Test Samples to Verify Performance of Your Metal Detector

Test Samples to Verify Performance of Your Metal Detector

We provide a range of certifiable test samples to assist your metal detection testing processes. These are available in a selection of materials, sizes and carriers for any metal detection application, including conveyorized systems, vertical and gravity fall metal detection systems and pipeline systems. Having the correct test pieces to conduct the testing supports accurate and consistent performance verification processes for compliance and due diligence requirements.

Sample FAQ

How does a conveyorized metal detection system work?

A conveyor is integrated with a tunnel metal detector to allow the product to pass through the aperture of the metal detector and be inspected for metal contaminants.

METTLER TOLEDO Safeline provides a range of industrial tunnel metal detectors to suit your inspection and budget needs. They are capable of detecting all types of metal, including ferrous, non-ferrous and even difficult to detect grades of stainless steel.

With our modular Global Conveyor (GC) Series, food processors can choose from a range of reject devices, conveyor belt types, system integration widths and lengths and failsafe monitoring features to provide a flexible solution to meet production needs.

The metal detector, transport system, reject device and a suite of integrated sensors work in harmony so metal-contaminated products can be efficiently detected, rejected and removed from the production process.

What equipment comes with an industrial conveyorized metal detection system?

In addition to the different reject mechanisms available, other important equipment may include:

  • Lockable container to collect and hold rejected product
  • Full-length cover between detector and reject mechanism
  • Failsafe alarm to alert metal detector faults.  

There are a number of additional optional failsafe systems to raise the level of due diligence for manufacturers.

Our metal detection systems for conveyorized applications can be tailored to suit specific inspection requirements, including a choice of aperture sizes, reject mechanisms, failsafe system components, conveyor belt materials, connectivity options and more.

Which environments are conveyorized metal detection systems suitable for?

Our conveyorized metal detection systems are suitable for almost any environment: dry and packaged products, and even wet, chilled and frozen products in extreme environments.

When the working environment gets tough, inspection systems need to be specified to equally high standards. METTLER TOLEDO Safeline's conveyorized metal detection systems can be configured with heavy-duty stainless steel detectors rated at IP69K, integrated with rugged, heavy-duty conveyor frames sealed up to IP69K standard.

Why buy an integrated metal detection solution from a single supplier?

Careful consideration needs to be taken into account when designing a conveyorized metal detection system, particularly around static build up on the conveyor frame. This can interfere with the metal detector and create false rejects. A solid system design eliminates static build up, allowing the detector to run at optimum sensitivity, without false rejects.

Purchasing an integrated metal detection solution from METTLER TOLEDO can help you to maximize your equipment performance by having a seamlessly integrated metal detection solution across your production line, without compromising on reliability.

With flexible modular solutions such as our GC Series metal detection systems, food processors and manufacturers can meet compliance needs now and into the future by adapting the metal detection system to suit changing production line requirements.
