Eriez designs and manufactures quality solutions for metal removal and material handling applications in the packaging industry. Whether a client is planning a new installation or upgrading an existing line, Eriez can advise on the best solution for the task in hand. A purpose-built, state-of-the-art laboratory enables testing of client samples to ensure the best solution is proposed in terms of economics and performance criteria.
Solutions for Metal Removal and Material Handling Applications in the Packaging Industry
The product portfolio includes vibratory feeders, metal detectors and magnetic separators.
The Eriez range of compact and energy-efficient electromagnetic vibratory feeders includes high speed models for unmatched performance in terms of quick stoppage, award-winning high deflection models to effortlessly handle awkward materials like powders, light and leafy or tacky products as well as robust models designed for heavy duty applications with high material loads. The drives for Eriez feeders are totally enclosed and are also suitable for sanitary / wash-down environments. They are sold worldwide through the company`s many affiliate operations so no matter where the equipment is destined, service and after-sales support are always immediate and on hand.
Metal Detectors Eliminate Metallic Contamination
The range of metal detectors available from Eriez includes tunnel, underbelt, drop-through and hand-held types to eliminate all forms of metallic contamination (ferrous, non-ferrous and stainless steel). Tunnel or aperture models can be supplied with or without integral conveyors and chutes. The new high sensitivity E-Z Tec models combine reliable performance, simple push-button controls and easy servicing. Hand-held Eriez Metalarm metal detectors are often sold in conjunction with aperture metal detectors in order to pinpoint the precise location of any metal detected. Drop-through or gravity feed models (such as the Eriez E-Z Tec 9100) are made to demanding specifications: they combine the advantages of a rapid reject system, thus ensuring minimal product wastage, compact construction and high sensitivity.
Magnetic Separators Separate Ferrous Metals and Protect Product Purity
Magnetic separators incorporating either ferrite or powerful Rare Earth magnetic elements are employed to separate ferrous metals and protect product purity through the various stages of processing and packaging. This range includes plate magnets, tube magnets, grate magnets, chute magnets and pipeline magnets.
Permanent Magnetic Plates Protect Against Small-Size Contaminants
Permanent magnetic plates, available in several magnetic strengths and with various design options, including stainless steel and sanitary construction as well as with tapered step and barrier strip, protect against medium and small-size contaminants in dry or wet free-flowing products. They can be installed in chutes, ducts, pipelines and feed tables or can be suspended over conveyor belts. Variations on the ERIEZ MAGNETICS EUROPE LTD. include magnetic humps and round pipe separators. Magnetic humps feature two plate magnets which are placed in a dogleg housing to increase iron removal efficiency. They effectively remove tramp iron from pneumatically conveyed material or for applications where large volumes of free-flowing materials fall by gravity. Round pipe separators make the installation of plate magnets in round gravity flow chutes extremely simple and economical. By building the magnet into a housing, designed for efficient and effective tramp iron removal they eliminate installation expense and assure good separation results.
Cartridge Magnets Remove Tramp Iron in Pneumatic Pipelines
Cartridge magnets are ideal for removing tramp iron from dry, free-flowing products conveyed in pneumatic pipelines. Material enters the housing, is distributed by a solid stainless steel cone and passes close to the cartridge where ferrous contamination is attracted and held by the magnet while the clean product travels past the magnet and out of the housing. The contamination remains on the magnet until the cartridge is removed and cleaned.
Permanent Tube Magnets Protect against Fine Iron and Tramp Metal
Permanent tube magnets provide effective protection against fine iron and tramp metal contamination in dry or wet applications. These are available in ferrite, standard, Megastrength and now Xtreme Rare Earth materials. The new Xtreme magnet circuit surpasses previous models with its greater holding force, higher Gauss rating and improved separation efficiency. For customers in the process and packaging industries, the increased power of Xtreme Rare Earth magnets has a direct and positive impact on product purity and plant productivity. Recent comparative tests (``Performance Testing of Rare Earth Magnetic Tube Circuits`` conducted by Pennsylvania State University Behrend Campus) showed that with a Gauss rating of over 11,400 the Xtreme has 10% more strength than existing magnets- at no increase in cost. Eriez magnetic tubes are robust, durable and guaranteed for life (except for thermal or mechanical shock). They are also available as easy to clean, sanitary versions. Tubes can be arranged into trap magnets for liquid lines or grate magnets for dry processes. Grates in housing are designed for simple installation in steep-sloped hoppers, odd and irregular shaped hoppers, floor openings, vertical closed chutes and ducts.
