The Thermo Scientific AuditCheck metal detection verification performance system is a unique performance verification system which utilizes an automated test shuttle that moves through the metal detector’s field at user-specified points in time. During this process, the primary metal detector signals are precisely measured and compared to expected values. Unlike the traditional and manual ‘three metal pass/fail’ system auditing, the AuditCheck™ performance verification system can detect potential problems before there is a failure during a manual audit, thus limiting expensive downtime and repair costs. Since the AuditCheck performance verification system is automatic, it can decrease or even eliminate the time and energy spent manually auditing a metal detector and recording the results—thus improving overall production efficiency. Moreover, the AuditCheck performance verification system can help you achieve the highest possible food safety standards.
This paper explains how the Thermo Scientific AuditCheck performance verification system option works; why it can augment or replace manual auditing; and finally, why the overly simplified arguments competitors use against it, are usually not true.
When fully understood and correctly applied, the AuditCheck performance verification system provides unique value in almost any metal detector installation. It reduces or eliminates the need for production operators to manually test metal detectors—making the overall operation more efficient. It also detects small changes before they surface as big problems—creating a type of early warning system.
