Food Processing

In food production, contamination manifests in water, air, blending, processing, storage and transport of product. With application in beer, liquor, processed food and fresh produce production, OEI magnetic filters offer a sterile solution for filtration of production materials and sub-micron contamination that would otherwise reduce final product quality.

CHALLENGE
Prevent excessive ferrous metal contamination produced during the mill’s corn mixing process from prematurely wearing on the mills equipment components and degrading final product quality.

SOLUTION
Install an OEI magnetic funnel scrubber, which employs three magnetic filter elements, inline of the product flow.

RESULTS

The photos show the magnetic funnel scrubber deployed in the product line, as well as the contamination collected on all three magnetic filter elements after 1 week of operation.

The OEI filter succeeded in improving the product quality and reducing product rejection.

RESULTS

Indonesia Corn Feed Mixer

The challenge was to prevent excessive ferrous metal contamination produced during the mill’s corn mixing process from prematurely wearing on the mills equipment components and degrading final product quality.

Cavenish Farms Fry Oil Reservoir

The challenge was to remove ferous contamination and small production components such as wire fryer belting and bearing pieces from the cooking oil to improve final product quality and extend the cooking oil life.

Indonesia Tobacco Blender

The challenge was to replace the tobacco blender’s existing filters to remove wear contamination and loose/broken processing parts, and to improve product quality.

Orto Verde Ammonia Compressor Lube Oil

The challenge was to improve the operational life and prevent
frequent failures of an ammonia compressor by capturing the wear contamination that was causing filter clogging, premature wear of compressor components, and early oil change-outs.

Indonesian Chocolate Product Line

The challenge was to improve the product quality of chocolate used in a cookie production line and reduce product rejection due to ferrous contamination.

Orogel Ammonia Compressor Lube Oil

The challenge was to improve the cleanliness of the lube oil used on new ammonia compressors in the production facility. The existing filtration was not capturing the wear contamination that was damaging critical compressor components, causing frequent failures.

Indonesia Bean Processing Product Line

The challenge was to replace existing magnetic filtration that was unable to capture the ferrous contamination and large processing parts that were damaging equipment downline and reducing final product quality.

Bonduelle Fresh Produce Conveyor Line

The challenge was to replace existing magnetic filters to improve the product cleanliness of fresh produce, and ultimately reduce production loss caused by product contamination (ferrous metals and process materials such as nails, knuts and wire).

Indonesian Candy Product Line

The challenge was to reduce the incidences of product being rejected due to ferrous contamination.

OEI magnetic filters are designed for 95+% efficiency: they are optimized for fluid viscosity, flow volume, flow rate, temperature, mobility, and mounting requirements.
