Although stationery is mostly used in office areas it is impossible to eliminate it from production area. Our range of metal detectable stationery help to minimize foreign body risk if some stationery items have to be brought to production area.
During production process there is always need to identify products. As labels, tags and other items used for identification are very close to product they always increase a risk of foreign body contamination so their detectable versions should be used.
Blue detectable plasters are specificly required and named by food safety systems like BRC, IFS and other. BRC 7.2.3 says that all cuts and gazes should be covered by an apropriately coloured plaster that is different from the product colour (preferably blue) and contains a metal detectable strip.
Personal protective equiment on one hand reduces risk for food safety as it prevents biological hazards or physical hazards (like employees hair) but on the other hand it itself can fall into produced food. It they are metal detectable risk is again reduced.
Detectable safety knives conform both food safety requirements as they are metal detectable and also personell safety requirements as its design prevents accidents of cuts.
Detectable cable ties, grippers and closure are commonly used to close bags or other containers with semi product. As they produce contamination risk during unloading of semi-product they should be metal detectable.
Cable ties are also commonly used to fix cables, pipes and other equipment and often are localised close to open product prouction lines.
Storing, handling and mixing equipment have direct contact with food. Therefore they should be not only food contact approved but also metal & x-ray detectable.
Cleaning of production lines is a daily routine in food industry. During cleaning fractions of filament can be cut and fall into production line. If it is detectable it can be found by inspection equipent.
Different parts of machines such as seals, gaskets, aligners, mixing paddles or others are not only in direct contact with food but also they produce highest risk of contamination of food product. If they are detectable this risk is reduced.
Food satefety systems require that inspection equipment is installed at critical control points and is routinely QA tested with the results documented.
Our test pieces with certified size and type of contaminant are perfect tool to test accuracy of equipment such as metal detectors and X-rays.
