The metal detector P-SCAN RG with round opening is mainly used to analyse bulk materials, fibres, or liquid/pasty products in pipelines (free-fall, pressure or pump). It detects all magnetic and non-magnetic metal contamination (steel, stainless steel, aluminium, etc.) even when enclosed in the product. On detection of metal, a signal device and a separation system can be activated or a signal can be send to process controlling. P-SCAN RG metal detectors are mainly used for highly precise detection tasks (e. g. in the food industry).

Eriez Food Liquid Line or Pipeline Metal Detection System enhances product purity and protects vital downstream equipment from metal in the product stream for food manufacturers.

The RAPID metal detector is used for the inspection of bulk materials in free-fall conveyor pipes. It detects all magnetic and non-magnetic metal contaminations (steel, stainless steel, aluminium, ...) - even if such contaminations are embedded in the product. Metal contaminations are rejected by means of a swivel hopper.

Making sure your magnets are operating at optimum separation levels.

Space and cost savings is obtained with Anritsu's integrated inspection solution, the combination checkweigher and metal detector system. In one system you can receive high accuracy weighing and metal detection. This combination system is an integration of the SSV series checkweigher and duw series metal detector. This integrated solution combines the best-of-both worlds for safety compliance in the food and pharmaceutical industries.

Bunting Magnetics Co. has raised the Bread Pan Magnet bar for both Proofing and Oven lines in the food processing industry. Featuring neodymium magnets for maximum holding power, Bunting Bread Pan Magnets are easy to use, easy to adjust (laterally or vertically) and are designed to ‘float’ on racks to maintain pan contact – even with warped or imperfect pans.

Determining your facility’s risks is the first step to preventing product contamination. However, once risk is determined, an assessment should be completed to determine the areas where the most foreign materials can enter a food manufacturing or processing line. This podcast offers insight to limiting your food making facility’s risk factors of foreign body contamination.

During an interview at PACK EXPO 2014, Rob Tiernay, Director of Sales for North America at Anritsu Industrial Solutions USA, discussed with Todd and Todd what to consider when choosing technology for contamination detection. 

In an interview at 2014’s PACK EXPO, Viggo Nielsen, General Manager at Mettler Toledo Safeline, took time to speak with Todd Schnick and Todd Youngblood about the effects FSMA regulations are having on food packaging and inspection. 

In an interview at PACK EXPO, Keith Rhodes, President, Magnetic Products, Inc., discusses the impact of the 2011 Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA) and what manufacturers can do to improve food quality and safety.
