Press Release Summary:
Designed for plastics industry applications with limited headroom, low-profile Machine-Mounted Separators (MMS) detect and reject all types of conductive metal contaminants down to 0.5 mm. They incorporate pneumatically driven slide gate combined with venturi-driven vacuum rejection mechanism. Installed at infeed of extrusion, injection, and blow molding machines, these triple-coil metal detectors suit choke feed applications on gravity systems.

Machine-Mounted Separators Remove Ferrous, Nonferrous Metals
NEWTON, KS - Low-profile Machine-Mounted Separators (MMS), by Bunting Magnetics Co., are engineered to detect and reject all types of metal contaminants, but fit where headroom is limited. The electronic metal detectors, which are designed for the plastics industry, can be installed directly at the infeed of extrusion, injection, and blow molding machines. Their compact, cube shape ensures versatility, while their sturdy construction is designed to support the weight of hoppers, conveying components, mixers, and other equipment. MMS units are designed for "choke feed" applications on gravity systems.
Bunting Machine-Mounted All-Metal Separators are highly sensitive, triple-coil metal detectors engineered to sense and remove both ferrous and nonferrous metals - including iron, stainless steel, aluminum, copper, brass, lead, and tin - from moving virgin and regrind material. Units react to all conductive metals and reject contaminants as small as 0.5 mm. Unlike some competitive units that have a blind-spot during their rejection phase that allows contaminants to slip past, the Bunting Machine-Mounted All-Metal Separator features a fast pneumatically driven slide gate combined with a venturi-driven vacuum rejection mechanism. This unique design results in highly accurate detection and rejection. By helping to prevent metal scrap from entering processing machines and contaminating final product, these separators reduce costly machine damage and downtime and increase overall production efficiency.
