Bunting® Designs High Temperature Machine-Mounted All-Metal Separator

NEWTON, KS - Bunting® Magnetics Co. has designed and created a new High Temperature Machine-Mounted All-Metal Separator (MMS). This metal detection product, which can handle temperatures up to 300° degrees, works on applications within the plastics industry by mounting on the throat of extruders, injection and blow molders.

The Bunting® High-Temp Machine-Mounted All-Metal Separator provides efficient rejection of both ferrous and nonferrous metal contaminants. The MMS is designed especially for choke-feed applications where the product is at a higher than normal temperature. It bolts directly to the in-feed of processing equipment and supports the weight of hoppers and other auxiliary equipment. A fast pneumatic rejection mechanism aided by precise timing results in accurate cycling and conservation of good material.

"We have seen a significant increase in the number of applications with dryers that emit temperatures up to 300° degrees," stated Joey Reed, Bunting® Product Manager for Metal Detection. "There are very few metal detector manufacturers providing this type of unit. So, we felt it was critical to meet this rising demand."

This product features a rugged housing and a unique slide gate reject design which eliminates contaminant "leaks".
