Conveyorised metal detection systems improve compliance

09 December 2019

Mettler-Toledo has launched the GC Series conveyorised metal detection systems to improve compliance and reduce total cost of ownership through the provision of robust, easy to use, modular equipment, which can be easily re-configured. 

The systems offer a configurable design that can adapt to meet changing requirements. They can be supplied with a variety of Safeline metal detectors, polyurethane or modular belts, and different reject mechanisms. It is also possible to re-configure the system to adapt to changing production and retailer demands. 

Having a reliable and sensitive metal detection system within a production line allows manufacturers to fulfil their basic regulatory requirements by providing a fully tested solution for detecting metal contaminants, increasing quality assurance.

"We know the benefits a metal detector can bring to a production line; however, having an integrated conveyorised metal detection system provides greater benefits than merely the detection of metal contaminants," said Mike Bradley, Product Inspection Specialist from Mettler-Toledo. 

"With a complete solution from the same supplier, manufacturers can rest assured their metal detection system is compliant with food safety legislation and retailer requirements. The GC Series' modular system also makes operation and maintenance procedures more efficient. Supplementing the system with electronic data collection software takes it one-step further to ensure manufacturers have a fully integrated process solution that enhances compliance and increases production efficiency.”

The GC Series is available with a range of options. Solutions start with simple 'stop-on-detection' systems through to fully-automated detect-and-reject systems, including pushers and air-blast devices. Three levels of due diligence packages, with a suite of failsafe monitoring options, are available to meet specific compliance requirements. 

The design offers interchangeable reject devices and configuration flexibility of components. Maintaining a hygienic production line is key to ensuring high-quality products and reducing potential incidents of biological contamination. The GC Series is designed to minimise risk by allowing quick, effective cleaning processes to be completed. Elements such as the quick release mechanism means conveyor belts can be removed in under 10 minutes, and the tubular, open-frame design and sloping surfaces of the metal detector case minimise dirt traps.

Safeline's conveyor systems are designed to comply with worker health and safety standards, including the Machinery Directive 2006/42/EC, and are manufactured to support European Hygienic Engineering and Design Group (EHEDG) principles. Systems can be supplied with a detailed risk assessment to ensure full compliance with these safety standards.
