The metal detection systems are equipped with the new INTUITY metal detection coil. With multi-simultaneous-frequency technology INTUITY reaches a scanning sensitivity that is up to 50 percent higher than in other systems on the market. Since this coil operates with multiple frequencies in parallel, highest product purity is ensured also in demanding applications with a high product effect. With the new developed INTUITY CONTROL user interface the system also offers improved ease of operation.

WIPOTEC-OCS metal contaminant detectors reliably detect any contamination of your products by the finest metal particles for food processing and packaging. Their usage provides greater customer trust in relation to the best possible product safety. Our detectors can be used both as stand-alone solutions and as space-saving combinations with WIPOTEC-OCS weighing technology.

Protect your product and your reputation in today’s competitive marketplace with Thermo Scientific™ Metal Detectors. Our customized metal detection systems provide reliable, cost-effective protection from even the smallest metal contaminants found in food production anywhere in a process. FSMA plays a large role in how metal detection systems will be viewed in the future for food manufacturers and their suppliers.

LIQUIMAG filter magnets were specifically designed and built to remove even the tiniest magnetic metal particles from many different kinds of liquid and paste products.

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. 

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.

If you’re simply meeting your HACCP foreign material spec, you may be missing many potential cost-saving opportunities. Learn how greater detection levels can reduce your false reject rates as well as minimize or possibly eliminate your need to rework products.

Watch this short demo and discover what you might be missing with only one to two frequencies in multi-frequency metal detection.

In this podcast, Rob Tiernay, Director of Sales at Anritsu, discusses with Food Online Voices how food manufacturers can strike a balance between improving profit margins while ensuring product safety. Additionally, Tiernay explores some of the needs, both in the long and short term, which food manufacturers should account for when deciding if a metal detection or X-Ray inspection solution is right for their company. Further, Tiernay elaborates on the advancements that product inspection solutions have made in detecting low-density contaminants in food products. Finally, Tiernay discusses setting up new manufacturing lines and the best possible point of foreign body detection based on food product type.

In this podcast, Rob Rogers, Senior Advisor of Food Safety and Regulation with Mettler-Toledo, discusses with Food Online Voices some recent, high-profile examples of foreign bodies causing food recalls. Further, Rogers mentions the most common types of foreign body contaminants causing food recalls and what food manufacturers can do to prevent them from entering the market. Additionally, Rogers addresses the long-term benefits food manufacturers, processors, and packagers will see from implementing foreign body detection systems and offers advice to companies seeking metal detection and X-Ray inspection systems. Finally, Rogers mentions FSMA, how it is impacting the food manufacturing industry, and how it is helping innovate the foreign body detection systems market.
