Sartorius has produced a metal detector sensitive to all types of metal, including magnetic particles, high-alloy steel particles and non ferrous metals (copper, brass, lead etc), in a diverse range of products to help minimise the risk of metal contaminants being found by consumers in food or damaging process machinery.
The detector works through a relay activated when metal is detected and its potential-free switch-over contact can be used for any control processes, such as stopping the processing machine or conveyor belt, activating marking devices or ejectors. Once a particle is detected the contaminated product is ejected.
According to the company, the automatic self-monitoring and quality assurance routines ensure the highest possible safety and the stainless steel housing (AISI 304/BS 304) meets the highest requirements of hygiene in accordance with HACCP.
