A029 at the VICTAM International 2019 exhibition (Cologne, Germany June 12 – 14). The range of Master Magnets and Bunting Magnetic Separators and Metal Detectors both identify and capture problematic metal that is potentially dangerous to consume and can also cause explosions.
Metal contamination originates during farming and transportation and is often introduced into the process with the raw material. It is also introduced from plant breakdown and wear during the process.
Successfully detecting and removing metal contamination requires the installation of magnetic separators and metal detectors at critical stages within the process. The combination of different technology and designs enables optimum metal removal. This prevents damage to processing plant and also ensures a high-quality end product.
Magnetic Separators Removing Ferrous Metals
Magnetic separators capture and remove ferrous metal contamination and are commonly installed early in the process to capture. On stand A029 at VICTAM, is a wide range of high intensity, Neodymium Rare Earth Magnetic Separators including Drawer Filters, Draum Magnets, Plate Magnets, Bullet Magnets, and Pneumatic In Line Magnets (PIMS).
Detecting Metal Contamination
Later in the process, often during and after the packing stage, the material is passed through a Metal Detector. This identifies any rogue metal contamination, whether ferrous or non-ferrous in nature.
Once packed, the finished product is often conveyed through a final Metal Detector as a final check and additional details will be available on the stand.
Solving Metal Contamination Problems
“Although we have supplied metal separation solutions to the feed and grain industry for several decades, this is the first time we have exhibited at VICTAM,” said Dave Hills, the Bunting Europe Group’s Head of Sales. “Our magnetic separator and metal detector designs have developed over time to suit the industry’s arduous environment. We are looking forward to helping companies solve problems with proven technology.”
