A century-old milling company inSuffolkhas invested in a state-of-the-art metal detector from Lock Inspection Systems.

C. Marston & Sons is a family owned flour milling and cereal processing company.  It has been operating for 103 years and is based in Icklingham in the heart of the East Anglian wheat-growing region.  Today C. Marston & Sons supplies a range of quality bread, biscuit and starch flours for food manufacturers in both theUKand mainlandEurope.

As a company, C. Marston & Sons takes product quality extremely seriously and continually assesses its production lines to ensure that flour is manufactured to the highest possible standards.  As part of this mindset, the company recently installed an INSIGHT VF metal detection system from product inspection experts, Lock Inspection Systems.

The INSIGHT VF is designed to detect the presence of metal contamination in product which is flowing freely under gravity.  A fast-acting sealed flap reject mechanism accurately removes ferrous, non-ferrous and high-grade stainless steel contaminants from the product flow.  In order to ensure the highest possible levels of detection Lock specified a High Frequency system.   In optimum conditions this detector can identify contaminants as small as 0.6mm ferrous, 0.7mm non-ferrous and 0.8mm stainless steel.

C. Marston & Sons verify the INSIGHT VF via its integral test kit which allows users to prove that the metal detector search head and rejection mechanism are both working as desired.  The company is BRC accredited and use the INSIGHT VF’s USB data port and OPTIX management software to compile detailed reports and log all tests performed.

Managing Director Duncan Marston commented ‘We are proud of the products which we supply to our customers and the Lock metal detector gives us both quality assurance and brand protection.  The INSIGHT VF was easy to integrate into our line due to its compact design and has quickly become a key part of our milling process’.
