    Magnetic Separators: What Are The Proper Steps To Test Magnetic Strength?

    Food manufacturing companies invest millions of dollars annually into food magnetic separation equipment, proactively reducing the risk that any foreign object or contaminant will be embedded into a food product sold to grocery stores, restaurants, retailers, or general consumers. Manufacturers of food industrial magnets have adopted standard testing equipment that measures the holding force of a magnet. Here are some rules to follow to make sure you are using standard operating procedure when field testing magnetic strength to attain the most accurate results.
