Mettler-Toledo Safeline’s new Super Throat metal detector is designed specifically to inspect free-falling products in vertical packaging applications.

Mettler-Toledo Safeline, Tampa, Fla., will showcase its new Super Throat metal detection system at Pack Expo in Chicago, Oct. 31–Nov. 3, in Booth S302.

Designed specifically for the inspection of free-falling products, such as snacks and confectionery products in vertical packaging applications, the detector comes with an advanced detection coil system and new detector head geometry that delivers incredible levels of sensitivity with improvements greater than 30% in typical food production environments.

At the heart of Super Throat is the company’s revolutionary PowerPhasePRO electronics platform, which is available in fixed or multi-frequency configurations. The Super Throat also consists of new software algorithm that identifies the signals given off by metal contamination and discriminates between these signals and those generated from the actual product itself.

The equipment also has Zero Metal Free Zone technology that allows it to fit into tight spaces between a multi-head weigher and the inlet of a bagmaker. Condition monitoring system permanently tracks key elements of the detector’s functionality and its performance levels.
