17.08.2020 EHEDG membership for Bunting

Bunting, with European production plants in Berkhamsted and Redditch – both in the UK – has joined the European Hygienic Engineering & Design Group (EHEDG) following a rise in magnetic separator and metal detector projects for the food, pharmaceutical and chemical industries.

Bunting designs and manufactures equipment to identify and separate metal contamination during manufacturing processes.  Metal contamination is often introduced into a process with the raw materials or occurs following wear or damage to processing equipment.  Magnetic separators, commonly featuring high-strength rare earth magnets, attract, hold and separate magnetically susceptible contamination.  Metal detectors tend to be used later in the process, often as a final check, to identify any ferrous or non-ferrous metal contamination.

The EHEDG was founded in 1989 as a non-profit consortium of equipment manufacturers, food producers, suppliers to the food industry, research institutes and universities, public health authorities and governmental organisations.  Its principal goal is the promotion of safe food by improving hygienic engineering and design in all aspects of food manufacture.
