NEW Fibracon® Detectaflon PTFE – x-ray and metal detectable polymer



The detection of foreign bodies during the processing and packaging of food products plays a fundamental role in ensuring safety and quality.

To help protect against foreign substance contamination, food, beverage, pharmaceutical and other contamination sensitive industries use automated detection in their production lines.

While metal detection has traditionally dominated in automated detection, the flexibility and functionality of x-ray detection is driving the inclusion of double detection systems.

Röchling Fibracon Ltd. have responded to the demands of the market by developing a PTFE material that is detectable by both X-ray and Metal Detection equipment.
