They are most widely used throughout the industry to detect any trace element of metal that may have got into the food during the production process. 

What are the most commonly used types of metal detector used in the food industry?

Modern metal detectors by and large fall into two main categories: systems with a general purpose head, and systems with a ferrous-in foil search head. Metal detectors with a general purpose search head are capable of detecting both ferrous and non-ferrous metals, as well as stainless steel, in fresh and frozen products, whether that be wrapped or unwrapped. Systems utilising a ferrous-in foil search head are capable of detecting only ferrous metals within foil-wrapped fresh and frozen products.

A metal detector is an electronic instrument which detects the presence of unwanted metal particles within your food products.

A checkweigher is an automatic or manual machine for checking the weight of packaged products. It is normally found at the end of a production process and is used to ensure that the weight of a pack of the product  is within specified limits. Any packs that are outside the tolerance are taken out of line automatically.
