IMI Announces HACCP International Certification on Hump Magnet Product Line

For Immediate Release: Posted On 1/29/2019 By Industrial Magnetics, Inc.

Industrial Magnetics, Inc.(IMI) recently announced the certification by HACCP International of their sanitary grade Hump Magnet Separators as being suitable for direct contact with food products and for use in HACCP based food safety programs.

Hump Magnets are commonly used for the removal of ferrous tramp metal in gravity-fed processing systems in order to increase product purity and protect processing equipment from damage.

Designed to force the product flow directly into the magnetic field, the Hump Magnet consists of two, heavy duty, diverter-equipped plate magnets in a sanitary grade stainless steel chute. The magnets are gasketed and clamped tightly to the housing for maximum product and dust containment during processing operations and swing open for easy removal of captured tramp metal.

IMI’s Compliance Engineer, Ken Gentner, states, “We’re very pleased to have our Hump Magnet Separators added to the list of HACCP International certified products that we can offer our customers. We’re proud of the fact that engineering food-safe processing equipment has grown to become one of the primary, high industry standards that IMI maintains.”

The certification of IMI’s Hump Magnet marks the 9th product line of Industrial Magnetics, Inc. to achieve HACCP International’s Food Zone Classification, joining previously approved Pneumatic Line Housings, Bullet Magnets, Exposed Pole(EP) Tubes, Plate Magnets, Drawer-in-Housings, Large Tube Housings, Grate Tubes, & Grate Assemblies.

Additionally, 17 of their employees, including regional managers, engineering, operations and inside sales personnel, have been certified as HACCP Managers from the National Environmental Health Association (NEHA). This certification validates their working knowledge for meeting government, industry, and auditor requirements for the development of an effective HACCP plan, including Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP) and the Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA).
