Mettler Toledo Product Inspection Group introduces metal detectors for hazardous locations (HazLoc).

Ideal for manufacturing environments where dust-producing products can create an explosive atmosphere, these cETLus-certified systems adhere to stringent construction standards, fulfilling the requirements for Class II, Division 2 Hazardous locations. By minimizing the risk of explosions in these environments, HazLoc-compliant metal detectors help processors and packers improve worker safety, safeguard their facility, and protect their brand’s reputation while meeting regional compliance requirements.

HazLoc construction is available for gravity-fed metal detectors including the Profile Gravity Flow (GF) series, Profile Throat (T) series, and Profile Super Throat (ST) series, which are suitable for free-falling powders, grains, and granules, including flour, sugar, coffee grains, and others, as well as pharmaceutical, nutraceutical, cosmetic, personal care, and chemical applications.

These HazLoc-compliant metal detectors feature dust-tight enclosures, intrinsically safe components, and qualified accessories. Dust-proof electrical wiring and sealing meets NEC standards. Red color-coded gaskets provide easy identification of HazLoc-compliant components. Construction materials dissipate static electricity to specified grounding locations to ensure static charges are safely removed from the system.

All Mettler-Toledo metal detectors detect and reject metal contamination on production and packaging lines to help processors and packers improve product quality and increase production efficiencies. Featuring multiple ultra-high-tuned frequencies with enhanced noise and vibration immunity, the Profile GF, T, and ST series deliver high inspection sensitivity to consistently find smaller and more-difficult-to-detect metal with virtually no false rejects. Each metal detector’s reject device is custom selected for the specific application. An intuitive touchscreen control panel eases use and facilitates the collection of detailed records and documentation.
