Safely Remove Metals During Food Processing
With over 60 years of experience in the industry of manufacturing magnetic technologies for the food industry, you can rely on incomparable dependability, customer service and, most importantly, quality. Bunting® is dedicated to seeking out new ways to help food manufacturers streamline their facilities.
The Food Industry specifically uses Bunting® Magnetic Separation Systems, Material Handling Equipment, Metal Detection Equipment, Magnetic Cylinders, Bonded Magnets, and Assemblies. Our products can help you remove and transport the metals out of bakery goods, fruits, vegetables, meat, poultry, cooking oil and various other solid and liquid food products. Below you will see how we use different products in order to make your plant safer and more efficient.

Metal Detection for Food Contaminants
The most common of foreign material within food processing is metal. This contamination can cause damage to further processing equipment but more importantly, is a safety hazard for consumers. Metal contamination that makes it into the food supply can cause untold brand and reputation damage to the supplier.
Metal Detectors sense and remove the presence of ferrous, nonferrous and stainless metals in a process flow, or as a packaged item. All food-grade (or higher) come standard with Metal-Detectable Gaskets & Grommets for an added layer of product safety and brand protection.
Magnetic Cylinders for Food Label Printing
Producing a wide variety of magnetic cylinders including magnetic die cutting cylinders, two-piece can printing cylinders, plastic decorating cylinders, and corrugated carton printing cylinders; our magnetic cylinders can be used to print on food containers or cans with ease. We have invested in state-of-the-art precision machinery to manufacture our magnetic cylinders to meet or exceed OEM specifications.
Magnetic Separation & Material Handling Conveyors
We manufacture an extensive line of magnetic separation equipment to remove metal contaminants from dry particulates, liquids, and slurries. Our lineup includes units designed to remove metal contamination from gravity, mechanical, or pneumatic conveying systems.
Our magnetic conveyors can help maintain a steady, uninterrupted flow of material and product often at higher rates than are practical with non-magnetic units. If your plant does not require magnetic conveyors, we also manufacture nonmagnetic models that have the same well designed features, engineer support, and superior durability as our magnetic conveyors.

Metal Detector Checkweigher Combo
Fully integrated metal detector and weighing unit for the packaging of products. Having a combination unit, with one common interface, resolves having separate machines with separate controls to perform required inspections.
meTRON™ 07 CI Metal Detector with Bulk Sense Kit
Accurately detects metal in 50lb-100lb bags of dry product such as large bags of flour, powder, and other dry bulk products.
Corrosive Resistant Magnetic Liquid Trap
The CR-MLT offers high separation capabilities combined with exceptional resistance to corrosion, providing a solution for customers in a wide range of industries who are handling corrosive and acidic materials.
HF Drawer Magnets
HF Drawer Magnets are for gravity flow applications. They house two or more magnetic cartridges for efficient product separation. For all industries – Food, Grain and Milling, Powder and Bulk, Recycling, and Plastics.
Magnetic Liquid Traps
Magnetic Liquid Traps remove ferrous tramp including 400 series stainless steel and work-hardened stainless steel from liquid processing and conveying lines. Comes in several styles of traps with High-energy, temperature compensated Neodymium Magnets. Metal Detectable gaskets are standard. For the Food Industries.
In-Line Magnets are for Gravity or Pneumatic flow applications. Enclosed pipe systems for unobstructed product flow. Rare Earth Magnets are standard. For all industries.
Pneumatic Style Metal Separators
These metal separators detect and reject all metal types in enclosed pipe systems. Easy operation, fast-acting reject flap, and maintenance-free.
Permanent Drum Magnets
Permanent drum magnets are versatile, robust magnetic separators that are well suited to a wide range of applications, including those in the food, plastics, powder and bulk, grain and milling, and metal recycling industries.
Plate Magnets capture fine metal particles from chutes, suspended in powdery, moist, clumpy, abrasive or bulk materials. Various models available. For all industries including, Food, Powder & Bulk, Grain & Milling, Recycling and Plastics.
Magnetic Cartridges & Grate Magnets
Grate Magnets and Magnetic Cartridges are engineered to achieve balance between reach-out and holding force. Can be used in all industries.
Magnetic Pull Test Kits
These test kits has been developed for the purpose of field inspection, measurement and performance analysis of permanent magnetic separation equipment to guard against a lapse in magnetic protection.
Tunnel Style Metal Detectors with Conveyors
Tunnel style metal detectors can be used to inspect raw foods or for final inspection in a packaging line, to make sure their is no metal in the product before shipping to the customer.
Gravity Free-Fall Style Metal Detectors
Metal Detectors that are used to detect ferrous and non-ferrous metals as they pass through a detector in gravity free-fall applications.
Gravity Free-Fall Metal Separators – Food, Powder & Bulk
Automatically detects and rejects ferrous and nonferrous contaminants from product flow, safely and efficiently.
Pipeline Style Metal Separators
In our pipeline series, we have two styles, the pipeLINE™ system is used for liquids or pastes in pressure conveying lines. The meatLINE™ system is also used for liquids or pastes but it uses simple integration with a vacuum filter.
Washdown Can Conveyors
Move and control full and empty cans safely and efficiently, without can damage. For high capacity systems in a wet or washdown environment.
Adjustable Magnetic Upstacking Pulleys use VFD variable speed drive motors to fan, stabilize, control and feed lids into sleeves or feeding machines. For use in the Canning Industry.
Pharmaceutical Metal Detector
Our metal detector for the pharmaceutical industry inspects pills and capsules with ultra-fast processing, fast cleaning and sanitizing, with easy maintenance.
Offering superior continuous removal and discharging of ferrous contamination like nails, staples, bolts, and wire from conveyors, all with maintenance free operation.
Wedge Magnets are designed for narrow chutes and protect against tramp metal damage for pellet mills. Shape diverts product flow across collection surfaces. For all industries.
Metal Detector Test Standards
They are an easy and economical way to maintain consistent operation and product quality. We offer precision test blocks and ball bearings for metal detector calibration and performance checks.
Mattop Belted Conveyors
Usually designed for specific applications where the smooth top surface of a mattop belt has advantages over a fabric belted conveyor. Mattop belted conveyors are easier to slide parts across the belt and are better for accumulation applications.
Magnetic Plate Rails
Used in horizontal and inclined fabric and mattop belted conveyors in wet wash-down applications. Built with the strongest magnetic rails in the industry. Our engineers are here to help you pick the right magnetic rail for your application.
