Magnattack™ Global High-Strength Magnetic Separation Equipment for Improving Metal Fragment Control and Food Safety

MAGNATTACK™ Global has expertise in the design, manufacture, and installation of magnetic separation equipment for metal fragment control. The company’s solutions help reduce product recalls, brand reputation damage and consumer health and safety threats.

MAGNATTACK™ focuses on the pharmaceutical, food and beverage industries, including the dairy, winery, milling, pet food, and meat rendering sectors.

The MAGNATTACK™ RE80™ equipment range is certified by HACCP International and fully conforms to the International Food Safety Standard 0909MAGSEP 1-2010 Final Magnetic Separation Devices for Removing Ferromagnetic and Weakly Ferromagnetic Particles from Food Product Streams. Selected models have been US Department of Agriculture (USDA) Dairy Accepted.

Magnetic elements for separation equipment

MAGNATTACK™ Global’s research and development (R&D) into magnetic separation equipment has led to the creation of its RE80™ and RE80™HT elements. These high-strength elements provide proven higher gauss strength and retention efficiency and are included in every piece of MAGNATTACK™ equipment.

The recent release of the MAGNATTACK™ DURA-SLIK™ anti-abrasion technology has proven effective in reducing rapid wear and damage to magnetic separation equipment. This type of wear is especially a concern in abrasive and sticky products such as grain, sugar, lactose, coffee, rice, meat meal, dry pet food and other similar foods.

DURA-SLIK™ technology can be applied to grate magnets, bar magnets, magnet probes and other magnet surfaces.

Magnets suited to your products and applications

MAGNATTACK™ Global’s magnets are available for a wide variety of products and applications. As these often overlap, the company views each application as an individual before making a recommendation.

The range of MAGNATTACK™ metal separation solutions includes the MAG-RAM™ self-cleaning grate magnet, RAPIDCLEAN™ grates in housing, magnets for gravity, blowline or vacuum installations, magnets for liquid and beverage lines, magnets for pet food and meat emulsion, magnets for milling, and winery magnets.

Self-cleaning separators for reduced cleaning schedules and downtime

Since the manufacture of MAGNATTACK™ Global’s MAG-RAM™ Automatic Self-Cleaning Magnet in 2008, this piece of equipment has been implemented across a wide variety of applications from meat and pet food to flour, dairy products and sensitive powders.

The self-cleaning feature is designed for hard-to-reach locations where it can be potentially dangerous for operators to clean. It also allows for reduced operator error and increased consistency for product lines that need constant cleaning.

Magnets for sensitive powder and dairy applications

MAGNATTACK™ Global’s recent USDA Dairy Acceptance on specially designed models means the company can provide highly hygienic metal fragment control solutions in sensitive applications.

Popular installations since this approval include milk and dairy products, infant formula, dairy powders, pharmaceutical powders and other sensitive powders.

MAGNATTACK™ Global provides a consistently high level of support throughout the quoting, manufacturing and magnet-operating stages. On-site training and assistance is available through MAGNATTACK™ Global’s sales engineers and technicians, as well as through its qualified service agents in New Zealand and North America.

Site manager at a Heinz manufacturing plant Rodney Cole said: “We certainly appreciate the fact that you responded so well to our concerns, that is great customer service. We would have no hesitation in purchasing further magnets for ourselves and recommending your business to others”.

Site visits, plant assessments, and magnet validations

In addition to single applications, MAGNATTACK™ Global also offers full plant assessments in regards to metal fragment control.

Magnet validations and reports are available via the fully HACCP International certified consulting agency Active Magnetics Research.

CJ Nutracon’s quality assurance manager Jennie Fraser said: “Kevin and his team not only provided prompt and reliable service but proved experts in the field, possessing the technical knowledge needed to offer useful advice on the most appropriate magnet selections for our application”.
