As customers face increasingly stringent product-safety standards, MPE has sought to provide a better way to prevent both ferrous and nonferrous metals from contaminating final product. The Pro-Tector efficiently combines the simplicity of a magnetic separator with the reliability of a metal detector in one compact unit. This new system assures the quick, easy removal of metals from product stream, while its size accommodates the tight spaces commonly found in production facilities. Designed for use in gravity-feed pipes to monitor for metal contaminants in continuous-flowing granules or powders such as sugar, flour, corn meal, or spices, the Pro-Tector’s integrated drawer magnet provides maximum magnetic separation of contaminants. Product first flows through the drawer magnet, which is located at the top of the unit, and then ferrous-free product continues through a gravity-feed metal detector. The Pro-Tector’s integrated drawer magnet employs twin layers of rare-earth magnetic tubes to provide maximum magnetic separation of metal contaminants, and its quick-clean feature allows the operator to clean the unit in less than 10 seconds.
