Eriez® Designates Eco-Certification for Magnetic Separators, including Plate and Grate Magnets and Liquid Line Magnetic Traps

Press Release:
  May 31, 2011 — Erie, PA --- Demonstrating its commitment for a better, cleaner environment, Eriez® has developed an eco-certification designation for a variety of its magnetic separation products, including the entire line of Plate and Grate Magnets and Liquid Line Traps. The designation also extends to the company’s line of ProGrade® Magnetic Separators.

Eriez Plates, Grates and Liquid Line Traps have met several criteria established by Eriez for the Eco-Certified designation:

• Plates, Grates and Liquid Line Traps have a positive impact on recycling processes and the recycling industry
• They are manufactured with energy-savings features, including the use of energy-free permanent magnets
• Eriez’ line of Plates, Grates and Liquid Line Traps are built in an Eriez facility that focuses on recycling consumables, driving down energy usage and drastically reducing solid landfill waste
• An electronic, paperless format is used when promoting these magnetic separation products; when marketed using hard copy, promotional material is printed on recycled paper

Eriez has incorporated a completely digital workflow, both internally and externally, to reduce its dependence on paper. Customers can now access product information via the Eriez Web site at and print only what they need, including specs and details about the company’s line of magnetic separators.

Eriez’ Plate Magnets are available in five magnetic strengths and are typically installed in chutes, feed tables and over conveyor belts to remove damaging tramp metal from product flows. Plate Magnets range in size from 4 inches (102 mm) on up and come in many different configurations, some of which include sanitary construction, milled 400 series stainless steel tapered steps and removable face plates.

Grate Magnets remove metal contamination from dry free flowing powders or granules and are designed for simple installation in steep-sloped hoppers, odd and irregular-shaped hoppers, floor openings, vertical closed chutes and ducts. Eriez’ Grate Magnets are available with Xtreme® Rare Earth models, including drawer and wing-type grates, Easy to Clean Grates in Housing and Rota-Grates.

Liquid Line Magnetic Traps filter out ferrous contamination from products traveling through pipelines as small as 2 inches (51 mm) in diameter up to pipelines measuring 24 inches (610 mm) in diameter. Eriez Traps handle material with temperatures up to 150 degrees F (65 degrees C) with special models available for temperatures up to 850 degrees F (454 degrees C).

The company’s magnetic lift and separation, metal detection, x-ray, materials feeding, screening, conveying and controlling equipment have application in the process, metalworking, packaging, recycling, mining, aggregate and textile industries.
