Eriez Magnetics Magnet Auditing Service

Attention to food purity has never been greater, making it imperative for manufacturers to detect and eliminate foreign objects and ferrous metals such as needles, rust, nails, scale, work-hardened stainless and bolts, well before the end product reaches the consumer.

The use of permanent magnetic separators helps draw out fine tramp metal along critical points of the production line. These separators come in different styles and in various magnetic strengths, depending on the application. Periodically, they should all be tested to confirm their strength and to ensure compliance with current international food safety standards.

Eriez conducts magnet audits for food manufacturing companies across Australia, using procedures and documentation recommended by HACCP International. Certifications can be provided that give producers the documentation necessary to demonstrate their efforts to maintain product purity.

Eriez offers magnet pull tests and application inspection. On completion, our technicians will provide a report which includes a validated test certificate. Even if it is not an Eriez product, Eriez specialists will audit your magnetic separation equipment, evaluate its effectiveness and offer recommendations that could improve the separation performance. They will check the physical condition of the magnet, access and address any safety concerns. The specialists will also test the magnet’s strength and if possible, compare to previous audits or OEM specifications to confirm it is still as strong as when first installed. More importantly, the company can provide recommendations and advice regarding HACCP International Food Safety Standards. Pull tests are an essential quality control tool used to monitor magnet strength to ensure optimum performance.
