Grains and Milling

Grains and Milling

MPI provides magnetic separators and Metal Detectors throughout grain and flour-milling facilities to remove tramp iron from product including Drawer magnets, Drum magnets, Free-flow magnets, Grates and tube magnets, Liquid conveying magnets, Plate magnets, Magnetic chutes, Pneumatic conveying systems and Magnetic rotary feeders. Although the obvious function of the equipment is to prevent tramp iron from inclusion in final products, removal of metal particles also protects plant equipment from damage.

The job and location of the magnet will vary depending upon the process and the setting. Magnets are typically found in three areas (application sites) within a facility:

  1. Primary applications, where incoming grain arrives at the plant receiving areas.
  2. Secondary applications, where grain enters the plant for processing.
  3. Finishing applications, where processed grain, now flour or another end-product, is packaged or loaded into trucks for distribution to end users

The function of the magnet varies among these three applications and can best be detailed by looking at the chart below:

Application Function of magnetic equipment Location
Primary
  • Process high volume product flows
  • Remove incoming tramp iron
  • Retain large volumes of tramp iron between magnet cleaning cycles
Plant receiving area
Secondary
  • Protect specific plant equipment
  • Detect process equipment malfunctions
Hammer mills, airlocks, screw and drag conveyors, sifters, roller mills, bucket elevators, screeners, pumps
Finishing
  • Maintain end-product quality to ensure that the product shipped from the plant does not contain any tramp iron
Packing systems and bulk load-out areas

Recycling

Recycling

Magnetic Products, Inc. designs, engineers and builds a variety of equipment for the recycling industry including Eddy current separator, Drum magnets, Cross belt separators, Suspended magnetic separators , Separation rolls, magnetic belt feeders and Metal detectors. By continually developing inventive solutions to the challenges faced by recyclers, MPI is among the leaders in the manufacture of Eddy Current Separators and heavy duty Magnetic Separators. MPI will partner with you to evaluate your application and offer recommendations to meet your operational, environmental and financial goals.

With nearly 30 years of experience in the recycling industry, Magnetic Products, Inc. (MPI) offers the expertise, know-how and equipment needed to maximize your recycling processes. MPI offers a variety of "best in class" solutions, including free testing for eddy current applications. MPI knows that better separation equipment means higher profitability and less downtime for its customers.

 

MPI recently designed, built and shipped a Metal Detection system used to separate ferrous and non-ferrous metals from ceramic materials salvaged in automotive catalytic converters. The system consists of a Cross Belt Separator which is suspended above a moving bed of material from which the metals are to be removed. Material is then conveyed by a Magnetic Belt Feeder to further separate these metals from commingled material. From there, material travels down a Belt Conveyor with an integrated Metal Detector that provides the signal required to reject the non-ferrous contaminated materials.

Forestry

Forestry

The forestry industry faces a number of unique challenges. Whether running a sawmill, an engineered wood plant or a paper and pulp factory, the cost of operation is enormous and profit lies in producing the best product without downtime or wasted resources. MPI’s line of metal detectors and magnetic separators, including Suspended permanent magnets, Separation Rolls/Magnetic Pulleys and Drum magnets, keeps your processing equipment safe from damage and your product free from metal contaminants. Protecting your equipment from metal contamination means less downtime, higher production and fewer expensive repairs.

MPI offers a number of unique Cassel metal detectors to the forestry industry, including the three-sided VT/ST metal detector and the Whole log metal detector with its exclusive round aperture. Cassel's exclusive four-quadrant technology is considered the world standard by global designers of engineered wood plants.

Pharmaceuticals and Chemical Processing

Pharmaceuticals & Chemical Processing

Magnetic separators are installed in any product line where ferrous contaminants must be removed to ensure and protect product purity, prevent damage to machinery, and eliminate hazards associated with tramp metals. As the name implies, magnetic separators use high-strength magnets to attract, capture and retain ferrous metal. Although the product is fairly clean when it gets to the secondary production processes, minute particles of tramp metals may still exist and could make their way into the final product. The use of a metal detector can mitigate this risk.

The pharmaceutical industry faces an ever-growing list of stringent requirements to ensure public safety. When used in tandem, MPI magnetic separators and Cassel metal detectors mitigate the risk of metal contaminants making their way into the final product. Aware of the complexities of this industry, MPI and Cassel engineer and build equipment specifically designed to fulfill the parameters of the pharmaceutical industry such as high-sensitivity metal detectors, powerful high gauss magnets, sanitary finishes, special coatings, stainless steel enclosures, special seals (to meet IP66 and IP67 standards) and maintenance-free designs. 

MPI offers a full line of Metal detectors and magnetic separators to the pharmaceutical and chemical processing industries including Drawer magnets, Drum magnets, Free-flow magnets, Grates and tube magnets, Plate magnets, Magnetic chutes, Magnetic hump magnets and Magnetic rotary feeders.

Textiles

Textiles

MPI offers a wide range of magnetic separators and metal detectors to the textile industry including Drawer magnets, Drum magnets, Free-flow magnets, Grates and tube magnets, Magnetic chutes, Magnetic rotary feeders, Plate magnets, Separation rolls and Suspended magnets. Especially well-suited to the textile industry is MPI's exclusive METAL SHARK® COMBI, a high sensitivity metal detector that reliably and consistently senses fine metal particles (FE 0.5 mm) over wide widths (3 ft. - 26.6 ft.) of the belt or product. The COMBI is your solution whenever you have a product where small metal contaminants are an issue. The COMBI is the "absolute, hands-down, best solution" whenever you need to know the location of the metal with a high degree of accuracy across the product width.

Plastics

Plastics

A variety of unwanted items, such as metal, wood or glass, can find their way into the manufacturing process in a host of industries including plastics. Some contaminants occur as a result of processing, while others are simply inherent to the product itself. Although the source of tramp metals must be found and eliminated, the most important job of production personnel is to implement safeguards that capture and remove contaminants before they pollute final products or damage other equipment. Various types of equipment are used to capture tramp metals, including magnetic separators and metal detectors.

MPI is proud to offer a wide variety of magnetic separators and Metal detectors to the plastics industry including Drawer magnets, Grates and tube magnets, Inline magnetic tubes and Pneumatic line magnets.
