Press release date: January 23, 2010

Erie, Pa. - Customers who want to witness firsthand the effectiveness of X-Ray technology can submit product samples for testing and receive an instantaneous analysis from EriezĀ®, world authority in magnetic, vibratory and inspection applications. The sample testing is undertaken at Eriez' Technical Center, adjacent to the headquarters facility in Erie, Pennsylvania. Since it first went into operation in 1964, the Eriez Technical Center has conducted application tests numbering in the tens of thousands on all types of materials and processes. The laboratory features more than 100 types of permanent magnetic, electromagnetic, vibratory, screening, metal detection and X-Ray systems. Once a product is submitted for X-Ray testing, there are a number of evaluation steps involved to determine the machine's ability to detect miniscule contaminants within the sample.

Lab workers at the Technical Center will conduct a variety of tests on different models of X-Ray equipment and immediately share results with customers. This is achieved via a secured online Web site where customers can view the testing and be active participants.
