Overcoming Product Effect
Overcoming product effect can be a challenge when using metal detection technology to inspect wet products such as meat, poultry, seafood, dairy, bakery and ready meals, or those products packed in metallized film. This infographic explains:
- The phenomenon of product effect
- 7 factors that contribute to product effect for metal detectors
- Why it is important that product effect is overcome
- How Profile Advantage technology combats product effect
- The benefits for food processors
Traditionally, the solution to overcoming product effect was to reduce the sensitivity of the metal detector. However, this significantly increases the risk of larger metal contaminants going undetected, and ultimately increases the chances of metal contaminated products reaching retailers' shelves and end consumers.
Innovative Profile Advantage technology from METTLER TOLEDO Safeline is the ideal solution to overcoming product effect in challenging applications. In addition to being able to detect smaller metal contaminants in wet applications, this proprietary technology can also virtually eliminate false rejects to improve productivity.
With Profile Advantage Pipeline technology, bubbles and voids in the product flow no longer have an impact on the metal detector's performance, so overcoming product effect is now achievable in more than just conveyorized food processing applications.
