Milling company C. Marston & Sons has bought a new metal detector from Lock Inspection Systems

Suffolk-based C. Marston & Sons supplies bread, biscuit and starch flours for food manufacturers in the UK and Ireland. The company has installed an Insight VF metal detection system from Lock.

The Insight VF is designed to detect the presence of metal contamination in product which is flowing freely under gravity. According to Lock, the detector can identify contaminants as small as 0.6mm ferrous, 0.7mm non-ferrous and 0.8mm stainless steel.  It incorporates a sealed flap reject mechanism to remove ferrous, non-ferrous and high-grade stainless steel contaminants from the product flow.

C. Marston & Sons managing director Duncan Marston said: “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.”
