For a Qualitative and Error-Free Production.
With our detectable brooms, shovels or paddles, work remains particularly safe. Specially developed for the food industry, our products are made of metal-detectable plastic. Available in different sizes, lengths and colours, from dustpans to hand paddles.
In the food industry and production, the main objective is to produce and supply high quality, healthy and safe products for consumers. To achieve this goal, strict quality control methods must be implemented to prevent food contamination.
One of the most common sources of food contamination is defective or worn equipment components. Especially in production and packaging operations.
Defective tools bring with them the risk of being quickly mixed with larger assembly equipment and small-volume materials. If the foreign objects are not found, they will reduce the quality of the food and pose health and safety risks to consumers.
Many industries use metal and plastic tools and equipment to prevent these problems from occurring. Compared to other physical contaminants, plastic and rubber contaminants are difficult to reflect conductive, magnetic or high-density properties by metal detection or X-ray detection systems under normal conditions.
This is where the use of detectable plastic materials is becoming increasingly important.
Metal detectable plastics have optical and metal detection properties, standard components with metal powders, including thermoplastics to produce metals at an affordable price and be detectable. The additives make the material sensitive enough to magnetism so that it is conductive and can detect unwanted particles with conventional metal detectors and X-ray equipment.
Detectable articles are mostly blue, which is achieved by grey additives. The blue colour enables sighting because the colour rarely occurs in nature.
