Increased sensitivity with new tna hyper-detect® 5 metal detector

24 October 2014

Global food packaging and processing solutions specialist, tna, introduces the new tna hyper-detect® 5 metal detector.

The patented design of the new system improves metal detection capabilities while eliminating degradation in product transfer to ultimately deliver safe product throughput and minimise rejects.   

The tna hyper-detect® is the world’s first non-symmetrical balanced coil metal detector with a conical aperture into the detector. While conventional ‘throat’ metal detectors have been used by manufacturers to inspect the product before it enters the bag to allow the use of metallised film, these limit product throughput and packaging speeds. The revolutionary integrated design of the new tna hyper-detect® 5 allows the metal detector to be positioned much closer to the multi-head weigher, dramatically increasing the speed at which the bagger can produce finished bags. 

With a high frequency function, the tna hyper-detect® 5 provides stable operation for optimum sensitivity and consistent performance when inspecting products. The integrated design, including its unique shape and tapered chute, does not increase the system’s height, requiring minimal installation space, plus it can be fully integrated with baggers and weighers. In this way, the detector can run at much faster speeds while maintaining high sensitivity levels. Able to detect ferrous contaminants from 0.8mm to 0.9mm, non-ferrous pieces up to 1.0mm and non-magnetic stainless steel from 1.0mm to 1.2mm, the tna hyper-detect® 5 is extremely sensitive. This greatly reduces the risk of contaminants entering the value chain, safeguarding consumer safety and the company’s reputation. 

Lawrence Roos, group R&D manager, tna, comments, “Ensuring products are contaminant free is critical in today’s health and safety focused operating environments. Yet it’s just not an option to sacrifice efficiency while these vital checks take place. The new the tna hyper-detect® 5 allows manufacturers to maintain high packaging speeds while ensuring that their products are checked to the highest standards, achieving high performance operations with safety assured.”
