Throat Metal Detectors Ensure Metal Free Confectionary Products

June 25, 2009

The ZMFZ Throat metal detector, by Mettler-Toledo Safeline, inspects a wide range of snack food and confectionery products, including hard candies, toffees, chews, potato chips and cereal mixes.

Mettler-Toledo Safeline Throat metal detectors are offered in medium to high frequencies for improved detection of all metals, particularly the difficult-to-detect stainless steel.

Typically installed just prior to vertical form-fill-seal bag-making machines, the ZMFZ  metal detector is ideal for free-flowing product – allowing confectionaries to be checked at the last possible moment before packaging so that there are no further opportunities for metal contamination prior to the packs being sealed.

Mettler-Toledo Safeline patented ZMFZ (Zero Metal Free Zone) technology allows for installation in the tightest of spaces where the performance of conventional metal detectors would be compromised by interference from nearby metal parts or support structures.  This reduces installation costs, as there is no need for re-engineering of plant, buildings or support structures.

The user-friendly interface allows for fast set-up and change over for minimal downtime. Like all Mettler-Toledo Safeline products, the ZMFZ Throat metal detector is backed by the most comprehensive service network in the industry with 24/7 technical support.

The ZMFZ metal detector will be showcased in booth #C-657 at Pack Expo in Las Vegas, October 5 – 7, 2009.
