Metal Detector - Food, Pharmaceutical & More Suppliers

A metal detector plays an important product safety role in the food and pharmaceutical industries. Other industries that benefit from the use of a metal detector include rubber, textile, plastics and chemical manufacturing. Metal is one of the most commonly found contaminants in these industries and can be introduced at any stage of the manufacturing process. 

Identifying metal contaminants through the use of a metal detector ensures the safety of the products being manufactured by identifying and removing them from the production line during processing or packaging. Often metal detectors are required to be in compliance with safety standards and industry guidance.

Some metal detectors will simply detect contaminants, while others are all in one systems that consist of a conveyor belt, a tunnel metal detector, a reject mechanism and a scale. Metal detectors can usually be easily integrated into existing production lines without issue. 

There are three main groups of metal contaminants that can be detected by most metal detectors. They are:

  • Ferrous metals such as steel and iron are easily detectable as they are both magnetic and highly conductive.
  • Non-ferrous metals, such as copper, brass and aluminium are only conductive making them slightly more difficult to detect
  • Stainless steel contaminates are non magnetic and poor conductors making them the most difficult to detect.

Regardless of the type of contaminant or position (exposed or embedded) within the product, the device will be able to detect and notify the user.
