IMI Announces Antimicrobial Surface Treatment for Magnetic Separators

For Immediate Release: Posted On 2/13/2012 By Industrial Magnetics, Inc.

Industrial Magnetics, Inc., a manufacturer of magnetic separation devices, is offering a new antimicrobial surface treatment that can be applied to their line of magnetic separators for the food processing & pharmaceutical industries, helping to improve sanitation and production efficiency.

Created by General Magnaplate, "MAGnanoSHIELD®" is a new, FDA compliant, antimicrobial coating technology that offers 99.9999% microbe resistance to bacteria and fungus strains such as, staphylococcus aureus, E. coli, L. monoctyogenes, Gliocladium virens, Aspergillus niger, Penicillium pinophilum, Chaetomium globosum, and Aureobasidium pollulans.

This comprehensive coating technology helps equipment stay clean and safe between sanitation cycles, while increasing production efficiency by requiring less maintenance downtime, chemical cleaning agents and water usage.

Because MAGnanoSHIELD® is incorporated into Magnaplate’s existing wear-resistant coatings, a single coating can be specified that not only resists microbe growth, but also provides protection against friction, wear, moisture, chemical exposure and more.
