Mass Measurement


Combined checkweigher and ­metal detector

October 2015 Mass Measurement

Mettler-Toledo Garvens has launched the new XC CC CombiChecker, a checkweighing and metal detection combination system for food and beverage manufacturers to speed up throughput and reduce footprint on the production line while ensuring high accuracy. Additional benefits of combining the functionalities of checkweighing and metal detection in one space-saving unit include reduced operation time, fewer operating errors and overall line productivity enhancement.

The XC CC CombiChecker reliably verifies that products have the required weight levels and are free of metal contamination to ensure constant product quality. Two rejection pushers separate and sort any under- or overweight and metal-contaminated products. The system features advanced load cell technology to ensure precise weighing. It is a certified Class 3 weighing instrument according to the International Organisation of Legal Metrology (OIML). The metal detector system included in the CombiChecker, has advanced digital signal processing and single-frequency technology to enable the accurate detection of all metals including ferrous, non-ferrous and non-magnetic stainless steel.

The device is highly flexible as it offers a modular design featuring scalable options for manufacturers to handle a wide range of product sizes, shapes and weights. The system can be equipped with varying conveyor belt lengths, and has maximum weighing capacities up to either three or six kilograms. For manufacturers handling sensitive products, standard pushers can be replaced by air jets to gently blow contaminated or under- or overweight products off the conveyor belt.

The United States National Electrical Manufacturers Association (NEMA) has certified the XC CC CombiChecker with the International Protection rating IP65, verifying that the machine is extremely water resistant and can be hygienically cleaned. The IP65 rating and the open design of the conveyor frame support compliance with hazard analysis critical control point (HACCP) guidelines. All parts are made from food-quality materials that are extremely stable, inert, taint- and taste-free, ensuring there is no potential for product contamination.
