SANICON is a high performance metal detection system that includes attention to Food Safety within the Sanitary design. SANICON metal detection systems detect all magnetic and non-magnetic metal contaminants (steel, stainless steel, aluminium etc ), even those which may be contained in the product.

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.

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).

Used to remove fine metal contaminants in dilute-phase pneumatic conveying, MPI’s Pneumatic Line Magnet Hi-G boasts a sanitary design in all product contact areas, 100% stainless steel product areas, and powerful Rare Earth magnet material.

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.

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.
