Could metal be going undetected on your production line?

Sensitivity is the metal detector’s ability to detect a specific type and size of metal contaminant. A small difference in spherical sensitivity performance can mean a big difference in the length of wires or other irregular-shaped contaminants that can be detected by your metal detection system. Investing in a metal detector that delivers the highest possible sensitivity can mean the difference between detecting a contaminant before product leaves your factory, and potentially facing a costly product recall due to undetected metal.

Detectable Cable Management Solutions for Food & Beverage Processing

Meeting the challenges of detectability

Food and beverage processors are conscious of the challenges faced in detecting contamination with foreign objects, especially plastic objects. Whether, and to what extent, a foreign object is detected depends on a number of factors such as material, the type of detector, equipment sensitivity, calibration, conveyance speed and the type of food being processed. It is important that metal in a plastic product is uniformly dispersed to allow detection of fragments. Depending on the application, a metal detectable tie might also need to be resistant to chemicals, high temperatures and to float in liquids.
