With recent improvements to Eriez’ line of metal detection and magnetic separation equipment, the company now more powerful systems 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, including its improved. Xtreme RE7 Tube Magnet Circuit and its newest generation of Xtreme Metal Detectors, which features benchmark-setting sensitivities and value.

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,” said 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.
