Combining multi-frequency metal detection and checkweighing

02 December 2019

A new scanning multi-frequency metal detector has been designed to help improve productivity and maximise factory floor space by combining the benefits of multiscan metal detection technology with accurate weight control. 

The Thermo Scientific Sentinel 3000 multiscan metal detector can be mounted onto the frame of Thermo Scientific VersaWeigh and Versa GP checkweighers. 

It is the first multi-frequency metal detector designed for metal detection-checkweighing combination systems in food production, offering an overall smaller footprint than is typically required by these two pieces of equipment. By integrating the detector onto the checkweigher frame, the need for an external metal detector conveyor is eliminated. New harmonised Versa checkweigher software offers the ability to operate the checkweigher and metal detector from one screen and is designed to improve usability and reduce training time. 

The Sentinel 3000 metal detector features multiscan technology, which allows users to select up to five frequencies from 50 to 1000 kHz and scan through each frequency at a rapid rate. Multiscan also offers improved sensitivity to identify contaminants that are up to 30% smaller in volume than previous Thermo Scientific technologies.
