S+S metal separators aid increased efficiency in the plastics industry

Economically interesting, high-quality solutions for more than three decades

Schönberg, February 2013
The European plastics industry is subject to considerable international competitive pressures. To maintain long term competitiveness companies must supply high-quality products and must operate at the highest possible efficiency throughout their operations. High levels of automation and minimum machine downtime are essential contributors to lower production costs and in-creased efficiency.

“Metal Free” feedstock granulate, whether virgin or regrind is an important factor in trouble-free production operations. When regrind plastics are used in order to reduce material costs, machine downtimes due to metal contamination can be a frequent problem. Metal particles in the processing material can cause choked hot-runners, mould damage, blocked nozzles, non-return valves, cylinders, and plasticising screws. Remedying such faults consumes valuable time and reduces productivity. To maintain the cost advantages gained from adding regrind material, meet required quality standards, prevent downtimes, and increase production efficiency, leading plastics companies use metal separators from S+S Separation and Sorting Technology GmbH.

Increase machine operating times – prevent malfunctions at source
S+S offers an extensive product range of magnet systems, metal detectors and metal separa-tors that used in all fields of plastics production and processing. S+S metal detectors and sepa-rators are primarily employed to protect processing machines and moulds. They prevent mal-functions caused by metal particles in granulate and as a result increase process continuity and production efficiency. Plasticising screws, nozzles, and cylinders are reliably protected against damage. For extruders and blow-moulding machines effective metal removal reduces machine downtime and production losses caused by choked melt filters and nozzle moulds. For injection-moulding machines metal separators protect moulds, hot-runners, and non-return valves. The robust and long-lived S+S systems offer a rapid return on investment.

Reduced reject rates, increased added value
S+S metal detectors and separators guarantee the purity of plastic products and are an impor-tant component of quality assurance. Metal contaminants that block hot-runners lead to the un-der-injection of plastic parts. Metal separators prevent such faults and guarantee perfect prod-ucts. The use of metal separators clearly reduces melt stress (encrustation); reject rates are re-duced, saving cost and increasing customer satisfaction. Explains Christian Stadler, S+S prod-uct manager for the plastics industry: "When metal separators are used, the quality of the pro-duced plastics and plastic parts clearly increases. There are less malfunctions and downtimes, and companies can produce higher quantities. S+S systems set standards with respect to qual-ity, function, and workmanship. Our customers can rely on S+S for a long time."


S+S metal separators, such as e.g. PROTECTOR PROFESSIONAL, reliably protect extruders, injection-moulding and blow-moulding machines against damage and downtimes that are caused by metal particles in the plastic granulate.

S+S Separation and Sorting Technology GmbH of Schönberg, Bavaria, manufactures ma-chines and systems for the detection/separation of contaminants, for product inspection, and for the sorting of material flows. Product sales primarily focus on the food, plastics, chemical, pharmaceutical, wood, textile, and recycling industries. S+S is one of the world’s leading sup-pliers with subsidiaries in Great Britain, France, Italy, China, Singapore, and in the USA, repre-sentative offices in India and Turkey, and more than 40 agencies all over the world. The S+S group presently has 350 employees, about 300 are working at the main factory in Schönberg. The consolidated turnover in 2012 amounted to approx. Euro 43 million.

No metal will pass this combination
In plastics processing, environmental awareness, but also economic considerations, have resulted in the use of industry-quality granulate (regenerated material, ground material) which frequently shows a slight contamination with foreign objects such as e.g. metal particles. Depending on the production system this may soon cause unwanted machine downtimes. Especially for the plastics industry S+S now offers a system combination that combines the advantages of magnet separators and inductive metal separators. This combination
