METAL CONTAMINATION WHITE PAPERS & ARTICLES

METAL CONTAMINATION PRODUCTS

The meatLINE detects and separates ferrous and non-ferrous metals from ground meat products as they are pumped toward stuffers or patty formers. The uniquely designed reject mechanism will remove metal contaminant without damaging the integrity of the ground meat.

Our industrial metal detectors and metal detection systems can safely detect and reject metal contamination from production lines to help manufacturers achieve compliance, minimize risk of product recalls and reduce production downtime.

All Eagle x-ray inspection systems are capable of metal detection (including stainless steel, ferrous and non-ferrous metals) in a broad range of applications and packaging types, widely used within the food and pharmaceutical industries.

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 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. 

Space and cost savings is obtained with Anritsu's integrated inspection solution, the combination checkweigher and metal detector system. In one system you can receive high accuracy weighing and metal detection. This combination system is an integration of the SSV series checkweigher and duw series metal detector. This integrated solution combines the best-of-both worlds for safety compliance in the food and pharmaceutical industries.

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.
