Conveyor belt metal detector for food products

Inspecting and rejecting finished food products for metal contamination is a vital part of the manufacturing process. However, many existing detection solutions require a line redesign in order to be integrated into existing production. A complete system comprising high-sensitivity detection with food-safe conveying and automatic rejection allows for simple integration into almost any existing facility.

Metal detection and rejection system with conveyor

The THS/FBB and THS/MBB from Ceia are self-contained metal detection and (optionally) rejection systems for food products with an inbuilt conveyor. This allows for the simplest integration of high-sensitivity contamination detection into any existing line operation.

CEIA Conveyor Inspection Systems are available in a wide range of sizes covering different application requirements with flat (THS/FBB) or modular (THS/MBB) belt: the inspection systems are certified fully compatible with food product handling ( EU, FDA compliant) requirements.

THS/FBB and THS/MBB feature the high-performance THS21 multi-spectrum metal detection system. This has been purpose-designed for maximum sensitivity, even in difficult installations with high levels of electromagnetic interference.

The detector unit feature auto-learning, meaning it can be used with a huge variety of product and packaging types without affecting its ability to detect all ferrous, non-ferrous and stainless steel metals.

The conveyor system is built around a hygienic structure of AISI 316L stainless steel. It features full digital control of the conveyor speed and can be configured for a range of rejection methods including belt stop, air blast, pusher arm and retractable systems.
