Industrial Metal Detector for food & non-food
Conveyor metal detection system for the food and pharmaceutical processing and packaging industries. Al Thika Packaging Gulf’s leading supplier.
Industrial metal detectors and metal detection systems can safely detect and reject metal contamination from production lines to help manufacturers achieve compliance, minimise risk of product recalls and reduce production downtime. Metal detection systems are available for a range of food, non-food and pharmaceutical applications. Our portfolio includes tunnel and throat metal detectors, and gravity fall, pipeline, pharmaceutical and conveyorized metal detection systems. Mettler Toledo Safeline is the global market leader in the field of industrial metal detector for the food and pharmaceutical processing and packaging industries.

Safeline Test Samples, Tablets & Cards
Our test sample pieces support ongoing verification of equipment performance helping your business meet international food safety standards and retailer codes of practice.
Supporting Regulatory Compliance Requirements
Installing a metal detection system can help food manufacturers achieve compliance with the following Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Points (HACCP)-based Global Food Safety Initiative (GFSI)-recognised standards, which include but are not limited to:
Food and beverage based standards:
Other schemes do exist but the five schemes listed above equate to probably over 90% of the adopted standards currently being applied.
Our product inspection equipment can also help pharmaceutical manufacturers comply with Good Manufacturing Practice, especially 21 CFR Parts 210 and 211, GAMP and 21 CFR Part 11, which are enforced by the European Medicines Agency (EMEA) in Europe and the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in the US.
So when selecting a metal detection solution for a food or pharmaceutical application, there can only be one choice
Why you Purchase a Metal Detector?
The purchase of a metal detection system can represent a significant capital investment for many companies, so it’s important that the equipment is reliable, of appropriate design for the intended application, and used in the most effective way. This will ensure a good return on investment through decreasing costs and maximising product safety. Benefits include:
Additionally, metal detection systems can effectively improve your overall equipment efficiency (OEE) and thus reduce your total cost of ownership (TCO).
Where can a metal detection System Be used?
Metal detectors may be used at various stages of a production process:
- Bulk “In-Process” Inspection
- Finished Product Inspection
What are the types of metal?
Metals can generally be categorised as being either ferrous, non-ferrous or stainless steel. The sensitivity of a metal detector will vary dependent upon the type of metal present. The ease of detection depends on the magnetic permeability (how easily they are magnetised) and the electrical conductivity of the metal.
What is a metal detection system?
An industrial metal detection system is a sophisticated piece of equipment used to detect and reject unwanted metal contamination. When properly installed and operated, it will help to reduce metal contamination and improve food safety.
