Product category: Metal separators

Metal Detectors

The most common of foreign material within processing is metal.

Bunting® Metal Detectors sense and remove the presence of ferrous, non-ferrous and stainless metals in the process flow. These units also find metal encapsulated in the individual particle.

Successful detection and separation of metal will protect your processing equipment from damage, which saves your organization money and down time.

Innovative Triple Coil Design
Bunting Metal Detectors utilize triple coil design for the search head. This is comprised of windings around an aperture opening, whether round, or rectangular. There is a transmitter in the center, and two receivers (one at entrance of the search head, and one at the exit). Within the aperture opening, an electromagnetic field is created. When a piece of metal passes through the coil opening, a signal is generated and calculated at each and activates further operations or devices.

Magnetic Separators

Permanent protection for your products and equipment.

Bunting® Magnetics Co. manufactures an extensive line of magnetic separation equipment to remove ferrous contaminants from dry particulates, liquids, and slurries. We supply everything from basic cartridges, grates, and plate magnets to magnet housings, self-cleaning separators, pulleys, and drums.

Our magnetic separators work individually or in tandem to remove ferrous metal debris from gravity, mechanical, or pneumatic conveying systems.

Stainless Steel Separator - High Intensity Separation Conveyor HISC

High Intensity Separator Conveyor

Intended Applications: Magnetic separation of small work hardened 300 Stainless Steel and para-magnetic chips

The High Intensity Separation Conveyors (HISC) from Bunting Magnetics are very powerful and are ideal for a range of recycling industries such as plastics, electronics and automotive. They have been specifically designed to separate things like small work hardened 300 stainless steel and para-magnetic pieces from auto steel fraction that has been shredded as well as materials from ground plastic. The industry as a whole is very excited about this piece of equipment because the kind of metal and material separation that was nigh on impossible to achieve until recently, is now made possible and a new level of product purity is attainable thanks to the extremely powerful magnetic separation conveyor.

Through the use of Magnetic Finite Element Design software, the engineers at Bunting have been able to optimise the magnetic field strength to produce some of the highest surface gauss intensities in the wider industry. Although the field height is fairly low, the design allows for very strong fields which will attract, hold and extract materials with even very weak magnetic materials such as small screws found inside scrapped computers, stainless steel razor blades, chips that might be attached to green boards and stainless steel sheet metal found on hard drives. The high intensity separator conveyor is also very useful for picking up and separating stainless steel from shredded automotive parts and machinery.

Eddy Current Separators

Bunting Magnetics Europe Ltd offers a range of the most highly engineered eddy current separators on the market. Supplied as standard with variable speed controls the motors and our own Finite Element Designed magnetic system that allows one unit to remove both very small flake in the plastic recycling industry up to large pieces of non-ferrous materials. The high quality of components used and the innovative design mean high performance, low maintenance and fast belt changes.

Solving the Problem of Metal Contamination at the K Plastics Show

Metal Separation Equipment will be displayed by Bunting Magnetics Europe in Hall 10 on stand G16 at the International Plastics and Rubber trade fair, K 2016 (19th – 26th October 2016 Dusseldorf, Germany.

Bunting Magnetics is one of the world’s leading suppliers of Magnetic Separators and Metal Detectors to the Plastics and Rubber industries, with the Global headquarters in Newton, Kansas, USA and the European manufacturing headquarters in Berkhamsted in Hertfordshire, UK.

On stand G16 at K 2016, Bunting will be displaying a range of Metal Separation equipment including Magnetic Separators and Metal Detectors.  Metal contamination is a common problem within the Plastics and Rubber industries, causing product defects and damaging processing equipment.  The type of metal can range from small fine metal to larger screws or nuts and bolts.  Effective removal is essential and achieved by using the right Metal Separation equipment installed in the correct location.

“On our stand at K 2016, we want to show visitors the effectiveness of our Magnetic Separators and Metal Detectors in removing metal from the plastics and rubber production process,” explained Dave Hills, Bunting’s Head of Sales.

Bunting will be displaying a working Metal Separator (a combination of a Drawer Magnet Grate following by a Metal Detector) and Quicktron Metal Detector.  Also on the stand will be production-sized examples of FF Drawer Magnets, Plate Magnets and Tube Magnets where customers can experience the strength of the magnetic force by attempting to pull steel bolts off the surface.

“When customers visit our stand we want to show them the separation capabilities of our equipment.  It is one thing to say a piece of ferrous or non-ferrous metal will be separated, but another to actually show it happening,” said Hills.

“We will be demonstrating the Metal Separator.  Metal contaminated plastic will be gravity fed into a feed hopper and immediately into a FF Drawer Magnet.  Here magnetic particles are captured before the remaining plastic falls into the Metal Detector which identifies and rejects any non-ferrous metals,” said Hills.

Hills is excited by the opportunities at the show.  “The K Show is the number one exhibition for the Plastics and Rubber industry in Europe and one of the premier events on the global calendar.  We [Bunting] have been helping the industry solve their metal contamination problems for decades.  Having a stand and demonstrating our Metal Separators is really important and we look forward to helping companies address the costly issue of metal contamination.”
