Magnetic Separators Added to Prater-Sterling Demo Van

For Immediate Release: Posted On 11/25/2014 By Industrial Magnetics, Inc.

Prater-Sterling’s "Airlock Express" van, designed to demonstrate their equipment for the powder & bulk solids industry, has recently been updated with magnetic separation products from parent company Industrial Magnetics, Inc.

The vehicle typically travels through the states of Michigan, Indiana, Illinois, Wisconsin, Minnesota & Iowa and has made more than 250 plant visits to date in 2014. It’s purpose is to give customers an opportunity for a "hands-on" product experience to aid them in their purchasing decisions and to provide after-sale product training.

Industrial Magnetics, Inc. acquired Prater-Sterling in May, 2014. President Dennis O’Leary states, "Interestingly, we had been considering the concept of a demonstration van at IMI for a number of years. When we discovered that Prater-Sterling was already providing this service to their customers, it became an instant value-add for the IMI brand because it provided another platform to show our capabilities."

Products currently displayed in the van include a variety of Prater Airlocks and wear coatings, as well as IMI magnetic separators for both gravity feed and pneumatic line conveying. Site visits are free of charge and can be scheduled by calling 1-877-AIRLOCK.
