Serpent and Dove introduces Econo-Grate magnets for food, chemical and plastics industries to recover iron contamination from products. For the food industry food grade construction is made available for Econo-Grate magnets.
Processors are surprised at the amount of iron contamination found in products ranging from refined sugar to grain, flour, chemical powders and granulated plastics. It finds its way there from many sources, including trucks, chutes, maintenance operations, attrition from grinding operations and it varies from welding rod ends to staples, nuts, bolts, nails and fine iron.
Removal is dictated by the need to protect the customer as well as the need to protect valuable equipment. Processors today ensure first that their incoming raw materials are passed over suitable magnets, then that their grinding, cutting or moulding equipment is protected and finally that their outgoing product is free from iron contamination.
