Eriez High Sensitivity Metal Detector to make debut outside of UK at POWTECH 2019

Metal contamination can have a critical effect on processing lines. Unwanted metals not only result in costly damage to machinery, loss of productivity and downtime but can also impact a company’s reputation on product quality.

Eriez Europe will be at POWTECH 2019 in Nuremberg from the 9th to 11th of April, showcasing a range of their magnetic separation, metal detection and vibratory feeder solutions for improved and efficient metal removal and product purity used across various bulk handling industries, including food, minerals, chemicals and pharmaceuticals.

Visitors to stand 3-409, hall 3 will have an exclusive first-look outside of the U.K. of the Xtreme® Metal Detector, the newest model in the company’s extensive metal detector product range. This feature-rich, multi-frequency unit is designed to achieve the highest levels of sensitivity to detect metal contaminants as small as 0.4mm spheres in packaged, loose and free-fall applications.

The Xtreme Metal Detector surpasses previous units and competitive models alike with enhanced features, improved sensitivity, intuitive operation and exceptional reliability.

As the world-leading trade fair for processing, analysis, and handling of powder and bulk solids, Eriez Europe will also be exhibiting grate magnets and magnetic traps from their extensive range of magnetic separators, ideal for the removal of small, fine tramp iron from dry, free-flowing products and providing protection for processing equipment. For accurate materials handling, including light and difficult to feed materials, Eriez will be showcasing their dual drive electromagnetic vibratory feeder.

Speaking about the Xtreme Metal Detector Paul Hale, Metal Detection Sales Manager at Eriez Europe comments, “POWTECH is the ideal opportunity to showcase the capabilities of the Xtreme Metal Detector with demonstrations on the unit taking place throughout the show. We gathered crucial information from our customers about what they want and need in metal detection equipment in the powder and bulk solids industries and have made important product developments in our metal detection range. In addition to the Xtreme Metal Detector, our MetAlarm EX range for ATEX 21 and ATEX 22 dust zones provides a fully certified solution for customers looking to be alerted to the presence of metals in order to reduce the risk of explosions within their plants.”
