Plastic has combined characteristics of being magnetically detectable and X-ray visible plastic

Detectamet : 19 April, 2011  (New Product)
Exploiting the ever increasing popularity of X-Ray Inspection Machines within the Food & Pharmaceutical Industries, Detectamet has launched Detectamet Super XD Plastic.
X-Ray machines have an advantage over metal detectors in being able to detect a wider range of foreign bodies - this is because the foreign body is significantly different from the food material in X-Ray density enabling it to be detected.

The new Detectamet Super XD plastic has the combined characteristics of being “Magnetically Detectable” with the additional benefit of being “X-Ray Visible”!

Until now, food / pharmaceutical processors with both Metal and X-Ray detection equipment installed in their production facility had to purchase record and monitor separately their hand tools, pens, etc in order to minimise the risk of cross contamination from using the wrong type of detectable product on a particular production line.

Using products manufactured from Detectamet Super XD Plastic reduces the risk of product contamination across the whole site without fear of cross contamination maximising the benefits of using detectable products demonstrating the use of “all due-diligence”.

Detectamet intends to incorporating the new plastic into its range, beginning with Pens, Markers, and Swipe Card Holders. Eventually most of the Detectamet products will be supplied as standard using Super XD polymer.

Detectamet Super XD Plastic is FDA compliant and will be supplied in the following hygiene colours: blue, red, green, yellow and white and in a range of plastics materials, including polypropylene, nylon and ABS.
