Pairing Eriez Metal Detectors with Magnetic Separators provides unsurpassed protection from metal contamination in light industry applications.

The LIQUISCAN VF+ is a metal separator for filling applications. When metal is detected, the separator valve automatically redirects the contaminated product into a special container. LIQUISCAN VF+ metal separators are supplied mounted on a mobile, height-adjustable stand. The low center of gravity and balanced design ensures good stability, especially when the system is moved. 

Simple, cost effective magnet assembly incorporates Erium™ Ceramic or Rare Earth Tube magnets into a grate assembly to remove ferrous contamination from free flowing products as it cascades through the grate.

The RAPID metal detector is used for the inspection of bulk materials in free-fall conveyor pipes. It detects all magnetic and non-magnetic metal contaminations (steel, stainless steel, aluminium, ...) - even if such contaminations are embedded in the product. Metal contaminations are rejected by means of a swivel hopper.

Eriez' offers a broad range of Plate Magnets for food manufacturing which remove unwanted ferrous metals, protect equipment from damage and improve the downstream processing purity of your product. Eriez plate magnets are available in five magnetic strengths. These magnets can be installed in chutes, feed tables and over conveyor belts. These are ideal for food manufacturing to eliminate costly metals and foreign objects in your product streamline. Sizes range from 4 to 72-inches (102 to 1828mm) and are available in stainless steel and sanitary construction, with tapered steps and removable face plates.

Double row tube magnet in drawer style grate. Designed for closed chutes and ducts, this double bank model comes complete with removable deflector grid, handle, and latch.

Determining your facility’s risks is the first step to preventing product contamination. However, once risk is determined, an assessment should be completed to determine the areas where the most foreign materials can enter a food manufacturing or processing line. This podcast offers insight to limiting your food making facility’s risk factors of foreign body contamination.

During an interview at PACK EXPO 2014, Rob Tiernay, Director of Sales for North America at Anritsu Industrial Solutions USA, discussed with Todd and Todd what to consider when choosing technology for contamination detection. 

In an interview at 2014’s PACK EXPO, Viggo Nielsen, General Manager at Mettler Toledo Safeline, took time to speak with Todd Schnick and Todd Youngblood about the effects FSMA regulations are having on food packaging and inspection. 

In an interview at PACK EXPO, Keith Rhodes, President, Magnetic Products, Inc., discusses the impact of the 2011 Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA) and what manufacturers can do to improve food quality and safety.
