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, jam, mustard or soups, our metal detectors will help you to 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 the 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 their 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 center of gravity ensures a high degree of stability, particularly when moving the stand.

White Paper

How artificial intelligence contributes to sustainable and profitable food processing

Despite the breadth of technology available for foreign object detection, certain types of food products remain difficult to inspect via conventional methods. The reason for this is that some foods have high levels of product effect, which can interfere with metal detection. This white paper examines the phenomenon of product effect, the problems it can cause, and why artificial intelligence offers an innovative and promising solution.

OPC UA for production without machine downtime

SITRAPLAS GmbH is a producer of high-performance engineering plastic compounds. Unplanned downtime is a nightmare for every company, but especially for continuous production facilities. When metal separators are networked with plastic processing machines, the flow of information between machines can be monitored.

Safe bread and rolls from the Austrian Waldviertel

The Backwelt Pilz produces pre-baked and pre-cooked deep-frozen baked goods, for the food retail trade, petrol station shops and system gastronomy. In order to ensure that bread and rolls are absolutely free of foreign bodies, the Backwelt Pilz decided, in addition to the existing metal detectors, also to install RAYCON D+ X-ray inspection equipment for packaged products.
