Food Metal Separators
To make your products safe, to protect your equipment and to meet regulatory requirements, we offer food metal detectors for all segments of the food processing industry. Our food metal detectors can be installed in three basic configurations: gravity drop or free fall, conveyor and pipeline. Our gravity drop or free fall food metal detectors can handle any bulk materials that freely drop through an aperture. These bulk materials can include everything from spices, fresh meat, to powered milk, sugar and cereals. Our conveyor, tunnel or surface detectors are by far the most common form of metal detection in the food processing industry. They can detect metal contaminants in all sorts of products in a conveyor line from packaged cheese products, to cold meat, vegetables, beverages, fruits, baked goods and unprocessed goods. Our ring or pipeline detectors are used for any product conveyed in tubes or pipe. Our food metal separators range in sensitivity performance from moderate to extremely high.

Choosing the Right Food Metal Detector
An important first step in choosing the right food metal detector is to identify an agreed upon minimum particle type and size for removal. For example, if your detection standard for a finished product is the removal of all metal particles larger than 1.5 mm, then only detectors meeting these standards should be considered for purchase and installation. Choosing the right food metal separator for a food processing system depends on two things: the food's magnetic permeability and electrical conductivity. Electrical conductivity in foods are known to generate a signal in a metal separator even when there is no metal. Known as the product effect, you have to choose a metal detector that can minimize these effects. To a lesser degree, choosing the right detector also depends on whether the product is free falling or packaged, and the size, shape and orientation of the metal contaminants with respect to the detection coil.
A metal separation program that sets a sensitivity standard for your entire process is critical to the success of any food processing system. Customers expect food processors to do whatever it takes to ensure that a product is not contaminated by metal. Our food metal separators will not only play an important part when it comes to meeting strict governmental standards, they will prevent costly recalls and any damage to your food processing equipment. To meet these high expectations, we not only offer the latest in metal detection technology, we will help you to setup a quality management system in accordance with HACCP requirements.
