Inline Metal Detection 

Inline metal detection plays an important role in a number of industries, including food and pharmaceutical. There are a variety of metals that contain small amounts of iron or magnetic properties that can contaminate food and cause a safety hazard for customers.

These are used to help many industries detect metal and other undesirable foreign objects within their products or packaging. Adding metal detection to your industry will help to protect your brand’s reputation and improve customer satisfaction.

What Is Inline Metal Detection Used For?

Metal is one of the most commonly found contaminant materials within the food production industry.

Metal detection is used to ensure that there there is no metal or other undesirable materials in the food that we eat or other products that we purchase from retailer’s shelves.

The successful removal of metal from these products will help to protect customers and your company’s brand.


How Does Inline Metal Detection Work?

Metal detectors are used to find small particles of nonferrous metal and stainless steel. Machines are able to detect these foreign bodies through a transmitter-receiver method.

Metal detectors are furnished with a transmitter coil and two receiver coils. When a metal particle passes through the metal detector it interferes with the electromagnetic field.

This causes a signal to be detected by the receiver coils. The machine will analyse this signal and will show if metal is present in the food products.
