Pulp, Paper... and Automobiles
It is official, after 40 years of continuous service to the Pulp & Paper Industry removing damaging micron size iron particles for condensate process streams, Milhous Company’s BallMatrix Electromagnetic Iron Separator System has found a new home in the Automobile Industry. In Fourth Quarter 2020, the inaugural BallMatrix was installed and commissioned at Stellantis, Warren Truck Plant, Detroit MI. The mature technology of the BallMatrix is now aiding the Ecoat process by removing defect causing 1 – 25 µ size weld balls from pretreat process solutions. “When we were first approached by a major automobile manufacture some five years ago, we knew it would be a good fit”, exclaimed Mark Milhous, President Milhous Company. “We’re just thrilled and grateful to Stellantis for the opportunity to showcase our system. All reports to date indicate that the BallMatrix will soon become the standard practice on paint lines for the removal of those troublesome, defect causing weld balls.” For more details on the BallMatrix and other endeavors of Milhous Company, visit their website.
