Metals in plastic granulate may clog hot runner nozzles
Long before the use of metal separators, magnet grids were inserted in the material feeders of Aptar production lines that predominantly comprise injection-moulding machines. These magnet grids, however, were not efficient enough to remove all metal particles from the hot plastic material. Furthermore, magnets only attract ferrous metals.
Metal separators as the perfect solution for Aptar
For more than five years Aptar therefore has been using Sesotec metal separators of the PROTECTOR type for the protection of its processing machines. These metal separators are installed directly above the material inlet of injection-moulding machines. They detect all magnetic and non-magnetic metal contaminants (steel, stainless steel, aluminium, …) even if such contaminants are enclosed in the product. Metal particles are removed by means of a "Quick Valve" reject unit. The PROTECTOR metal separators are perfectly adapted to Aptar's requirements.
Detection accuracy convincing for Aptar
Both Aptar's plant maintenance engineer and production manager consider Sesotec metal separators as an important component in quality assurance: "We are particularly convinced by the detection accuracy of these systems. The daily performance tests demonstrate that the systems operate reliably, that fewer metal particles reach the injection-moulding machines, and that these machines therefore are reliably protected against functional disturbances. To this day we have installed more than 20 PROTECTOR in our production lines."
PROTECTOR protects in many applications
In its application possibilities the PROTECTOR offers highest flexibility. For example the metal separator is ideally suited for application in the packing industry in the production of caps for beverages and other liquids, or in the production of plastic articles for medical technology. Metal separators prevent malfunctions and thus increase the productivity of plastics processing machines.
