Better detection for better protection: The new Dectyl metal-detectable belt range for improved food safety and brand safety.
In the food industry, nothing is more important than food safety. Contamination can lead to product recalls and loss of public confidence in the food brand. Ammeraal Beltech has been a leader in belting solutions for the food industry, promoting food safety with better belting concepts, including non-fray synthetic belts, Amseal belts with closed belt edges and innovative AntiMicrobial belts. Now, we’ve added the brand new Dectyl range of metal-detectable synthetic belts and accessories to that list.
Metal detection technology and metal-detectable belts are an important part of food safety, helping companies meet the required Foreign Bodies Risk Assessment (HACCP/ISO 22000) and preventing belt fragments from slipping through as contaminants on food production lines. The Dectyl belt range with synthetic belts and their accessories has a highly detectable component in its composite material. What’s more, these high-performance belts with excellent wear resistance are designed to replace existing non-detectable belts on a 1:1 basis, so it’s quick and easy for end-users to switch over.
How accurate any metal detectable system is depends on many factors, including the size and composition of the food product, conveyor belt speed, belt surface vibration, the type of detector used and how it’s been calibrated. The new Dectyl belt range comes with a unique set of test cards so that the minimum detectable size of a Dectyl belting part for any system can be determined under actual working conditions. With the help of these test cards, the detection system can then be optimised through recalibration or other adjustments. After all, if you’re going to have a metal detectable system, shouldn’t it be as efficient as possible?
