Eriez, Virto/Elcan Team Up for Improved Toll Processing and Testing Capabilities

Charlie Ingram, Eriez vice president of sales and marketing, and Bob Grotto, Virto/Elcan president, announced that Virto/Elcan has added an Eriez electromagnetic separator to its testing and toll processing line at the company’s Tuckahoe, NY facility.

“For more than a decade, customers have trusted Virto/Elcan to screen their materials on the world-renowned Virto/Elcan ScreenX multi-frequency screeners and Minox tumbler screeners,” said Grotto. “Now, they can benefit from the added separation capabilities the Eriez electromagnetic separator brings.”

Virto/Elcan’s extensive testing services give customers the ability to send their most challenging materials to verify the separation performance of the Virto/Elcan and/or Eriez equipment. Ingram explains, “While the technical center at Eriez world headquarters has more than 100 types of permanent magnetic, electromagnetic, vibratory, screening, and electronic metal detecting equipment on-hand for test runs, customers and potential customers can utilize the Virto/Elcan testing services to test the Eriez electromagnetic separator’s performance in conjunction with Virto/Elcan equipment.”

In addition to testing and machine sales, Virto/Elcan offers complete toll processing services. This is ideal for customers that have difficult-to-screen products that cannot be screened efficiently on conventional screeners. Customers can make extended runs of products to insure successful installations or run larger quantities to use as sample lots or boost their production. “The addition of the Eriez electromagnetic separator to Virto/Elcan’s toll processing line can further enhance the separation of even the most challenging materials,” says Grotto.

“This cooperative effort is a great example of how companies can come together to better serve their mutual customers,” says Ingram.

Grotto adds, “It’s truly a win-win situation. Our customers benefit from the improved testing and separation capabilities both companies can now offer. Plus, through this partnership, Virto/Elcan and Eriez have expanded our service offerings.”
