Add leading metal detection technology to flexible checkweighing solutions to minimize space and integrate operation. For the highest level of food safety and integration, a Thermo Scientific Sentinel 3000 or 5000 metal detector with Multiscan technology can be mounted either on the weighframe or on an external infeed conveyor.
Food safety and quality go together. So why have new technology for one part of your product inspection solution and old technology for the other? A new combo system gives you the best of both, upgrading your capability for the ultimate in brand protection.
Floor space and line length can be precious in a typical food processing facility. A combo where the metal detector is mounted on the same conveyor as the checkweigher can have up to a 50% smaller footprint than two stand-alone systems.
With the Thermo Scientific VersaWeigh Checkweigher and Thermo Scientific Sentinel 3000 Multiscan Metal Detector harmonized, communications between the metal detector and checkweigher means operation, set-up, program management, statistics, alarms and rejection can be managed through a single controller for ease of use.
Truly integrated combos share hardware resulting in significant savings compared to purchasing a separate metal detector and checkweigher.
Thermo Scientific combos are designed to operate as one system, so troubleshooting is easier and faster. A single point of contact also means you get factory-trained field service engineers for the complete system to diagnose problems and maximize equipment uptime.
