Magnetic Separation and Metal Detection for Plastics Industry
Our range of Metal Separation and Detection systems has been developed to increase efficiency by protecting expensive process machinery from potentially damaging metal contamination, thereby reducing breakdowns and increasing productivity. They are used in either virgin or recycling processes to protect equipment such as injection or blow moulding tooling, grinders, extruders, nozzles, mixers and rollers from ferrous objects such as nails, screws, metal closures or fine particles created by process wear.
Metal Separation and Detection systems are a key component in ensuring that the finished product meets required quality standards. Fine particle metal contamination can reduce the quality of virgin or recycled materials and finished products. Larger metal-based items can cause blockages which have an adverse effect on the final injection process, thereby reducing end product quality.

Housed Easy Clean Grid
Our cost-effective high intensity easy clean housed grids can be installed easily into gravity feed lines. Ideal for powders and granulate the unit contains one or more easy clean magnetic grids secured by tri-cone locking nuts in a removeable housing.
The modular unit can be supplied to be compatible with either square or round connections. It features the easy clean design which ensures cleaning can be done in minutes with minimal disruption to the process. By removing the magnetic cores from the housing the attracted contamination simply falls away and the core can be re-inserted thereby minimising downtime
Easy Clean Grid Magnet or Fixed option / Hopper Guards
Our high intensity magnetic grids are available in easy clean or fixed options. They can be used in most powder or granulate applications to remove ferrous and para-magnetic contamination, including sub-micron sized particles. The units can be manufactured to any size with any number of rods. It’s low profile means it can be installed in existing chute work or machinery with minimal disruption. We also offer a range of hopper guards to separate metal from polymers and avoid damage to nozzles and hot-runners.
The Housed Underflow magnetic separator can be incorporated into any form of angled pipe or gravity feed chute section. It is designed to operate in arduous conditions, where contamination size is relatively large such as nuts, bolts, wire closures.
The Chute Magnetic separator has been designed to operate in arduous conditions to capture primary contamination such as wire, nuts and bolts. A central diverter directs processed product towards the magnet packs which ensures ferrous contamination is removed from the process. The Chute Magnet separator can be installed into any vertical or angled chute or pipework. It also features an “easy clean” quick release system.
The Bullet Magnet is ideal for removing tramp ferrous metals from gravity or pneumatically conveyed feed systems. A high intensity magnetic bullet element is centrally mounted within a stainless steel housing, the design ensures that product flow is unaffected.
