Nebraska Food Packing & Labeling With Metal Detector To Ensure Compliance

Aug 15, 2023

Worried about metal and other foreign materials entering your products during processing? Pack & Inspect Group (855-232-1850) now offers the latest models of industry-leading METTLER TOLEDO metal detector systems to ensure product quality and safety.

Did you know that for every quarter cup of cornmeal, the FDA legally allows an average of at least one whole insect, two rodent hairs, and 50 insect fragments, or one fragment of rodent poo?

Those allowances might have a high yuck factor for you, but their risk factor of food-borne illness or injury is low compared to that of stone, metal, plastic, or glass parts in food processing systems.

As you may know, concerns about these risks have been driving demand for metal detectors in the pharmaceutical, food and beverage, and chemical sectors over the past few years.

Pack & Inspect Group aims to address these concerns with their new METTLER TOLEDO Safeline metal detector solutions, offering you maximum detection sensitivity and minimum false rejects.

According to a July 2023 report by leading market research provider Consegic Business Intelligence, the global industrial metal detectors market was valued at about $1.1 billion in 2022 and is expected to exceed $1.5 billion by the year 2030, with a compound annual growth rate of 4.5%. This market growth is being driven by government and regulatory bodies’ increasingly stringent food safety regulations and industry players’ concerns about quality control of pharmaceutical products.

The Pack & Inspect Group’s METTLER TOLEDO Safeline metal detector systems can handle your product, regardless of its format, from packaged food products to granular materials, liquids, and pastes. These systems will also ensure your company is compliant with food safety inspection standards, industry guidance, and legislation.

The detectors are backed by METTLER TOLEDO’s full support services, including a national network of field service technicians and the iPac support paradigm. Safeline offers you models and configurations of detectors that can be combined with METTLER TOLEDO’s checkweigher, X-ray, and vision system products. All these products are supported by a data collection and management system.

Pack & Inspect Group’s metal detector systems are available in two types: those with and without conveyors for flat-belt applications, and gravity fall detectors for powders, grains, and granules. The detectors with flat-belt capability can handle products in bags, pouches, tubs, cartons, cases, or boxes, with dozens of variants available. The gravity fall detector is capable of handling tubes between two and 10 inches in length and has multiple reject options.

“Whether you’re small or large, closer to the farm or the fork, your product needs to be safely and efficiently conveyed and inspected for contents verification, absence of foreign material, and package and labeling integrity,” a company spokesperson explained. “At the Pack & Inspect Group, this is what we do, representing the-best-in-breed of major manufacturers in this arena, providing local expertise in the Upper Midwest to assist you in selection and implementation of solutions.”

In addition to metal detectors, Pack & Inspect Group also offers a wide range of food and beverage products and services, including X-ray inspection, vision systems, conveyors, checkweighers, track and trace solutions, leak detection, pouch-making and pouch-sealing solutions, and expert consulting services.
