Equipment Snapshot: The METTLER TOLEDO Profile Advantage metal detector incorporates a revolutionary breakthrough in metal detection sensitivity: multi-simultaneous frequency technology. This inspection system delivers unrivalled levels of detection sensitivity to maximize detection and ensure end-user’s brand protection. Multi-simultaneous frequency technology analyzes product signal data captured across a wide spectrum of frequencies simultaneously, as opposed to the traditional detector’s single frequency. This is processed by METTLER TOLEDO’s 3S software algorithm in real time, resulting in a 30 to 50 percent higher sensitivity than competing technologies. 

The unit's technology has been updated, and this new technology makes the Profile Advantage an extremely valuable inspection tool for breads and other baked goods that contain a high degree of moisture and that change temperature as they pass along a production line––conditions that frequently trigger false rejects in conventional metal detectors. In response to these false rejects, operators often set the sensitivity of the metal detector lower to eliminate false rejects and boost throughput. This limits the system’s ability to detect all contaminants. By suppressing those false signals, the Profile Advantage inspects products at full sensitivity, maximizing product safety and protecting your company’s valuable brand image.

In addition, Product Signal Suppression technology virtually eliminates false triggering by suppressing the active and unwanted product signals often produced by the “Product Effect”––signals produced by the products themselves because of moisture or changing temperature. The benefits to the user are lower running costs and a dramatic reduction in product waste.

Profile Advantage metal detectors also incorporate advanced Condition Monitoring technology that assesses the performance and operation of key detector components and circuitry. Operators are alerted of adverse trends or changes in performance that can potentially cause system downtime, giving them advanced warning before a problem occurs. When fitted with METTLER TOLEDO’s optional Due Diligence Enhancement Software Package, Profile Advantage can provide an even higher level of system integrity that delivers total system performance and ensures the highest level of metal detection.
