CFP Metal Separator

Eriez’ Model CFP Metal Separator is installed directly above the material feed throat of an extruder, injection molding or blow molding machine.

CFP Metal Separator


Even the smallest metal particles in molten plastic can cause expensive and
time-consuming damage to extruders, injection and blow molding machinery.  As the use of plastic regrind increases, so does the probability of metal contamination, causing plugged nozzles and valve gates.  Machine downtime and delivery delays are not the only result; the cost of repairing damaged screws and barrells caused by just one larger piece of metal is many times more expensive than the cost of a MODEL CFP system. Machine uptime and reduced repair expenses provide a quick return on investment.


  • Removes even the smallest metallic impurities from plastic regrind and virgin material
  • Improves product purity
  • Reduces process downtime and costly equipment damage
  • Ensures constant production process
  • Operates with a slowly moving or standing column of material
  • Separator mounts directly above the material feed throat
  • Product effect compensation for conductive bulk materials
  • Patented reject mechanism ensures effective and reliable removal of contaminants
