Metal Separators are designed for plastics industry.

Press Release Summary:

As electronic, triple-coil metal detectors, Machine-Mounted Separator (MMS) systems sense and remove ferrous and non-ferrous metals from moving virgin and regrind material. Units reject contaminants as small as 0.5 mm and may be installed directly at infeed of extrusion, injection, and blow molding machines. Able to work with gravity and pneumatic systems, cube-shaped MMS units employ pneumatically driven slide gate combined with venturi-driven vacuum rejection mechanism.

Bunting Intros New Machine-Mounted All-Metal Separator

NEWTON, KS - Bunting Magnetics Co. has introduced a new Machine-Mounted Separator (MMS), which is an electronic metal detector designed for the plastics industry. These Machine-Mounted Separators are engineered to detect and reject all types of metal contaminants and can be installed directly at the infeed of extrusion, injection, and blow molding machines. Compact, cube-shaped MMS units fit where headroom is limited and work with both gravity and pneumatic systems. Their sturdy construction is designed to support the weight of hoppers, conveying components, mixers, and other equipment.

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.

Bunting will feature its new Machine-Mounted All-Metal Separator this June at NPE 2006: The International Plastics Showcase in Chicago. Please visit Bunting at Booth 4609 for more information on this new product.
