UPFRONT TESTING FOR OPTIMUM PERFORMANCE

Advanced Detection Systems’ ProScan Max III metal detection systems are made in the USA and are ideal for ice cream, inclusions, and other pipe-fed viscous dairy products. The company offers a free upfront product testing service that leads to a trouble-free startup at any facility, it says. Product testing allows the company to build a metal detector for optimum performance and reliability in specific products and guarantee ferrous, non-ferrous, and stainless-steel detection levels.

A SENSITIVE METAL DETECTION SYSTEM

The M30 R-Series of metal detection systems from Mettler Toledo deliver smart, digital inspection at a reasonable price, the company says. Combined with advanced algorithms, smart SENSE software makes it possible for entry-level models to deliver high sensitivity to all metal contaminant types with minimal false rejects, it adds. Dynamic Stability Control innovations stabilize the core sensor of the metal detector and help protect against interference for increased reliability. The metal detector and conveyor also can be easily upgraded as compliance or production requirements change, which helps manufacturers achieve a lower overall cost of ownership and extend the useful life of their equipment.
