Minebea Intec has launched Mitus, a new foreign object detection system with the flexible modulation feature MiWave.
With the new metal detection system, the company offers a high-precision inspection solution for detecting foreign objects in almost all applications in the F&B industry.
MiWave is an inspection solution from Minebea Intec that can reliably detect contaminated products of a variety of sizes, shapes and compositions, preventing incorrect rejections and separations. This ensures maximum product safety and efficiency on the production line.
MiWave artificially modulates transmitter waves and intelligently resolves and analyses the receiver spectrum. This enables Mitus to provide maximum detection sensitivity for foreign objects made from ferrous and non-ferrous metals, stainless steels and light metals like aluminium.
Mitus can be easily integrated into existing systems as the inspection solution is available in most standard sizes and as a rectangular, round or compact detection coil, which means it can be integrated even in limited available space. The company says it can be easily combined with other inspection solutions, such as weighing technology and integrated into existing production lines.
Cleaning and maintenance of the metal detector is “easy” as it is made from stainless steel and is therefore protected against pressure jet cleaning. It has smooth, self-drain surfaces, while dead space and rebates have been minimised throughout.
Linus Dellweg, global product manager at Minebea Intec, said: “With Mitus we are offering users a premium metal detection solution: as a critical control point, it ensures that foreign objects are reliably detected despite high and variable product effects”.
