S+S meets the demand for the best sensitivity

Al-Yemeni Cafe, a Cairo based Egyptian company, is a leading producer of ground Turkish coffee. Operating from its own 10,000 square metre factory since 1940, Al-Yemeni Cafe employs the latest state-of-the-art machinery to improve product quality and ensure customer satisfaction. The plant complies with all IFS, ISO 9001 and HACCP standards and holds many quality accreditations from external organisations.

It was particularly important for this application to select metal detection systems that meet all the HACCP and IFS requirements. It is also a requirement to accurately separate material containing contamination with a swivel hopper rather than a flap which may cause problems with product deposits.

Since May 2013 Al-Yemeni Cafe have been using an S+S  RAPID 8000 metal detector with integral rejection systems designed specifically for  free-falling bulk materials. This model was chosen because of its high sensitivity and the ease with which it will detect all magnetic and non-magnetic metal contamination – even when contamination is enclosed in the product. Metal contaminants are removed using an integral swivel hopper. The 8000 metal detection systems is part of the S+S RAPID range of products and is particularly suited to food industry applications where high levels of hygiene are required. Its low overall height even with large nominal widths guarantees easy integration of the metal separator into existing pipe systems.
