Cutting contaminants

bunting magnetics

Bunting Magnetics is helping to solve the problem of metal con­tamination with its range of separation equipment, including magnetic separators and metal detectors, which were on show at the recent plastics and rubber trade fair, K 2016, in Germany.

Metal contamination is a com­mon problem within the plastics and rubber industries, causing product defects and damaging processing equipment. The type of metal can range from small fine pieces to larger screws or nuts and bolts.

Dave Hills, head of sales, said: “We wanted to show the separation capabilities of our equip­ment. It is one thing to say a piece of ferrous or non-ferrous metal will be separated, but another to actually show it happening.

“With the separator, metal-contaminated plastic was gravity-fed into a feed hopper and then into a FF drawer magnet. Here magnetic particles were captured before the remaining plastic fell into the detector, which iden­tified and rejected any non-ferrous metals.”
