Despite this application, the bespoke design can be adapted to apply to many other industries and this project is an example of the effectiveness of such innovation. The installation of this metal detector has facilitated the extraction of metal contaminants from their process line; which in turn protects the machinery, saving time and resources, alongside the immeasurable value of a higher quality end-product.
Eriez Europe was selected to commission a detector that fit these specialised requirements. Additionally, the glass production was monitored on site by Eriez representatives to ensure the most effective design was implemented. Eriez Europe was confident to present the E-Z Tec 9000 R Metal Detector, in combination with the Pneumatic Reject System, as the most practical solution as it excelled the detection requirement needed with its capacity for a high level of sensitivity and detection of small contamination. Providing the E-Z Tec 9000 R with the Pneumatic Reject System on the conveyor specifically allows for the process to be continuous. The system supplied is a complete modular solution; working in line with the current glass processing applications on site. The installation will therefore not disrupt any current processing practices.
When asked about this opportunity to supply a bespoke E-Z Tec 9000 R, Paul Hale, Metal Detection Sales Manager, commented “We were delighted upon receiving the enquiry and excited to get to work. The E-Z Tec 9000 R is ideal for glass processing as it will provide high levels of sensitivity and has the capacity to detect small levels of contamination. The added element of the pneumatic reject system on the conveyor will guarantee a continuous process, eliminating any stoppages”.
However, this has not been the only recent success with the E-Z Tec 9000. The smaller E-Z Tec 9000 RD model, albeit still boasting the same detection capabilities, was supplied to detect metal contaminants in the recycling of PVC window frames.
