Eriez® Model CF Metal Separators Remove the Smallest Metal Contaminants to Reduce Machinery Downtime and Repair Costs

Press Release:
  Sep 13, 2013 — Erie, PA —The Eriez® Model CF Metal Separator is an excellent tool for detecting and removing the smallest metal particles from regrind and virgin material. Through a reduction in machinery downtime and expensive repairs, the Model CF Metal Separator provides a prompt return on investment.

The Model CF Metal Separator is installed directly above the material feed of an extruder, injection molding or blow molding machine. The innovative design of the Model CF Metal Separator enables exceptional operational reliability, even at high throughputs. With slight modifications, these metal separators can also be used in free-fall applications.

“Even the smallest metal particles in molten plastic can cause expensive and time-consuming damage to your machinery,” says John Collins, Manager--Plastics and PolyMag®. “As the use of plastic regrind increases, so does the probability of metal contamination causing blockages in nozzles and valve gates, resulting in downtime, shipment delays and product contamination.” He adds, “When you consider that the cost of repairing a screw or barrel damaged by one larger piece of metal is several times more costly than the price of a Model CF Metal Separator, it’s an incredibly wise investment.”

Additional highlights of the Model CF Metal Separator include:

• Maximum resistance to interference

• Automatic self-calibration and ongoing self-monitoring and temperature adjustment

• Fully automatic process with customizable scanning sensitivity and reject duration

• Optional loaders, bleeders and hoppers can be attached to the detection and separation unit
