Thermo Fisher to display first-of-its-kind metal detector at PACK EXPO

PACK EXPO attendees can see a wide array of innovative inspection, detection and check-weighing technology in action at the Thermo Fisher Scientific booth (C-2200) at  PACK EXPO Las Vegas 2019, Sept. 23-25. Thermo Fisher will demonstrate a range of solutions for both food and pharmaceutical product inspection.

A key highlight at the booth will be the powerful Thermo Scientific Sentinel multiscan metal detector, a first-of-its-kind multiscan system that provides a high probability of detecting metal foreign objects in food to support optimal food safety. Advanced multiscan multi-frequency technology, pioneered by Thermo Fisher, allows users to choose five user-adjustable frequencies at a time, enabling it to perform like five metal detectors in one.

“When we demonstrate Sentinel, customers can immediately experience how intuitive it is to use and the difference that multiscanning can make in finding metal foreign objects. This is especially challenging in applications including meat, bread, dairy, and other applications with high product effect,” said Bob Ries, lead product manager, metal detection and X-ray inspection for Thermo Fisher.

In addition to the Sentinel multiscan metal detector, Thermo Fisher will showcase solutions for a range of food and pharmaceutical product inspection challenges during the event at the Las Vegas Convention Center, including:
