Bunting joins EHEDG

17 August 2020

Bunting has joined the European Hygienic Engineering & Design Group (EHEDG) following a rise in magnetic separator and metal detector projects in the food sector, amongst others. 

The principal goal of EHEDG is the promotion of safe food by improving hygienic engineering and design in all aspects of food manufacture.

Bunting is a designer and manufacturers of magnetic separators and metal detectors to help identify and separate metal contamination during the manufacturing process. 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. 

Metal contamination is an issue throughout the food processing industry. In 2020 (up to 24th July), the UK Food Standards Agency has issued seven Food Alerts regarding customer-reaching food products contaminated with metal.  

“Our aim is to provide the best metal separation solutions in terms of both operation and product design,” explained Simon Ayling, european managing director at Bunting. “Joining EHEDG enables an independent approval of the high-standard design and manufacture of our equipment. This is simply another level of reassurance for our customers in the food manufacturing sector.”
