When it comes to the cleaning operation, magnetic separators can be distinguished into two main categories: 1.Self-cleaning separators (also known as 'auto-clean magnetic separators'), and 2.Manual clean separators. While manual-clean magnets may be less expensive in the short-term, to many food processing companies this is far outweighed by the advantages...
Recontaminion of product streams, shorting out of magnets, and demagnetisation are serious risks to food safety. Learn the importance of frequently monitoring & cleaning magnetic separators in this helpful article.
It would be ideal if 100% magnetic separation could be guaranteed but, although aimed for, unfortunately, there are several reasons why this is practically not feasible. We unpack these reasons in this article.
