Desktop calculators are an essential production area item but have long been identified as a foreign body contamination risk. Dropped and broken calculators can spread undetectable fragments within food, resulting in consumer hazard, product recall, penalties, or even lawsuits for the food manufacturer.
The BST DetectaCalc® solves this problem with metal detectable and x-ray visible casing and buttons. Internal circuitry and wiring is also potentially detectable by metal detections systems, making the BST DetectaCalc® Desktop Calculator a comprehensively detectable plastic calculator for food production areas.
This product is designed for food production from the outset with minimal germ traps, fully detectable food grade casing and buttons, a large display, and large buttons.
• Dual detectable casing • Dual power system optional AAA battery • Dual detectable buttons • Sealed unit with minimal germ traps • 50 Step Check & Correct function • Strong, Durable and hygienic construction • Compatible with HACCP processes • Displays due diligence in preventing contamination • Includes all standard mathematical functions • Bright blue colour for easy visual identification
A metal detectable product is made fully from detectable materials and has the potential to be detected on most industrial metal detection systems. These materials may be metallic or plastic/rubber with special ferromagnetic additives.
An x-ray visible product is made fully from x-ray visible materials. These may be metallic or plastic/rubber with special high density additives.
BST have 30 years’ experience in the design and manufacture of metal
detectable and x-ray visible plastic components. Examples of
bespoke projects include rubber seals, gaskets and extrusions,
as well as pre-loaded vacuum bread depanner belts featuring metal
detectable suction cups and retaining clips.
With a wide selection of food grade detectable raw materials
to choose from, a solution to your problem is never far away.
BST Detectable Products reduce the risk of foreign body contamination in hygiene
critical environments, such as food and drink, pharmaceutical or
cosmetic manufacturing plants.
Preventing foreign body contamination is at the frontline of food safety and
detectable products manufactured by BST not only help toward this goal but
also comply with international regulations and complement a
company's HACCP systems.
