29.06.2020 Magnetic separator receives EHEDG certification

Eclipse Magnetics, Sheffield, UK, has developed a magnetic separator, for use in pneumatic conveying lines, lean/dilute phase, and gravity pipes, which has been awarded EHEDG (European Hygienic Engineering & Design Group) Type EL Class II certification. The principal goal of EHEDG is the promotion of safe food by improving hygienic engineering and design in all aspects of food/pharmaceutical manufacturing.

Martyn Cotterill, general sales manager for foreign body removal at Eclipse Magnetics said: “We are delighted that our magnetic separator has achieved EHEDG Type EL Class II Certification. It is a huge achievement for us, and we are very pleased to be able to show our commitment to hygienic design and to offer our customers the new EHEDG certified magnetic separator.”

Alison Naismith, lead engineer on the project said: “We spent a considerable amount of time working closely with specialist suppliers and other EHEDG members to produce prototype units to meet this specification. The approval process requires multiple assessors to agree that the designs conform to stringent EHEDG guidelines, so we are delighted to have achieved this certification and to add this product to our range.”

Suitable for dry powders and granulates, the EHEDG magnetic separator removes any ferrous contamination, including the smallest particles. In addition to meeting EHEDG criteria, the unit is also an important component for effective HACCP programmes and customer site audits.
