Accuweigh ’s Perth branch recently commissioned a metal detection machine for Crystal Foods at their Canningvale plant for the cheese line. Prisma’s 08D3 combination metal detection machine was supplied as an IP67 version due to the wet environment in the food production area.
The Prisma 08D3 metal detection machine also comprises a built-in high speed checkweigh to ensure the products being scanned are also of correct weight and the metal detection machine combo is fitted with separate reject bins for checkweighing or contaminate rejections.
Metal detection machines are a mandatory requirement for all areas of food production to ensure raw ingredients do not contain contaminates or that mechanical failure of equipment upstream in the production line does not cause contamination issues in the finished products.
The metal detection component of the Prisma 08D3 models feature the recent advances in multi-frequency scanning for improved scanning speeds with higher detection accuracy and easily copes with the 30 pieces per minute flow rate of the wrapped trays of cheese.
