Metal detectors have proven themselves in many areas where the
removal of metal contamination prevents damage (e. g. damage to
equipment or diminution of the product quality). The tunnel metal
detectors of the GLS series are used in applications which demand
the highest detection sensitivity. Closed tunnel metal detectors of
the GLS series have a rectangular opening and detect all Fe- and
non-iron metals in loosely poured material and idividualized feeds.
The closed (not splittable) design provides very high detection
sensitivity in the entire tunnel area. The size of the coil can be
chosen depending on the application. Loosely poured material and
inividual pieces can be examined to large heights and an optimum of
Metal detectors are used to guarantee the safety and purity of food
products by detecting any trace of metal that may have contaminated
them during the production process. Because most food processing
equipment is made of metal, fragments of this material can be
unintentionally introduced to the products, posing a hazard to
How sensitive should a metal detection system be?
Metal detection sensitivity needs often vary according to the
operation. For example, a metal detector's primary function might
be to protect a key piece of equipment, such as a sheeter or
slicer. The goal would be to eliminate metal that is large enough
to damage the equipment.
In another part of the line, a different level of sensitivity would
be required to inspect a bulk flow of product. And because final
package inspection should be the most demanding, even higher
sensitivity would be needed to protect your product before it
reaches the marketplace.
Your plant's quality control group should have specific sensitivity
targets for ferrous, non-ferrous, and stainless steel (type 316)
contaminants for each inspection operation. These targets should be
communicated to the metal detector manufacturer so that they can
select the right equipment for each application. Be sure to set
realistic and achievable goals.
Why are Metal Detectors so Important for the discuit Food Industry?
Within the food production industry, there is perhaps no bigger
contaminant material than metal. Due to its abundant use in all
stages of food processing, the material is often found in the raw
foodstuffs. It is essential that this is located and move before
the packaging stage to guarantee the safety of consumers and the
legitimacy of your company.
Metal detectors catering specifically to the food industry should
be a compulsory piece of equipment for any area of food production,
including baked goods, fruit and vegetables, dairy, fish, meat,
cereals, beverages and more.
With the vegetable processing industry for example, the sheer range
of products catering to a variety of vegetables means that here is
always a risk of contamination from metal, through broken equipment
There is also the risk of sabotage within food production,
especially as a large percentage of product is imported overseas
where rules and regulations are not necessarily as strict as within
the United Kingdom. By having a metal detector, the risk of
sabotaged food product reaching the consumer is greatly reduced.
