The Detectamet brand is internationally recognised and has gained a positive reputation as a prolific designer, manufacturer and distributor of detectable plastic tools and equipment. These can be identified by Metal and X-Ray inspection machines installed on food processing lines. If the tools or equipment fall into the food processing equipment it is possible for the resulting pieces to be discovered and the contaminated food is then rejected before dispatch. This reduces the risk that costly food recalls will have to be initiated.
Detectamet is an ISO 9001:2008, ISO 14001 and ISO 18001 accredited company that have been collectively supplying the Food, Pharmaceutical and related industries for over 20 years from the United Kingdom.
Detectamet’s key focus is the design, manufacture and supply of X-Ray and metal detectable products. The Detectamet brand is a global leader offering an extensive range of patent protected designs globally.
Detectamet tools and equipment are used by many leading food producers that specify them in order to strengthen their GMP and HACCP management systems, thus demonstrating due diligence in food safety and protection of their corporate brand reputation.
It is a basic requirement of the majority of approved food safety certification schemes, including GFSI, IFS and BRC that detection systems are in place to prevent the production and distribution of physically contaminated products. Detectamet’s stationery, tools, equipment and materials are designed to replace their non-detectable equivalents used in food production areas. Many of these items have been 'lost in process' and later found by customers when they have consumed the contaminated food causing loss of reputation and expensive recalls.
In addition to the tried and tested detectable equipment, Detectamet is continually developing new and innovative solutions. These provide answers to the challenges of reducing the risks of foreign body contamination in food and pharmaceutical products.
The Detectamet range incorporates several thousand designs, including tools and accessories based on metal detectable plastics, stainless steels and aluminium. The company also supplies engineering companies with machine detectable plastics that can be used to manufacture parts fitted into food processing machinery.
