How do industrial metal detectors for meat processing work?

Industrial Metal Detector for Meat Processing
Balanced coil metal detection for meat and poultry diagram

Industrial metal detectors for meat processing are advanced industrial systems that can detect metal contaminants in meat applications, then efficiently reject them from the production line.

Our metal detectors work through a balanced coil system that creates a magnetic field to identify metal contaminants in a product.

As the meat product passes through the aperture, the metal detector will inspect the product and let it pass if there’s no contamination.

However, if a metal contaminant is identified, the metal detector will send a signal that can trigger an audible alarm, light up a beacon, and/or reject the product or stop the flow depending on specifications. Automatic rejection of the product can be carried out in a variety of ways, such as via punch/pusher device, sweep arm, or the contaminated product can be diverted from the product flow.

What type of meat products can the metal detection systems inspect?

There are a wide range of meat products that can be inspected using our industrial metal detectors for meat processing, including:

  • Dry or wet products
  • Hot, chilled, or deep-frozen products
  • Small-sized or large and bulk products
  • Solid or liquid and paste products
  • Loose or packaged products, including those packaged in a metalized film

Look at our variety of advanced industrial metal detectors for meat processing so you can find the system that’s best suited to your meat application.

What can affect the sensitivity of industrial metal detectors for meat processing?

There are various factors that can potentially affect the spherical sensitivity of industrial metal detectors for meat processing. This can include:

  • the size of the aperture the meat products pass through
  • the orientation of the metal contaminant in the meat products
  • the type of packaging the meat products are in

The characteristics of the meat product you are inspecting can also impact sensitivity. Certain meat products which contain high moisture or salt content can be electrically conductive, meaning they behave in a similar way to metal. This behavior is known as "product effect". It’s therefore important to consider these factors when choosing the right industrial metal detector for meat processing in your factory.

Our metal detection systems offer advanced technology – combining Dual- or Multi-Simultaneous Frequency and Product Signal Suppression technology – to overcome the potential issues of product effect in these conductive meat products.
