Efficient filtering of metallic impurities in food processing

Magnesys Sarl
Start date
End date
Flour and other powder-type products make up a considerable part of the food market. However, these products are threatened by contamination of metallic dirt during processing. This problem intensifies by the fact that existing magnetic filters are not efficient, while state-of-the-art bullet magnets are expensive to operate. The EU-funded Magnesys project is based on the development and test of HGF, a new magnetic filter for food processing. This will enable uninterrupted filtering of metallic magnetic dirt from various powder foods.
