Specifically designed for challenging products such as poultry, meat and cheese, a new range of metal detectors from Mettler Toledo have been supplied to major suppliers in the meat and poultry (chicken and ostrich) industries and are achieving fantastic results with zero false rejection.

The quality of your products and the safety of your customers is critical to your business and
auditing specifications are getting ever tighter.

In addition, a major challenge with metal detection when it comes to poultry, meat and cheese is that the product is affected by moisture, blood and injection. If your products are wet, warm or cooling, have varying moisture content or packaged in metallized film, they are more difficult to inspect.

To detect the required metal sizes, many metal detection systems are running at a high rate of false rejection, which are costly and cause rework and users losing faith in the machines. Metal detectors get turned off, contamination gets into the products and audits are failed.

The new Profile Advantage metal detectors utilise the latest multi- simultaneous frequency technology to push metal detector performance to another level. This technology incorporates a product signal suppression technique to effectively cancel out the product signal from difficult to inspect products. Cancelling these product signals or the effect of the package makes it easier to detect metal contaminants up to 50% smaller than previously possible.
In addition, all metal contamination including ferrous, non-ferrous and even the most
difficult to detect non-magnetic stainless steels are readily detected enabling them to be
removed effectively from the manufacturing process.

As such Profile Advantage metal detectors offer improved brand protection and compliance with food safety standards while reducing the cost of operating a world class food safety programme.

When installed at critical control points in your process, Profile Advantage metal detectors enable your business to comply with the requirements of HACCP (Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Points) and the broader needs of external food safety regulations and standards.

Profile Advantage systems support compliance with the latest GFSI standards and external codes of
practice including:

  • BRC version 6 (British Retail Consortium)
  • IFS version 6 (International Featured Standard)
  • SQF Code Edition 7.2
  • FSSC 22000
  • All Major Retailer Standards
  • Food Safety Modernization Act 2011

Profile Advantage also delivers exceptional reliability, improved ease of use and minimises product waste.

Profile Advantage metal detectors are supplied with a METTLER TOLEDO IPac installation and
performance verification package to support ongoing compliance with internal and external standards. This comprehensive package provides full documentation for the installation, commissioning and verification process to ensure audit requirements are met every time.
