Industrial Magnetics, Inc. (IMI) recently announced the certification by Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Points (HACCP) International of their sanitary grade Hump Magnet Separators as being suitable for direct contact with food products and for use in HACCP-based food safety programs.

Hump Magnets are commonly used for the removal of ferrous tramp metal in gravity-fed processing systems in order to increase product purity and protect processing equipment from damage.

IMI’s Compliance Engineer, Ken Gentner, says, “We’re very pleased to have our Hump Magnet Separators added to the list of HACCP International certified products that we can offer our customers. We’re proud of the fact that engineering food-safe processing equipment has grown to become one of the primary, high industry standards that IMI maintains.”

Additionally, 17 of IMI’s employees--including regional managers, engineering, operations, and inside sales personnel--have been certified as HACCP Managers from the National Environmental Health Association. This certification validates their working knowledge for meeting government, industry, and auditor requirements for the development of an effective HACCP plan, including Good Manufacturing Practices and the Food Safety Modernization Act.
