The plate magnets are used to remove metal from the shredded tobacco. Metal enters the tobacco process at various points, including at source, with the raw material infeed, and during the slicing and cutting of the leaves. The plate magnets attract and hold the magnetically susceptible particles, including abraded stainless steel. This prevents damage to delicate processing equipment such as the cutting blades as well as maintaining the quality of the end product.
