Easily detect seal and gasket wear in conveying applications

By Chemical Engineering |

Industrial Magnetics

Industrial Magnetics

This company now offers metal-detectable (MD) and X-ray-inspectable (XRI) seal and gasket options on its magnetic separation equipment for gravity-fed and pneumatic-line conveying applications. The new seal and gasket options protect against elastomeric contamination in the processing line. Component parts can degrade over time due to low conductivity, and standard elastomeric material is often missed by even the most sensitive detection systems. The new offerings include the Detectomer line (photo) of Buna rubber seals and silicone gaskets, which all contain a select additive that can be spotted by metal detectors, X-ray systems and optical scanners, as well as be captured by magnetic separators. Available for products with 1- and 3-in. magnetic circuit configurations, the seals and gaskets are certified food-grade compliant, meeting the FDA Code of federal regulations for food safety. Users with existing magnetic separation equipment who wish to upgrade to the new MD/XRI seals and gaskets may also purchase a retrofit kit. — Industrial Magnetics, Inc. (IMI), Boyne City, Mich.
