Pile Driving Equipment
Pile Driving is a common activity in the construction of large structures such as bridges and buildings. Piles - heavy beams of concrete, steel, or other material - are pounded into the ground by a large "hammer" attached to a crane. Critical in this process is the use of a "cushion pad", which ...

Tivar® MD - Metal Detectable UHMW-PE

OVERVIEW
Tivar® MD - Metal Detectable UHMW-PE - Metal-detectable plastics for food processing.
Quadrant has extended its portfolio of food-compliant materials with PE-, POM- and PA6-based metal-detectable plastics for food-processing equipment. The materials enable manufacturers to more efficiently address the issue of breakage and wear in equipment parts.

Quadrant's new range of metal-detectable (MD) engineering thermoplastics is designed to support the food-processing industry's need for reliable, traceable and cost-effective machine parts. Quadrant is the first manufacturer to offer a choice of polyethylene (PE), polyoxymethylene (POM) and polyamide (PA6)-based food-contact-approved MD engineering materials.

The food-processing industry requires plastics equipment parts that will provide a high level resistance to wear and tear, and the cleanliness necessary for today's fast line speeds. At the same time, parts must provide the reassurance of easy detection should fragments or particles break off and fall into the foodstuff during processing.

Quadrant's set of three MD modified plastics comprises TIVAR MD, based on ultra-high-molecular-weight polyethylene (PE-UHMW); Acetron MD, based on POM; and Nylatron MD, based on PA6. Acetron MD and Nylatron MD are available in a blue colour to aid visual and MD detectability; X-ray detection is also possible.
  • TIVAR MD is available in grey colour.
  • All materials deliver the necessary MD level for particles as small as 3 x 3 x 3mm.
    In addition to food compliancy (according to FDA and EU Directive 2002/72 EC standards), the individual materials offer different advantages, such as good impact resistance, high wear resistance and good machining properties.
