Designed for the flour, grain, bulk material and free-flowing product industries, the METAL SHARK GF (gravity free-fall) metal detector promises maximum detection of magnetic and nonmagnetic contaminants. Generally integrated into a free-flowing product pipeline and enclosed in a 100% stainless steel housing, Cassel metal detectors help food processors and others to meet HACCP, IFS, BRC and GMP safety standards. The powered reject system, framing and controls are available in sanitary design for food-grade process applications.

The magnetic collection of fine particles requires a high-intensity, high-gradient magnetic field. An electromagnetic matrix-type separator, referred to as a magnet filter, has proven to be the most effective method of separation...

This high-quality, high-performance magnet assures the efficient separation of the smallest ferrous and magnetised stainless steel contaminants.

Regardless of your metal detection application, Eriez has the conveyor system and reject device to meet your specific needs.

Grate in Housing cleaning is reduced to a simple push-pull operation with Eriez Easy to Clean Tramp Iron Grate in Housings. The ETC incorporate the same Erium™ Ceramic or Rare Earth magnet material to remove ferrous contamination from free flowing products as it cascades through multiple grate rows combined with a simple push-pull cleaning operation.

Throat and SuperThroat models of Safeline metal detectors are designed for installation in vertical bagging and filling applications in the food industry. Mettler-Toledo Safeline's patented "zero free metal zone" technology and custom support frames significantly reduce the space required between scales and baggers/fillers.

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.
