Metal detection systems for liquids and pastes

The food industry has to meet the highest quality standards. Regardless of whether you produce sausage meat, processed cheese, marmalade, mustard or soups, our metal detectors will help you reliably protect machines and consumers from metallic contaminants. What is more, they are extremely easy to integrate into your production lines.

Our metal detection systems for liquid and paste products can be quickly and easily integrated into existing piping systems and connected to all common vacuum fillers, pumps, clipper machines and sausage-filling machines. Thanks to different separation systems to choose from, they ensure the safe and efficient removal of all metallic contaminants. More information on how Sesotec metal detectors and separators work is available here.

The benefits in detail

  • Thanks to quick-lock couplings, our metal detectors are extremely easy to integrate into piping systems and to attach to vacuum fillers, pumps and other processing equipment.
  • They also offer the shortest installation length possible.
  • They are particularly easy to clean thanks to their functional, sturdy and hygienic stainless steel design plus their high protection class.
  • Our metal detection systems help you meet IFS, BRC and FSMA requirements.
  • Thanks to two-channel technology, they provide the highest sensitivity to all metals, regardless of whether they are magnetic or not.
  • The GENIUS+ control unit with touch display ensures extremely easy and intuitive handling.
  • Digital signal processing provides optimum security in line with EU directives. At the same time, self-monitoring, self-calibration and temperature compensation functions are available.
  • As a result, our metal separators are particularly well suited to automatic processes and the requirements of quality control systems.
  • Our metal detection systems feature an auto-learn function to best compensate for the intrinsic conductivity of the inspected material.

Design and alternative configurations 

For filler applications and pumped products

Our metal detection systems for liquids and pastes have been designed for straightforward installation in piping systems up to a nominal width of 100 mm and attachment to vacuum fillers and pumps.

Different separation systems

Different valves perfectly tailored to the product features guarantee the safe removal of metallic contaminants. Ball, piston and arc valves are available.

Different pipe diameters

Depending on the necessary throughput, our metal separators are available in different pipe diameters.

Stable and mobile

We can optionally provide our machines on a mobile, height-adjustable stand. The low, well-balanced centre of gravity ensures a high degree of stability, particularly when moving the stand.
