Eriez Incorporates New Breakthrough Metal Detection and Magnetic Separation Technology to Create Powerful Systems for Pet Food Processing Applications

Press Release:
  Mar 22, 2016 — With recent improvements to Eriez’ line of metal detection and magnetic separation equipment, the company now offers the most powerful systems available for pet food processing applications. Eriez® state-of-the-art magnetic separation and metal detection equipment is implemented in various stages throughout pet food processing to identify and eliminate metal contamination.

“Eriez continues to lead the industry by constantly advancing our separation technologies,” says Eric Confer, Product Manager-Magnetic Separation. “Head-to-head pull tests prove our new and improved Xtreme® RE7 Tube Magnet Circuit is up to 40 percent stronger than other magnets currently on the market.” He adds, “Eriez’ newest generation of Xtreme Metal Detectors feature benchmark-setting sensitivities and provide the greatest dollar-for-dollar value of any detector offered today.”

Eriez recommends a systems approach to ensure ultimate product purity in pet food processing applications. “Magnets and metal detectors provide optimum results when used together,” says John Klinge, Market Manager-Light Industry. “Magnets remove ferrous contamination and work-hardened stainless steel out of the raw material stage. Given that the metal is now thinned out, the metal detector can do a better job of finding any nonferrous metals—such as aluminum, copper and brass—as well as any ferrous materials missed by the magnet.”

Specific Eriez equipment used in pet food processing applications includes Xtreme Metal Detectors, Drums in Housing, Hump Magnets, Grate Magnets, Deep Reach Magnets and Vibratory Feeders and Conveyors. Eriez experts provide free plant audits and work with customers to gain a thorough understanding of their toughest processing challenges. The Eriez team can then recommend the right mix of equipment to meet the customer’s specific needs. Eriez builds all of its own equipment and has the knowledge and experience to provide unparalleled service and support after the sale.
