Application Characteristics of Food Metal Separator

- Jun 24, 2019-

With the development of modern industry, more and more demands have been put forward for metal separators in all walks of life. Metal separator is an electronic instrument. It uses electromagnetic induction principle to detect metal, which can be divided into channel type, falling type and pipeline type. Conventional metal separators play an important role in separating machinery because of their simple structure and convenient maintenance.


In order to improve the performance of conventional metal separators, experts and scholars have designed and manufactured various types of metal separators over the years.

Free-fall and dump conveying: coarse grain (particle diameter > 6mm), flaky, fibrous, fragile, moist, fused

Transport devices: plastics industry, food industry, chemical industry, pharmaceutical industry, other industries

Typical scope of application: food industry: detection of popcorn, crisp corn chips, potato chips, nuts, fruits and soup noodles chemical industry: detection of mixtures

Metal separation systems are specially designed to meet stringent hygiene standards and are therefore particularly suitable for the food, chemical and pharmaceutical industries. Metal separation system can remove magnetic and non-magnetic impurities (steel, stainless steel, aluminium, etc.) from free-falling bulk materials by means of a cyclotron funnel without any interference to product treatment. This has been proved to be a highly effective method for the removal of impurities, especially in grains, light, fragile, fibrous and moist bulk materials.
