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. This is processed by METTLER TOLEDO’s 3S software algorithm in real time, which results in a 30 percent to 50 percent higher sensitivity than competing technologies. 

In addition, Product Signal Suppression technology virtually eliminates the incidence of false triggering by suppressing the active and unwanted product signals often produced by the “Product Effect”––signals produced by the products themselves, particularly high-moisture products and products that change temperature during the production cycle. The benefits to the user are lower running costs and a dramatic reduction in product waste.

This new technology makes the Profile Advantage an extremely valuable inspection tool for meat and poultry that contain a high degree of moisture, and baked goods that contain moisture and that change temperature as they move through production––conditions that triggers false rejects in conventional metal detectors. In response to these false rejects, operators can tend to reduce the sensitivity of the metal detector to boost throughput, thereby limiting its ability to detect all contaminants. By suppressing those false signals, the Profile Advantage inspects products at full sensitivity, ensuring more effective inspection, maximizing product safety and protecting your company’s brand image.

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.
