December 4, 2013

Eriez Model CFP Metal SeparatorEriez offers a full line of metal separators for the plastics and rubber industry, including the Model CFP Metal Separator. Installed directly above the material feed throat of an extruder, injection molding or blow molding machine, this unit offers high sensitivity to all metal types. The Model CFP Metal Separator is extremely compact. Its convenient, space-saving design enables successful operation with all conveying systems, especially vacuum conveyors. Eriez’ patented reject mechanism ensures effective and reliable removal of contaminants. There is very little risk of jamming, even with high proportions of regrind. Metal contaminants are removed by means of a separating slide and a Venturi nozzle via a flexible hose into a reject material container.
