  • EZ-Tec 9100 detects and removes any ferrous, nonferrous and stainless steel particles
  • System removes particles greater than 0.5mm sphere

Petlon Polymer is a leading manufacturer of engineering polymers and offers a wide range of prime, recovered (R-Prime) and recycled materials. The plastic waste is collected, shredded, granulated and then used as a base feedstock in the manufacture of high end quality engineering compounds. Now the company is investing in its production lines by upgrading their metal detection and separation equipment with the EZ-Tec 9100, developed and manufactured by UK-based manufacturer Eriez Magnetics Europe Ltd. The EZ-Tec 9100 all metal separators from Eriez are being installed at critical stages of the process to ensure metal free end product quality.

System removes ferrous, nonferrous and stainless steel particles greater than 0.5mm sphere

The EZ-Tec 9100 is a vital part of the process, removing metals in order to protect expensive machinery and ensuring all finished products are free from any metal fragments. The result is a high quality finished product. The EZ-Tec 9100 is a high sensitivity all metal balanced coil technology metal separator, equipped with a quick acting pneumatic reject mechanism. The model installed on Petlon’s production lines detects and removes any ferrous, nonferrous and stainless steel particles greater than 0.5mm sphere. Petlon is upgrading the equipment at different stage in the production flow, where it is used for improved pre-screening as well as ensuring the high quality of the final products. Easily retro-fitted, this compact metal separator is designed for installation in free fall or gravity-fed applications and can be used as a stand-alone unit or installed in line with the process flow.

Metal separator with a specially-designed reject flap

“Due to the potential of metal components in the raw material, protection of equipment is vital and the EZ-Tec 9100 enables this at a competitive price. Working together with Eriez has enabled us to develop an upgraded metal separator with a specially-designed reject flap which has a longer life and significantly reduces overall repair costs, and down time”, according to Gavin Rees, Managing Director at Petlon Polymers.
