IMI Introduces Antimicrobial Surface Treatment for Magnetic Separators

Industrial Magnetics Inc., a manufacturer of magnetic separation devices, is offering a new antimicrobial surface treatment that can be applied to its line of magnetic separators for the food processing and pharmaceutical industries, helping to improve sanitation and production efficiency. 

Created by General Magnaplate, MAGnanoSHIELD is a new, FDA-compliant, antimicrobial coating technology that offers 99.9999% microbe resistance to bacteria and fungus strains such as staphylococcus aureus, E. coli, L. monoctyogenes, Gliocladium virens, Aspergillus niger, Penicillium pinophilum, Chaetomium globosum, and Aureobasidium pollulans.

This comprehensive coating technology helps equipment stay clean and safe between sanitation cycles, while increasing production efficiency by requiring less maintenance downtime, chemical cleaning agents, and water usage. 

Because MAGnanoSHIELD is incorporated into Magnaplate's existing wear-resistant coatings, a single coating can be specified that not only resists microbe growth, but also provides protection against friction, wear, moisture, chemical exposure, and more.
