With over 40 years of experience Eriez Magnetics has fast become one of the leading suppliers of Magnetic Separation, Metal Detection, Sampling Equipment and Vibratory Equipment to a range of industries. Eriez Europe design and manufacture tailored solutions for each industry depending on its individual requirements, all of which abide to the rules and regulations of the Quality Management System ISO 9001. The range of products for the aggregates/quarrying industries presented at Hillhead 2012 include Metal Detectors (Fig.), Cross Belt Samplers, Suspended Permanent Magnets and Suspended Electromagnets.
Metal Detection Equipment is used to detect and extract any ferrous or non ferrous metals from materials or product in free-fall. This process helps protect valuable machinery whilst still increasing quality control. The PCB Cross Belt Sampler will obtain a random sample of granular material directly from a belt type conveyor. Due to the units single direction motion system it can move across a belt and sweep the content clean before depositing it into a fixed type collection chute located to the side of the belt conveyor. Suspended permanent magnets are positioned above moving conveyors in order to retrieve any metal containment from bulk product flow. Depending on the particular requirements of the process Eriez offer three permanent field configurations with various field strengths and depths. These are known as the CP, OP and TP. Eriez Suspended Electromagnets automatically remove tramp iron from flowing materials on conveyors or chutes. This unit is available in both manual clean or self clean options.
