Nut supplier cracks false metal readings

160621 fortressReplacing its existing metal detectors with five Fortress Technology Stealth Vertex systems has yielded a 40% improvement in sensitivity and eliminated the issue of false rejects for a leading UK nut and dried fruit processing and packing company. From its BRC (British Retail Consortium) Grade A-accredited factory, the company supplies processed nuts and fruit and seed mixes to major blue chip manufacturers, retailers and food service operators. These are marketed under its own brand as well as customers’ private labels, and include everything from snack pots to individual and sharing pouches and bagged peanuts popular with the pub trade. Weighing and filling bags of peanuts and treenuts ranging from between 50g and 1kg, one of the company’s older detectors was generating false rejects and the other units were not as efficient or as sensitive as they needed to be.”
