Understanding Challenging Applications for Improved Metal Detection

Limit Metal Detection Obstacles in Food Production Lines

In the food industry many of the products being inspected for metal contamination exhibit a phenomenon known as 'product effect'. This is where the type of product being inspected, can itself hinder the inspection technologies capability to identify that particular contaminant.

Limiting product effect in challenging Meat, Dairy, Bakery and Ready Meal product applications allows for greater overall detection sensitivity and ever smaller amounts of ferrous, non-ferrous and stainless steels to be detected and removed from the production line.

The white paper helps the reader understand product effect in metal detection by:

  • Showing how a metal detector works
  • Identifying the types of product that exhibit this phenomenon (moisture, shape, temperature, etc.)
  • Explaining how to best deal with product effect in your food production line
