Pre-Audit Site Surveys

When was your magnetic equipment last checked ?

In-line with HACCP procedures and most retailer or BRC process audits , it is vital that critical Foreign Body Removal equipment such as Magnetic Separators and Metal Detectors are assessed and tested annually to highlight any performance issues. In the correct opertaing conditions, permanent magnets can have a long trouble-free lifespan. However, the performance of magnetic equipment can vary depending on the age, design, product type, operating conditions, wear or impact damage.

It is really important to have annual performance tests to maintain high levels of protection. Our dedicated service team provides a comprehensive assessment and certification for audit requirements by a qualified engineer. This is followed by a documented report which can be used as evidence for 3rd party audits. Where required we can carry out on-site remedial repairs or magnet upgrades.  More extensive repair work can be done at our manufacturing facility.   

Should you choose to take out one of equipment service contracts, we will plan your service schedule and contact you when the equipment service is due. To arrange a site survey or simply find out more please contact us.
