RAPID 8000 Metal Detector
Metal detector for gravity free-fall applications
Automated cleaning magnetic separator for 24/7 processing
Overview - Auto-Shuttle Magnetic Separator
The Auto-Shuttle magnetic separator can carry out a full clean without the need to stop the process. The magnetic separation unit is supplied with a pre-programmed PLC that can either work independently or connected to the central control rooms system for remote activation or monitoring.
Reed switches are fitted to each end of the separator tubes to indicate the position of each magnetic core. The full system remains air tight throughout normal operation making it suitable for environments where ATEX equipment is required.
Also available are the Auto-Shuttle Double Row, Triple Row & Quadruple Row for higher intensity magnetic separation.
The magnetic cores remain in the process chamber until a cleaning signal is given. Then, compressed air is fed into each separator tube forcing the core to the other end of the unit. The contamination follows the core, which first passes through the product return chamber to prevent the loss of good product, and into the cleaning chamber where the collected contamination is deposited. The cleaning chamber is fitted with a transition piece, which allows a collection container to be fitted. It is this container that is removed to assess the collected contamination.
