Gravity Free-Fall Style Metal Separators – Recycling and Plastics

Separate Metal in Gravity Free-Fall Applications

Gravity Free-Fall Style Metal Separators automatically detect all ferrous and non-ferrous metals without process interruptions by separating contaminated materials from product flow. For HACCP safety, this detector is an efficient Critical Control Point (CCP) when detecting metal in any free-falling product. The products below can be used in the Recycling and Plastics Industries.

QuickTron Blue-Gravity Free-Fall Style Metal Separators-Bunting-Magnetic SeparationquickTRON™ 03R

Low-cost triple-coil separator offers superior sensitivity, simplicity, and reliability. Specifically designed for use in plastics and recycling industries.

The quickTRON™ 03R is designed for demanding plastics applications. It features:
•    Economical, compact design
•    Detects and rejects small fine materials
•    Accurate even with abrasive products
•    Recommended wherever removal of fines is critical
•    Housing Controls are contained

QuickTRON™ 03R units provide consistent performance in demanding applications. High-speed stainless steel reject mechanics allow for compact design. This advanced transmitter/receiver detection system comes in a money-saving package. Units are fully self-monitoring. Integral brackets simplify mounting.

HS 9050/9100

HS9100-Gravity Free-Fall Style Metal Separators-Bunting-Magnetic SeparationEntry-level, economical HS Separators pneumatically reject isolated metal debris from powders, granules, and other bulk materials. The HS Metal Detector is designed for all Gravity-Fed applications in Plastics and Recycling. It features:

•    Economical, compact, and versatile
•    Fully self-monitoring
•    Adjustable sensitivity and rejection
•    Low-maintenance operation

HS Detectors have a single electronics board enclosed in a dust-tight steel housing and feature single-coil detection. Air-powered stainless steel flap offers rapid rejection cycling for cleaner results. HS Detectors monitor their sensors, mechanical function, voltage, and air pressure.


Machine Mounted All-Metal Separators (MMS)

mms-Gravity Free-Fall Style Metal Separators-Bunting-Magnetic SeparationDesigned to be a last chance metal separator to be mounted on an injection molding machine or extruder in the Plastics industry. Provides efficient rejection of both ferrous and nonferrous metal contaminants.

•    Designed especially for choke-feed applications
•    Can be bolted directly to the in-feed of processing equipment and support the weight of hoppers and bins.
•    Fast pneumatic rejection mechanism aided by precise timing results in accurate cycling and conservation of good material. Slide gate rejection design eliminates contamination “leaks”.
•    Hi-Temp version available for use where the product is at a higher than normal temperature. Handles temperatures up to 350°.
