MDC | Metal Detector

In the global food industry, the need for continuous improvement in product safety is increasing – metal is one of the most common sources of impurities that come into contact with food. The installation of a first-class metal detector system is indispensable to reduce the risk and to be able to carry out an appropriate cause analysis.

GILLENKIRCH can look back on a long success story and has the expertise with regard to the industrial handling of potatoes and carrots worldwide. The events in Canada in connection with the contamination of the potato harvest in 2014, during which a small group of farmers in the Canadian province of Prince Edward Island deliberately put small needles into whole potatoes, prompted GILLENKIRCH to bring an advanced solution for the industry onto the market. GILLENKIRCH has invested in the development of a metal detector system with a high degree of precision and a sophisticated design to achieve a higher sensitivity and an improved removal of metal contamination in whole products.
