Prior to and after installation of a detection system, testing is essential before processing environments can be considered to be operating under detectable protection. Metal and X-ray detection systems are very accurate, high tech and high specification instruments and there are many variables to consider to ensure detectability.
Some of the most common system variables are:
• Type of food or product
• Type of metal in the contaminant
• Speed and orientation of the metal
• Detector settings
• Sensitivity and age of the machine
Please ensure your on-site technical manager is familiar with variables such as these before calibrating your detection system.
