In addition to its simple set-up and operation, we were impressed by how well the HDS Pipeline system works with the vacuum filler.

Mettler-Toledo Safeline, the leading metal detection technology specialist, has developed a range of HDS Pipeline Detectors based on its well-proven Signature platform. This innovative pipeline metal detection solution was originally developed specifically for use on vacuum filling lines where it delivers unrivalled detection sensitivity and stability, as well as user-friendly operation in potentially harsh or extreme working environments.
Designed for easy integration with all leading vacuum fillers and other processing equipment, the HDS Pipeline metal detection system offers consistent and reliable performance. Featuring a full stainless steel construction and sealed to IP69K, HDS systems are capable of withstanding the most extreme conditions and stringent washdown regimes required in meat and food processing plants.
Safeline’s advanced detection coil technology and Signature software platform deliver very high sensitivity to all metal types. Ferrous, non-ferrous and even difficult-to-detect non-magnetic stainless steel contaminants can all be easily detected. In addition, HDS pipeline systems are capable of detecting non-spherical contaminants such as metal clips, wire, swarf and slivers of metal introduced during grinding processes, which have traditionally proved difficult to locate due to a phenomenon known as the ‘orientation effect’.
The short overall length of the throughput tube and utilisation of Safeline’s zero metal-free zone (ZMFZ) technology minimises product “creaming” (uneven distribution of fats towards the outside of…
