Metal separator

December 5, 2012
metal separator eriez model ff4Eriez’s Model FF4 metal separator is used to inspect dry bulk products under gravity free-fall conditions, and works in other food industry applications where high sensitivity is required. The separator detects all ferrous and nonferrous metal contamination (i.e., steel, aluminum, brass, stainless steel)—even when enclosed in the product. Metal contaminants are rejected through the separator’s Quick Flap reject unit. The unit features separate detection and reject valves; the position of the reject outlet can be adjusted to match the collection drum or container. The separator has a low vertical height, enabling an easy fit into existing gravity pipeline systems. The separators are available in 6 standard pipe sizes: 3.15 in. (80mm), 3.94 in. (100mm), 4.72 in. (120mm), 5.9 in. (150mm), 7.87 in. (200mm) and 9.84 in. (250mm). A variety of options and accessories is available.
