Metal Detection System Safeguards Coated Fruit Products

Accuweigh’s VIC branch recently supplied a metal detection system to Diverse Foods in Melbourne’s Eastern Suburbs to ensure the company’s highly sought after coated fruit pieces are free from metal contaminates in line with their strict quality control standards.

A custom conveyor was locally manufactured for the metal detection system in stainless steel with a 400mm plastic modular belt, with conveyor stop and audible alarm on detection of metal in 10kg cartons and 20kg bags of filled product.

The re-furbished metal detection system and the installation was completed to the client’s satisfaction with the metal detection system easily meeting the client’s food inspection requirements by detection of metal contaminates of 2.0mm Fe, 2.0mm N Fe and 3.0mm S/S.

Diverse Foods is a division of Ultra Fine Foods (S.A) who manufacture and supply chocolate and yoghurt coated fruit pieces and nuts to large well-known food brands which require quality assurance HACCP accreditation.  

Accuweigh (Australia’s largest industrial weigh-packaging company) has been selling and servicing food inspection equipment for nearly 15 years through branches across Australia that provide local state based after sales support in all mainland states.
