Newton, KS, March 31, 2016 – Bunting® Magnetics Co., the leader in moving, removing and holding metal continues to revolutionize magnetic separation with its all-new Metal Detectable Gaskets and Grommets, now available on equipment for food, powder or bulk solid processing lines.

Bunting Magnetics Co. Logo“Today, processors of any consumable product are increasing their demands for improved product safety. And until now, gaskets and grommets in magnetic separation products could chip off and potentially contaminate the product,” described Rick Bigham, Metal Separation Product Manager, Bunting Magnetics. “Now, the risk is minimized with our industry-leading metal-detectable gaskets and grommets. If a piece chips off or the gasket breaks, it is immediately caught by the equipment’s magnetic cartridge or plate. The broken piece can also be seen in any metal detection or x-ray system. The result is a protected product and reputation and, more importantly, a safer product.” c The Metal-Detectable Gaskets and Grommets are FDA compliant and available on all Bunting Magnetic Separation equipment, ensuring maximum product purity in your foods, powders, bulk solids, liquids and slurries.
