At Interpack 2011 in Düsseldorf, in hall 13 at stand A90, S+S Separation and Sorting Technology will show a range of product inspection systems based on magnet, X-ray and inductive technology. The MAGBOX FOOD magnet system and the RAYCON X-ray scanner have been completely redesigned and the new metal detector head, SOLUTOR-HF, will make its debut.
All S+S development and design and the majority of the manufacturing operations is done in the head office facility ensuring long-term reliability and continuity of both development, spares and customer service.
With RAYCON S+S has focused on sophisticated, reliable X-ray technology and sourcing components both within the company and from proven suppliers. RAYCON meets the highest quality demanded by the food and packaging industry and the range of available options means we can satisfy a wide range of applications, whatever the product or site conditions.
Every S+S product is high quality and the latest MAGBOX FOOD inline magnet separator is no exception. It guarantees efficient separation of fine ferrous and magnetised stainless-steel contaminants from bulk food materials. Recent updates have focused on detail improvements, e.g. a latched catch for removing magnet cores from the stainless-steel casing, and stainless-steel star screws with captive swing bolts for opening the system.
The completely new metal detector head, SOLUTOR-HF, has as standard three operating frequencies (low, medium, high) and is therefore suitable for universal application. SOLUTOR-HF features improved sensitivity, especially for stainless steels, and is particularly suited for high sensitivity detection tasks in the food industry. Its sturdy and compact system design with smooth surfaces and the proven GENIUS+ Control Unit integrated into the detector housing guarantees compliance with the most demanding hygiene standards.
Franz Penn, food industry product manager, says of the new equipment: “Our objective is to provide high-quality, premium systems. We believe this can best be achieved by producing the systems ourselves, and by a particular emphasis on the reliability and quality of sourced components. Our new systems therefore are not only ‘Made in Germany’, but predominantly ‘Made in Bavaria’.”
