Application Note: Plainville Farms Relies On Mettler-Toledo Safeline

By Mettler-Toledo Safeline

Plainville Farms grows and processes natural, antibiotic-free turkeys and produces a wide variety of deli meats. Dedicated to achieving the highest food-safety and product-quality standards, the processor recently turned to Mettler-Toledo Safeline for a new metal detector and selected the PowerPhasePLUS RB.

"Safeline is the only supplier we found with a metal detector that has an aperture large enough to fit our whole turkeys. It's also versatile and programmable. We can change the sensitivity to handle everything from our 2.5-pound breast lobe to a 25-pound turkey," noted Bella Stahl, plant manager at Plainville Farms' Liverpool, N.Y., facility. "Plus, Safeline's service is amazing. Our sales rep, Don Stewart from Flo-Dynamics, even stayed with us during installation and startup to be sure everything went smoothly, which it did."

Customized for each customer and their specific applications, the PowerPhasePLUS RB at Plainville Farms features an aperture that is 22 inches (558 mm) wide and 18 inches (457 mm) high. Initially designed for inspecting 50-pound bulk bags, it is ideally suited for any dry, wet, loose or packaged product. High-frequency detection coil technology and advanced head geometry, combined with new filtering techniques, deliver unparalleled sensitivity and stability despite the large aperture. All metal types are detected, including nonmagnetic stainless-steel fragments.
