The LIQUISCAN VF+ is a metal separator for filling applications. When metal is detected, the separator valve automatically redirects the contaminated product into a special container. LIQUISCAN VF+ metal separators are supplied mounted on a mobile, height-adjustable stand. The low center of gravity and balanced design ensures good stability, especially when the system is moved. 

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).

Gravity FlowHD metal detection systems deliver unrivalled levels of detection sensitivity to all metal contaminants in bulk, free flowing powders and granular products. All systems incorporate a fully integrated high-speed reject valve.

Metal detector for installation in pipeline systems, e.g. for free-fall applications, pneumatic conveyor lines, material columns that are slowly moving down, or pump feed lines. The metal detector is used for the inspection of bulk materials, fibres, or liquid/pasty products.

The VARICON metal detection system detects all metal contaminants (steel, special steel, aluminium, ...) – also metal contaminants that are enclosed in the product. It is used for the inspection of packed and unpacked piece goods. The VARICON-D series is designed for dry-area applications, the VARICON-W series for wet-area applications.

In our pipeline style metal separators series, we have two styles, the pipeLINE™ system is used for liquids or pastes in pressure conveying lines.

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.
