Do you want to avoid the risk of metallic contaminants halting production or ending up in the final product? Our metal detectors reliably detect all metallic contaminants und provide protection – perfectly tailored to your application.
Regardless of whether the contaminant − exposed or embedded in the product − is made of iron, steel, stainless steel or non-ferrous metals, such as aluminium, copper and brass, our metal detection systems identify all metallic contaminants using inductive technology (see below). They send a signal to the process controls and, together with a separation unit, remove the contaminated products – entirely automatically. Our machines for the food industry are compliant with standards such as IFS, BRC and FSMA.Sesotec metal detectors provide effective protection against damage to machinery, production downtime, customer complaints and recalls. You can rely on our more than 40 years of experience in contaminant detection and product inspection!
Our complete range of leading technology covers a wide range of products, types of conveyance and process steps. Whenever standard solutions do not provide the right fit, we find another way through customisation. Our many years of experience in a variety of user-focused industries enables us to quickly immerse ourselves in your processes and offer solutions that will integrate perfectly into your production line!In terms of design and development, we focus on making the installation, everyday operation and cleaning of our systems as quick and easy as possible. Our machines and systems also feature a high level of mechanical stability and resistance to interference – quality that is engineered and made in Germany.
The detection abilities of our metal detection systems are not limited to
iron or magnetic materials, but rather include every type of metal. To make
this possible, they use the transmitter/receiver method based on
electromagnetic induction. While in operation, the metal detector generates a
constant electromagnetic field. If a piece of metal passes through the
detector, it disturbs the field. The signal subsequently received registers as the
presence of metal.
The software in the control module analyses the recorded signals. It must be able to reliably distinguish metallic contaminants from interference from the environment or the product itself, since a product − depending on its intrinsic conductivity − can alter the signal.
Our control systems therefore use sophisticated algorithms to analyse signals with reference values that either come preset or which are established during ongoing operations. This approach prevents them from triggering false alarms, while enabling them to reliably identify metallic contaminants. If a contaminant is detected, the module (depending on the configuration) sends a signal to the process controls, activates the downstream separation unit, notifies the operating staff and enters the incident into the integrated logbook.

How easy is it to install the metal detector in the production line – and
how easy is it for your staff to operate the device?
Lecture by Sesotec X-ray Product Manager Uli Hurzlmeier concerning the "Food Safety" IFFA focus.
In our white paper, we provide a detailed
outline of the issues, their causes and the necessary countermeasures for
eliminating metal contamination in the plastics processing industry.
In our e-book we show you, amongst others, what challenges the development of the world's population and especially food safety pose for manufacturers and processors and how they can still be mastered.
Almi, an Austrian company headquartered near Linz, and one of the
leading manufacturers of quality flavourings and additives for sausage,
meat, ham and fish products, uses Sesotec “Hygienic Design” metal
detectors throughout their entire production process.
Separately purchased recyclate often contains various different polymers as well as metal contaminants such as aluminum, brass, and stainless steel. Learn in our Case Study how Sitraplas has solved this problem.
