Where are metal detectors installed during the food production process?

When used for machinery protection, the metal detector is installed directly before the machine to be protected. If, as in most cases in the food industry, consumer protection is the goal, several inspection points are useful. An inspection of raw material has the advantage that metal particles are separated before they are broken up [...]

What types of metal contaminant are there?

Typically, there are three types of metal that a detector can sense: ferrous, non-ferrous and stainless steel. Ferrous metals – These types of contaminant are both magnetic and conductive, which means they are easily sensed by standard metal detectors. Non-ferrous metals – Although non-ferrous metals are not magnetic, the fact they are conductive means [...]
