New Eriez Brochure Features Equipment Solutions for the Plastics and Rubber Industry

Press release date: July 12, 2014

Erie, PA - A new brochure from Eriez showcases the extensive variety of magnetic separation, metal detection and material handling equipment the company offers to improve efficiency, purity and profitability in plastics and rubber industry applications. “Equipment for the Plastics Rubber Industry” is now available free from Eriez in both downloadable and hard copy format.

The six-page, full-color piece organizes products into three equipment classifications: Magnetic Separators, Metal Detectors & Separators and Vibratory Feeders, Screeners & Conveyors. Along with a comprehensive overview of each line, the brochure spotlights specific products available in each category. Full descriptions and photos are presented for each featured item.

“Equipment for the Plastics & Rubber Industry” includes a helpful flowchart which illustrates the various locations where Eriez separation equipment should be located throughout a typical plastics processing operation to effectively protect against all types of metal contamination. The full-page flowchart covers each stage of the process - from unloading resin to final packaging.

The brochure also includes a special section devoted to Eriez PolyMag. It describes how the innovative PolyMag Process renders the plastic resin magnetic with an additive (high-concentration pellets) in a process similar to adding color concentrate. The quantity of the magnetic additive is extremely small and does not affect the physical properties of the plastic. PolyMag Magnetic Separators may be used to sort various types and/or colors of plastics. Eriez' PolyMag additives can be utilized to impart metal detectability, x-ray contrast and magnetic susceptibility into plastic moldings to prevent plastic contaminated food products from reaching the consumer.

The back page of the literature focuses on Eriez’ worldwide system of manufacturing, sales and service. It offers highlights of Eriez’ 5-Star Service Center, EriezXpress™ quick-ship/stock product program and the Eriez Technical Center.
