Thermo Fisher Scientific: Thermal shock-resistant metal detector

Using a new case design and a proprietary aperture filling technique, Thermo Fisher Scientific’s APEX HD is a long-life, heavy-duty (HD) wash down metal detector that goes significantly beyond traditional IP69K ratings (the international standard for high pressure, high temperature wash down), and is able to withstand extreme temperature cycling typically experienced in fresh food processing and sanitation environments.

Metal detectors operating in the extreme conditions needed for meat, poultry, seafood, dairy have a life expectancy of only a few years, with large repair bills a frequent occurrence.  The APEX HD has a projected operating life of 10 years or more in this environment, which has been validated by a third-party laboratory.

The APEX HD’s new case design and a proprietary aperture filling technique that gives it additional robustness and stability.  The control panel also has a one-way vent allowing any trapped humidity to escape.  The HD capability is available on both the APEX 500 and 300 models.
