While plastics are utilized extensively from household items to industrial machinery parts, undetectability of plastics by metal detectors in their natural form pose a great risk, especially in food processing industries.
Keeping this concern in mind, ATIC has developed MetaDetect, which enhances the properties of natural plastics to make it easily detected by conventional metal detectors.
With the loading level as low as 10%, it can detect a plastic fragment as small as 4 mm

How MDetect Works
When a particle of plastic filled with Metal Detectable Materbatch passes through the coil arrangement of metal detector, the high frequency field is disturbed under one coil, changing the voltage generated by a few microvolts. The state of perfect balance is lost and the output no longer zero. The resulting signal is processed and amplified. This phenomenon helps detection of unwanted plastic contaminant.
