Original Press Release:

Pair Eriez® Rare Earth Magnetic Separators and Extremely Sensitive Metal Detectors to Achieve Unparalleled Protection against Metal Contaminants in Food/Sanitary Industry Applications

Erie, PA—For the most difficult food/sanitary industry applications requiring the highest level of protection against metal contamination, an Eriez® Rare Earth magnetic separator powered by Xtreme® RE7 alongside an Xtreme® Metal Detector Enhanced Platform (EP) is the solution. This ultimate “Double Team” enables processors to achieve maximum product purity.

Eriez’ new and improved Xtreme® RE7 magnet circuit has proven to be 13 to 40 percent stronger than other magnets on the market today in head-to-head pull tests.  The Eriez Xtreme RE7 magnet circuit is available in all Eriez Tubes, Grates and Liquid Line Traps.

The Xtreme Metal Detector EP is recommended for the harshest applications. With the ability to ignore signals generated by certain products that can cause typical metal detectors to detect metal where there is none, this state-of-the-art unit is able to detect the smallest of metals in the most challenging products.

The “Double Team” combination results in as close to a perfect product yield as possible. Working in conjunction, the magnet removes the ferrous contamination while the metal detector focuses on any ferrous missed by the magnet as well as nonferrous metals (i.e. aluminum, copper, brass, stainless steel).
