The consequences of foreign bodies in food production processes are often incalculable; they range from machine damage and production stops to product rejections, damage claims and product recalls. A metal detector does not detect very fine (<2 mm) metal particles in food, but a magnetic separator filters even stainless steel particles as small as 30 µm from fine powders and liquids.
The result is a spotless, high-quality end product that meets all requirements. EHEDG and HACCP guidelines for the food industry are also met. The timely magnetic removal of metal contamination also prevents product failures at the end of a production line.
Goudsmit Magnetics makes various magnetic systems for the food industry, among others. This video explains the differences between the magnetic filter systems.
