Upgrades to Eriez’ pull test kit include a more compact case design with separate compartments for better organization and storage, updated literature, and the option of a digital or mechanical scale.

The digital scale with traceable calibration certification (P/N 201512425G2)—which is also available independently of the kit—is best suited for customers in food, pharmaceutical, and related industries that require calibrated scale certification for auditor purposes. The mechanical scale (P/N 107121E) is offered for customers with less stringent requirements.

Permanent magnetic separators help draw out fine tramp metal along critical points of the production line. It is important to test the holding force of these magnets periodically. In addition to either a mechanical or digital scale, all Eriez pull test kits include all necessary tools and materials as well as clear, easy-to-follow instructions to enable users to conduct a proper and valid pull test.

The included literature lists pull test measurement guidelines for specific Eriez magnetic separator models. “While we use the pull test kit as a quality control device, we list typical pull test values to guide you in your inspection,” said Eric Confer, product manager-separation. “Pull test values can and will vary among separators due to a variety of magnet options. We suggest you use the kit not to verify the values listed, but to monitor your separator’s performance over time. Record the pull test results of your periodic inspections to evaluate any changes in magnetic performance.”
