Fortress Technology's new guide to metal detection

10 May 2012

Fortress Technology (Europe) - manufacturer of high performance ‘Phantom’ metal detection systems for the food industry - has published ‘A practical Guide to Metal Detection in the Food Manufacturing Industry’.

Set to become essential reading among global food manufacturers, processors and packers, the handy, easy-to-read booklet is full of useful advice aimed at further ensuring food safety and reinforcing the importance of metal detection within today’s modern production facility.

Sarah Ketchin, Managing Director at Fortress Technology comments: “The Guide is designed for use by food companies of all sizes, ranging from the fledgling business about to purchase its first system to the multinational organisation with hundreds of units across several sites in different parts of the world.

Sarah continues: “Just nine pages long and A5 size, we have kept text to a minimum and used lots of diagrams, images and illustrations to help demystify the metal detection process even further.”

Fortress Technology’s comprehensive Guide includes sections on how a metal detector works, different type of metal detectors, important features, optimizing the performance of metal detectors, testing procedures, maintenance, validation, minimizing metal detection risk and staff training.
