Performance monitoring of metal detection equipment is essential to ensure it continues to work as it should. However, when it comes to testing vertical metal detectors inspecting free-falling product, this often involves stopping production, or wasting good product, both of which can have a negative impact on Overall Equipment Effectiveness (OEE).
By installing the latest Profile T Series or ST Series metal detectors, or the latest Profile Gravity Fall metal detection systems, you can lower your total cost of ownership and significantly improve your OEE.
To find out if your Profile throat metal detector or gravity fall metal detection system can be upgraded with the latest vertical enhancements, to enquire about replacing your existing metal detector, or to request a quote for a new metal detector, please click on the "Request a Quote" button below.
The latest Profile Throat vertical packing metal detectors and Gravity Fall metal detection systems from METTLER TOLEDO Safeline now offer 'Reduced Test' (RT) mode and optional ATS Auto Test Systems (ATS).
- RT monitors the system performance to ensure it is always working to, or better than your required specification.This enables you to reduce the frequency of routine performance testing by up to 83% (subject to the quarantine period), leading to significant productivity improvements
- The integrated ATS unit is installed inside the aperture of the metal detector and ensures tests are conducted consistently, every time, for multiple metal types to improve process quality. Using ATS, routine performance testing can be completed in under 30 seconds
- Using either or both technologies in combination delivers the added benefit of enhanced worker safety by significantly reducing or virtually eliminating the need to work at height to conduct routine performance monitoring tests on your metal detectors installed in vertical packing or gravity-fed applications
