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.
Features and benefits
- Several metal detector model options to optimize system size, sensitivity and price
- Wide range of checkweigher belt widths and lengths to fit your production line
- Dual rejecters separating foreign objects from over/ under weights to facilitate root cause problem determination and action
- Sentinel metal detector interface can be displayed on the Versa touchscreen making combined set-up and operation easier and faster
5 reasons to consider a combo* system for improved food safety and quality
1. A new combo system upgrades your entire production line:
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.
2. Combos save space:
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.
3. Combos are easier to use:
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.
4. Combos provide superior value:
Truly integrated combos share hardware resulting in significant savings compared to purchasing a separate metal detector and checkweigher.
5. Combos are more convenient to service/repair:
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.
