Where are pharmaceutical metal detectors placed on a production line?
Pharmaceutical tablet metal detectors such as Safeline's Tablex 2 and Tablex-PRO, should be installed after tablet presses, de-dusters and other pharmaceutical process equipment, enabling manufacturers to comply with the needs of both internal standards and external regulatory requirements.
What metal detection standards are used in the pharmaceutical industry?
All METTLER TOLEDO Safeline pharmaceutical metal detectors support compliance with pharmaceutical regulatory standards and external codes of practice including:
- 21 CFR Part 210 - GMP Predicate Rule
- 21 CFR Part 211 - GMP Predicate Rule
- 21 CFR Part 11 - Electronic Records & Signatures
- Good Automated Manufacturing Practice (GAMP).
What reject mechanisms are available on your pharmaceutical metal detectors?
Manufactured from mirror-polished stainless steel, and incorporating pharmaceutical-grade FDA-approved contact parts throughout, METTLER TOLEDO Safeline's range of Tablex and Pharma GF-PRO metal detection systems have a flexible reject mechanisms to suit your application. Two interchangeable reject devices are available on the Tablex 2 and Tablex-PRO metal detectors: a Side Diverter which is suitable for use in vertically restricted height installations and offers the shortest overall throughout length, and the Lift Flap Diverter which is ideal for straight-line product flow.
An integrated diverter is also available for the Pharma GF-PRO metal detector, which incorporates a fully integrated high speed reject device to divert contaminated product flow.
Do you provide pharmaceutical metal detectors at different sizes to accommodate smaller production spaces?
METTLER TOLEDO Safeline's Tablex 2 and Tablex-PRO metal detectors are available in three standard aperture sizes to accommodate a wide variety of tablet and capsule sizes and throughput rates. There is also a choice of two interchangeable reject devices to suit all product types, applications and configurations.
Our Pharma GF-PRO metal detectors provide efficient inspection of powdered and granular pharmaceutical products under free-fall conditions, a process as important as inspecting tablets and capsules. Pharma GF-PRO metal detectors are compact in size, so they can be installed in restricted spaces. Apertures are available in a choice of two standard sizes to accommodate a wide variety of throughputs. A fully integrated high-speed reject device can also be incorporated to divert contaminated product flow.
