Chocolatier Installs Combination Checkweigher And Metal Detector To Reduce Risks

Lake-Champlain-Mettler-Toledo

Lake Champlain Chocolates blends creativity and craftsmanship with fresh, local ingredients to make their gourmet chocolates. Founded in 1983, this multi-generational family business is a passionate advocate of the organic, non-GMO and fair trade certified movements. To support their commitment to excellence, Lake Champlain installed a Mettler-Toledo combination checkweigher / metal detector on their new chocolate bar line last year.

“Lake Champlain has a reputation for exceptional quality, so we needed top-tier inspection equipment that would uphold our high standards,” said Jason Antkowiak, Plant Operations Manager at Lake Champlain. “In addition to protecting our customers and consumers, metal detection is essential for our SQF food safety certification, and checkweighing helps us reliably meet net weight. Since the Mettler-Toledo combination system has both metal detection and checkweighing on a single frame, it has a smaller footprint and was more cost effective than buying two separate units.”

The Mettler-Toledo combination system identifies and rejects ferrous and non-ferrous metal, as well as under- and/or over-weight products at an accuracy of +/- 1 g or better, depending on the application. Products that don’t pass inspection are automatically removed from the line with Mettler-Toledo’s pneumatic reject device.
