Thermo Scientific Sentinel 1000 Selectscan Metal Detector is designed to quickly and safely detect objects 25% smaller in volume than legacy systems

Detection of foreign objects such as metals is a high priority for food processors, especially when in 2019 alone the United States Department of Agriculture reported that 17 million pounds of food were impacted by recalls due to “extraneous material.”

The Thermo Scientific Sentinel 1000 Selectscan Metal Detector system features two technologies intended to help food and personal care manufacturers achieve a higher level of safety and quality.

Selectscan enables the user to select the ideal frequency, from 50 to 1000 kHz, and is designed to optimize the probability of detecting ferrous, non-ferrous and stainless steel foreign objects.

Autolearn rapidly guides the user through product set up to optimize operational efficiencies and detection performance to support plant production goals.

Combined, these features raise the bar for safety, reducing the risk of costly contamination events, scrap, rework and recalls.

As part of the Sentinel suite of metal detection products, the Sentinel 1000 Selectscan Metal Detector is a cost-effective solution for manufacturers who value consumer safety and brand protection.
