Metal separators and magnet systems for installation upstream of injection moulding machines for "Last-Chance" metal detection is being introduced by S+S Separation and Sorting Technology GmbH. The metal separators are from the PROTECTOR family. The highlight is the new PROTECTOR-MF combining the proven advantages of its predecessor, the MFE, with new performance features. Whilst retaining the excellent sensitivity and performance of the MFE, the new system requires less height above moulder and all parts in contact with the product are made of stainless steel.
These units are installed directly on the infeed of injection moulding machines and separate metal particles from a slow moving column of material. Whether in primary or secondary feed processes, all metals are effectively removed and PROTECTOR systems provide maximum machine protection and prevent screw crashes, choked nozzles, and mould damage. The compact but strong design means that mixing and dosing units can be installed directly on the system.
