Enhanced Pipeline Metal Detector With PowerPhasePRO Software And Interface To Be Showcased At Food Safety Summit 2010


Mettler-Toledo Safeline, the worldwide leader in metal detection and x-ray inspection equipment, introduces a PowerPhasePRO Pipeline metal detector for unmatched sensitivity to metal contaminants in pumped liquids, slurries and semi-solids. Exceptional online stability delivers maximum uptime for increased profits. The unit will be on display in booth #401 at the Food Safety Summit in Washington, DC, April 12-14, 2010.

The PowerPhasePRO Pipeline metal detector offers multiple frequencies for increased detection sensitivity on piped products. Detecting and automatically rejecting ferrous, non-ferrous, and even irregularly shaped and difficult to detect non-magnetic stainless steel, the system delivers ultimate brand protection for manufacturers and product safety for consumers.

The PowerPhasePRO Pipeline has an icon-driven, full color touch screen interface for extremely simple set-up and operation. Its revolutionary design has a uniform diameter and requires no clamp – unlike any other design in the industry. While all other pipes are secured with a clamp, Safeline's new pipe design uses screw mechanisms at the end points and utilizes o-rings to secure it in place, eradicating the potential for food particles being trapped. It also has the same diameter throughout the length of the pipe which makes "pigging" or cleaning much easier than other designs. With ease of cleaning inside the pipe and less need for cleaning the outside of the pipe, operators are faster and more efficient allowing for more uptime on processing lines.

Safeline pipeline metal detectors are USDA meat, poultry, and dairy approved for the highest sanitation requirements.

PowerPhasePRO metal detectors offer the unique benefit of an advanced ‘change free running mode' enabling multiple products to be run at a single setting thereby eliminating the need to change settings at product changeovers. This maximizes your line's uptime.

The inclusion of advanced, built-in condition monitoring feature provides advanced warning of maintenance needs before failure to further enhance plant efficiency. Critical messages can be communicated directly to key individuals within the manufacturers' organization via email or SMS text messaging.
