Eriez, a privately-held company, is a global leader in the design and manufacture of separation, materials handling, and inspection equipment used throughout process industries such as food, plastics and chemicals, mining, aggregates, metalworking, and recycling. The applications and production methods requiring its equipment are universal around the world.

Separation equipment typically uses magnetics to remove unwanted tramp metals or metal contaminants in both dry and liquid process flows. Other applications involve metalworking fluid filtration, as well as flotation and magnetic technologies to concentrate minerals.

The materials-handling group comprises feeding, conveying, and screening equipment to move dry materials. Applications and capacities range from metering ounces of flour to moving tons of coal. Its inspection systems are designed to safeguard consumer products like foods and pharmaceuticals from metal contaminants, and protect valuable downstream processing equipment like crushers from large dangerous tramp metals.
