Frozen food sales in the U.S. and Europe have nearly doubled, a trend that is expected to continue for the foreseeable future. Consumers are looking for quick and easy meal options that require very little prep time as their schedules become full from juggling work, taking care of their familes, and other commitments they may have.
The markets growing reliance on ready-to-cook frozen foods means food processors must increase food production without compromising safety. Fortunately, newtechmologiesmakefrozen food safety in a rapidly changing environment attainable.
The Thermo Scientific Sentinel 1000 Selectscan Metal Detector is an example of these new technologies. It alleviates many of the aforementioned challenges by offering a high-performing, flexible contaminant detection solution. Selectscan, the latest metal detection technology, is the use of one fully flexible frequency per product application ranging from 50 to 1000 kHz. By using a unique, optimized frequency for each product, a higher level of metal detection can be reached for all products because there is no need to compromise by choosing a single fixed frequency for all.
Since the Selectscan technology can detect at any frequency from 50 to 1000 kHz it can be used for a wide range of product effect compensation for any product. By dialing-in the best frequency for the application, small metal contaminants can be reliably detected that previously could not be found using a single-frequency device. The Sentinel 1000 metal detector is a powerful single frequency metal detection solution, hosting the features and flexibility needed to keep frozen food safe in the new normal.
