In plastics processing, environmental awareness and economic considerations have resulted in the use of industry-quality granulate (regenerated material, ground material) which frequently shows a slight contamination with foreign objects such as metal particles. Depending on the production system this may soon cause unwanted machine downtimes.
Especially for the plastics industry S+S now offers a system combination that combines the advantages of magnet separators and inductive metal separators. This combination is the optimal solution for the separation of both magnetic and non-magnetic metal contaminations.
The combination of SAFEMAG and PROTECTOR prevents mould damage and reduces reject rates, thereby increasing machine running times. The loss of good material is also reduced to a minimum. In the first stage the SAFEMAG, with the extremely high forces of its neodymium magnet material, even removes iron powder and slightly-magnetised stainless steel particles from the product flow. It reduces the response frequency of the PROTECTOR and consequently also the loss of good material. Downstream of the SAFEMAG, the PROTECTOR reliably detects and separates all the remaining non-magnetic metals.
