The body and cap of our DetectaUV Ultra Violet Marker are moulded from high-density polyethylene, containing a non-toxic metal detectable additive. This compound can be detected by correctly calibrated in-line metal detection systems.
This UV ink is very permanent when used on plastic, it penetrates the surface of the plastic, it is invisible to the naked eye but is illuminated by ultraviolet light. Potential uses include the security marking machinery and other assets. DetectaUV pens are compliant with EU and FDA food contact legislation.
Kosher certified product - please see the Kosher certificate in the technical download tab above.
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.
An impact resistant product is made from a plastic or rubber that is designed not to shatter or snap. These materials make food production items safer and reduces the risk of that product / material becoming a foreign body contaminant.
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.
