Like metal detectors and various other food processing equipment, it is important that magnetic separators are tested regularly to determine if they are effective and providing adequate foreign metal fragment control. Which test is most effective - pull test or gauss test?

Reducing Metal Fragment Risk With HACCP Certified Magnet Validations
Magnets should be tested yearly in accordance with a HACCP International program and the current 0909MAGSEP 1-2010 Food Safety Standard to ensure they are within specification and, if identified, any causes of demagnetization or damage to the magnet are flagged and can then be corrected.
