METTLER TOLEDO Safeline Introduces a Gravity Flow Metal Detector for Pharmaceutical Products
Tampa, Florida, April 30, 2007 - Mettler-Toledo Safeline, Inc., the worldwide leader in metal detection and x-ray inspection equipment, introduces the Pharma GF - a gravity fall metal detector with unmatched sensitivity for the inspection of free-flowing pharmaceutical powders.
The Pharma GF maintains the highest inspection standards on bulk powder material, identifying all types of metal contamination including ferrous, non-ferrous, and all grades of stainless steel. Optimal performance is ensured with the self check capability that continuously monitors sensitivity and sounds an alarm if a problem occurs. A separate alarm is activated if the reject fails to respond within a preset time.
The system's Performance Validation Routine is designed to comply with FDA requirements and allows users to confirm that it is tested by qualified personnel with documented test standards at agreed time intervals.
The Pharma GF's high speed diverter reject, constructed of mirror-polished stainless steel, minimizes product loss during contaminant removal. The detector reliably identifies and eliminates contamination regardless of the product volume or flow rate.
The system has a user friendly touch pad interface and a compact design that fits easily under feed hoppers in the milling room or at the discharge of bulk feed conveyors. A variety of aperture sizes are available to accommodate volume throughput of up to 2,250 pounds per hour.
