ERIE, Pennsylvania – Matching a powerful magnetic separator alongside a highly sensitive metal detector is the best defense against unwanted tramp metal which can be dangerous and damage expensive equipment. The double team of Eriez metal detector and magnetic separator combination provides unparalleled protection of valuable crushers and downstream equipment.

Why install both? Neither a magnetic separator nor a metal detector is 100% effective in removing metal contamination. Pairing the two pieces of equipment together is the solution to achieving the most complete removal of troublesome tramp metal possible.

Metal contamination comes from a variety of sources. Broken ore can contain metal pieces created by blasting. Contamination may originate within the plant because of material processing, granulating, shredding or general abrasion. There’s also the human factor. Inevitably, items such as coins, pens and processing tools will occasionally fall into the product stream.

Eriez engineers work with customers to create the perfect double team of Eriez metal detector and magnetic separator combination for their specific application needs. Contact the company to learn more. For online users, visit Eriez.com or send email to eriez@eriez.com.
