Fortress Multi-Lane Food Metal Detector

Tuesday, 20 December, 2016 | Supplied by: Accuweigh Pty Ltd


Metal can find its way into food products in many ways, most commonly through the equipment used in the manufacturing environment. Tiny pieces can shred off cutting blades or grinders, or faulty packaging machinery can discharge a small shard of metal.

Food metal detectors act as critical control points to mitigate the risk of potentially harmful metal contaminants.

The Fortress Multi-Lane Food Metal Detector comprises four separate lanes which travel through a single search head, enabling operators to inspect and independently auto reject packs across multiple lines without the need for individual detector heads or conveyor systems. 

The metal detector randomly separates product into four lanes and is capable of detecting fragments as small as 0.3 mm ferrous, 0.4 mm non-ferrous and 0.5 mm stainless steel. All four heads are controlled from one control panel, enabling streamlined access and intuitive operation.

Instead of installing four single food metal detectors, the conveyor belt only requires minimal widening to accommodate the single search head.

The stainless steel housings and robust construction enable optimum performance even in harsh conditions, including hot or freezing environments.
