New design uses corrosive-resistant coating to avoid pitting and damage caused by acidic foods
NEWTON, KS – Bunting® Magnetics Co., the leader in moving, removing and holding metal, is introducing its newly designed magnetic liquid trap made specifically for the food processing industry. Manufactured from a single piece of corrosive-resistant material, the CR-MLT is used specifically in processing acidic foods, including tomatoes and citrus.
“We developed our corrosion resistant magnetic liquid trap because produce processors needed to replace their liquid traps more frequently,” said Rod Henricks, Director of Sales. “Over time, acidic foods and cleaning solutions cause pitting and other damage to the equipment, which means downtime during peak production time to replace parts.”

In addition to the corrosive-resistant material, the CR-MLT offers several features that produce processors desire. It has a high-pressure rating, which can handle a higher volume of product faster. Cleaning the CR-MLT couldn’t be easier; as you pull the cartridge, a gasket wipes it clean. Because it is made from a single piece of stainless steel, there are no welds and no crevices to corrode.
Under normal circumstances, 316L stainless steel has good corrosion resistance; however, when under strain and acidic environments, intergranular cracks occur. This compromises the integrity of the protective oxide film, which results in pitting and corrosion. With Bunting’s new super alloy material in the CR-MLT, it has a much higher corrosion resistance than 316L stainless steel. Acidic foods such as tomato paste, ketchup and vinegar-based products, as well as high temperature chloride-based cleaning agents, won’t cause pitting, crevice and stress corrosion.
Bunting is known to develop and use the highest power magnets it can in each of its applications, and the CR-MLT Magnetic Liquid Trap is no exception. The CR-MLT utilizes 45SH magnets – temperature-compensated, high-intensity, neodymium magnets – for superior capture of metal contamination.
No other competitor offers a similar product. “The CR-MLT was developed to answer the call of produce processors who wanted a better, safer, longer-lasting magnetic liquid trap,” said Henricks “Bunting Magnetics solves problems. We knew corrosion and pitting are significant issues in produce, especially tomatoes, and developed this solution.”
