Nut Manufacturer Installs Magnetic Separation Equipment To Avoid Contamination Risks

Beverages and foods from tree nuts are becoming a dietary delight in the U.S. and abroad. So it’s not surprising that a California company, which started as a tree nut orchard, has blossomed into a multi-million dollar operation.

Based in Woodland, CA, Cache Creek Foods has all of its processing centers located in a 60,000-sq.-ft. production facility. The third-generation family-owned business churns out 50 million pounds of natural tree-nut based products annually, requiring constant attention detecting and eliminating any source of contamination, according to Carl Hartmangruber, plant manager.

Over the last several years, Cache Creek has installed a variety of Eriez metal detectors and magnetic separation equipment to maintain product purity. The Cache Creek system now includes two Eriez Xtreme® Metal Detectors, an Xtreme Liquid Line Metal Detector and a series of ProGrade® Grate Magnets, Plate Magnets and Liquid Line Trap Magnets.
