MAGNATTACK systems for detection of work-hardened stainless steel fragments

Monday, 08 August, 2016 | Supplied by: Magnattack Global

Adequate procedures and cutting-edge magnetic separation and metal detection equipment are essential for control of weakly magnetic fragments including work-hardened stainless steel and magnetic stone fragments, maintaining food safety and protecting products and brands.

With an increased focus in hygiene, operator safety and lean manufacturing practices, the necessary combination of both ultrahigh-intensity and properly endorsed magnet systems along with highly sensitive metal detectors and X-ray units provide the food and beverage industry with the necessary tools to successfully control foreign matter detection.

Most stainless steel fragments and wires of 3 mm in size and under are usually work-hardened and often go undetected by metal detectors. Modern ultrahigh-intensity >11,000 gauss certified magnets fill this gap and allow for such foreign matter, including magnetic stone and wear iron, to be extracted magnetically to further reduce the serious risk of contamination, product recall and brand name damage.

MAGNATTACK Global specialises in design and manufacture of ultrahigh-intensity RE80 >11,000 gauss magnet systems of both manual and self-cleaning designs, engineered to ensure fine ferrous metal and fine magnetic fragments are extracted and retained in critical applications both prior to processing and at final packing off of products.

Further advantages of RE80 self-cleaning magnet systems include the overall reduction in nuisance metal detector trips prior to packing, as >11,000 gauss magnet systems, positioned strategically upstream of final magnets and metal detectors, extract most of the foreign ferrous matter prior to the detection process reducing the time and effort involved in locating contaminated product within bulk bags and bins.

In addition, high intensity self-cleaning magnets in strategic upstream positions prior to high impact machinery, such as milling operations, will offer good protection to machinery against risks of damage and dust explosion caused by metal entering high-impact machinery and relieve the load on downstream magnets, making them much more effective.

MAGNATTACK works with food industry engineers to ensure magnet systems are adequately designed and manufactured in accordance with current HACCP and engineering standards.
