Detectable Dolavs – Dolav makes its plastic detectable

Standard food processing scanners can now detect Dolav plastic. Dolav’s new solution helps avoid the risk of plastic foreign objects inside food products. Dolav achieves this by adding a food-approved Detectable Material particle additive to HDPE during box manufacture. The option is now available on Dolav products in two colours, blue or dark grey.

Better than FDA
The effectiveness is convincingly demonstrated by a 5mm cube of Dolav plastic, containing Detectable Material, placed between processed meat slices. It is detected instantly. This is even better than the FDA guidelines on detecting foreign objects of a 7mm cube or greater in food products. It is available on modest sized orders.

Continuous improvement
Dolav detectable material adds modern, technical innovation benefits to the already proven performance of Dolav plastic pallet boxes and pallets. Indeed, Campden BRI has tested and confirmed the Dolav Ace has, “Hygienic design” and abuse-testing confirmation by TÜV SÜD that “Dolavs withstand harsh conditions, better than other boxes tested.”

Risk reduction
The Dolav Ace is a one-piece single moulding with integral runners. With no joints or crevices, it eliminates the potential risk of trapped dirt and contamination. Consequently, the Dolav Ace is already widely used in the food industry. Notably, the Ace is selected to meet the rigorous hygiene demands of the Scandinavian fresh meat sector by Europe’s largest wholesaler.

Colour coding
Also valued is Dolav pallet box colour coding to help keep food production contents separate. Colour coding is easy as Dolav plastic boxes are available in nine standard colours with lids in seven standard colours from the large Dolav warehouse stock in Watton, UK.
