Eriez’s Model FF4 Metal Separator is the newest addition to the company’s extensive line of inspection equipment. The Model FF4 Metal Separator, used to inspect dry bulk products under gravity free-fall conditions, is ideal for the plastics and food industries where high sensitivity is required. The Model FF4 Metal Separator detects all ferrous and nonferrous metal contamination (i.e. steel, aluminum, brass, stainless steel) — even when enclosed in the product. Metal contaminants are rejected through the separator’s “Quick Flap” reject unit. The Model FF4 features separate detection and reject valves. The position of the reject outlet can be adjusted to match the collection drum or container. This separator has a low vertical height, enabling an easy fit into existing gravity pipleline systems. The Model FF4 offers high sensitivity to all metals and provides increased interference immunity to electromagnetic interference and vibration. Its pre-installed parameters facilitate easy operation. The Model FF4, with its automatic or manual product compensation, allows flexible adaptation to product conductivity. Standard Jacobs adaptors for inlet and outlet connections enable simplified and swift installation.
