When it comes to food safety, there's an unlikely superhero that doesn't wear a cape but is just as important: Magnets! Yes, you heard that right. Magnets are the silent guardians in the food industry, tirelessly working to keep your food free from metallic invaders. And let's face it, nobody wants a side of iron filings with their morning cereal.

So, what are these magnetic marvels that ensure our food remains uncontaminated? Let's break it down:

  • First, we have the Drawer Magnets: Think of these as the bouncers at the club. They're the first line of defense, checking for any metal that's trying to crash the party. They're used in dry products like grains, flour, and spices.

  • Don’t forget about the Plate Magnets: These are the undercover agents strategically placed under chutes or conveyor belts, snagging any rogue metal trying to slip past security.

  • Let’s take a quick look at Pneumatic Inline Magnets: Also known as Bullet Magnets, these are the speedsters of the group, zipping through high-velocity lines to catch any metal fragments that think they can outrun them.

  • Lastly, there are the Liquid Trap Magnets: These are the scuba divers, plunging into your liquids, sauces, and soups to fish out any unwelcome metallic contaminants.


Now, you might be thinking, "That's all well and good, but how do I know if my magnets are still up to the task?" Fear not, for D.L. Newslow & Associates, Inc., in partnership with AMR, is here to save the day! With their on-site magnet testing and verification service, they'll swoop in with their calibrated gauss meters faster than you can say "magnetic flux density" and ensure that your magnets are in tip-top shape.

What is AMR, you ask? Anisotropic Magneto Resistance is like the chameleon of the electronics world, changing its resistance with the direction of a magnetic field. It's not just a cool party trick; it's a fundamental principle used in various applications, including the food industry. Here, AMR technology is the unsung hero in the automation process, helping to move things along from farm to table with robotic precision. Imagine tiny robotic sous-chefs ensuring your food is handled with the utmost care, all thanks to the wonders of AMR! It's like having a futuristic kitchen where the appliances know more about magnetism than a physics professor.


Why is this important, you ask? Well, imagine biting into a juicy burger only to find it's got a bit more crunch than you bargained for. Not only is it a fast track to a toothache, but it's also a potential PR nightmare for food producers. That's where D.L. Newslow & Associates, Inc. comes in, providing peace of mind and saving your molars and reputation in one fell swoop.


D.L. Newslow & Associates, Inc. are here to help keep your food safe and metal-free. Because when it comes to food safety, it's not just about what you can see; it's about what you can't see that makes all the difference. And remember, when it comes to magnets, they're not just attracting your fridge notes; they're attracting safety!
