HACCP COMPLIANT METAL DETECTOR KEEPS LINES RUNNING SMOOTHLY

Contamination of food by metal shards from broken machinery is a major safety issue within the food processing industry. Therefore a high-quality metal detector is an essential part of any food processing and packaging line.

A&D Weighing reckons that its EZI-Check metal detector is the ideal solution, and is demonstrating it this week on Stand 70 at AUSPACK 2017.

The EZI-Check metal detector helps food manufacturers to maintain high production standards, and it reduces the risks of damage to their brand reputations and also to the health and safety of their customers.

The EZI-Check metal detector for food processing provides a high level of accuracy to 0.3mm for iron and 0.8mm for stainless steel, thereby helping food processors to deliver safe consumer products. Designed to meet HACCP standards, the EZI-Check provides the quality protection required to keep a production line running smoothly.

The advanced design of the EZI-Check metal detector uses the company’s cutting edge digital signal processing technology to enable high-speed scanning. This makes it a suitable metal detector for food processing in a variety of industrial environments, capable of working with belt speeds up to 60 metres per minute.

The hygienic design is sealed to IP65 standards, making it suitable for operation in wet environments. And operation is simple and intuitive via its large clear 7-inch touchscreen HMI.

The detector is easy to integrate into factory networks using standard Ethernet I/O, and it has onboard storage for digital history of up to 100 inspections, ensuring traceability of results.

A major market driver for the adoption of metal detection by Australian food processors is the QA/QC standards imposed by the major supermarkets.  According to Julian Horsley from A&D Weighing Systems Division: “With the increase in own brand products, the major players insist that their suppliers invest in end of line inspection systems. 40% of the inspection systems we’ve sold in the last two years have been a direct result of a supermarket manufacturing contract.”

The EZICheck Metal Detector can run as a stand-alone system or can easily be integrated with one of A&D’s inline checkweighing modules for a complete end-of-line inspection solution.
