The latest metal detector for the food processing and packaging industry is now available from national distributor J.L. Lennard.
According to its manufacturer, the APEX 500 is the most sensitive, yet easy to operate metal detector in the world.
“In today’s competitive marketplace, food products must be delivered on time and at a competitive price. Food safety cannot be compromised, so metal detectors are an integral part of an HAACP program,” said J.L. Lennard General Manager Packaging Tony Dinallo.
“The unmatched sensitivity of the APEX 500 meets the food industry’s reliability, environmental and hygiene needs. It enables you to protect your food brands and fulfil your legal requirements. With APEX 500 in the production line, you can quickly and completely achieve your quality goals and be assured that shipments don’t contain any unwanted metallic foreign objects.”
Manufactured by Thermo Scientific, the APEX 500 metal detector uses new technology to create industry standards for performance, stability and reliability.
The multi-coil design improves signal levels, resulting in the highest level of detection capability. This innovation is combined with new shielding techniques that improve sensitivity on wet or conductive products and cut costly waste caused by false rejects.
Only food grade materials are employed in the detector’s construction, including a stainless steel IP66 rated panel case and an ABS control panel that won’t dent or distort, resulting in water leaks and electronics failure.
Features and benefits of the APEX 500 high-performance metal detector include:
• Unmatched sensitivity: Up to 20 per cent small diameter metal can be detected than with previous models.
• Unique icon-driven user interface using concepts employed in mobile phones and PCs. A durable touch panel circuit means you won’t have to worry about damage caused by cleaning or physical abuse.
• Intuitive software: APEX 500 can be set up for most applications in a matter of minutes.
• Two operating frequencies and high/low gain electronics for application flexibility. Autocalibration is selectable.
• Sanitary blue epoxy aperture lining.
• Available with Thermo Scientific conveyor systems that can be custom designed to your individual specifications.
The APEX 500 metal detector comes in a range of standard aperture sizes from 50-1250 mm in width and 50-600 mm in height. Product speed through the aperture can range from 0.5-1000 metres per minute. The instrument is ISO9001 certified.
Dinallo noted that APEX 500 manufacturer Thermo Scientific is recognised as a world leader in advanced analysis instrumentation for the food, pharmaceutical and beverage industries. Thermo Scientific has over 50 years of experience in providing high-quality, cost-effective contaminant detection systems.
