People have a long history of processing and utilization of powders. In ancient times in China, Beijing Cave people used hematite powder to decorate stone beads, etc.; Neolithic era, people added quartz and other powders to the raw material clay for firing pottery to improve the heat-resistant and rapid change performance of the finished Amoy; Yangshao culture (New Stone Age) period, people used hematite, black manganese ore and other powders as pigments to make colored pottery. In contemporary times, powder engineering supports various industries of the national economy.
Many industries need to handle products in powder and bulk solids. These industries include pharmaceutical suppliers, mining, food processing plants, chemical production, oil and gas companies, plastic and rubber manufacturers, paper manufacturers, and more. While there may seem to be a few commonalities between pet food, cement, marijuana, chocolate, cosmetics and industrial chemicals, all of these products and industries rely on magnetic separators and metal detection equipment to ensure that the high-quality products they produce are free from metal contamination.
