Ohlson Brand Metal Detector

When it comes to the food industry, industrial food metal detectors play a critical role in quality assurance. The Department of Agriculture Weights and Measures, as well as other audit processes and government organizations, have strict regulations and industry standards in place that businesses must be in compliance with at all times.

Our Ohlson Brand metal detection machines, which can either be on a conveyor or set up to detect metal contaminants as they fall through a vertical opening, are highly sensitive to the presence of metal in any of the food products moving through the system within your supply chain. This detection enables you to identify any issues and avoid contaminating your entire production and packaging processes.

All models include:

  • Option to Stop Automatically Upon Metal Detection & Automatically Reject Container
  • Accuracy up to 0.8 mm FE and 2.0 mm SS (Product dependent)
