Metal Detectable Labels
Food & Pharmaceutical Industries

Metal detectable labels are used in the food, pharmaceutical, and other industries in which it is important to detect product contamination.  DuraLabel's metal detectable label tape makes labels that include a metal detectable component.  This allows label fragments, and even small traces of the label, to be detected by a metal detector during the production or QA process, reducing the likelihood of contamination from a label reaching a customer.

Metal Detectable Labels in the Food Industry

Metal detectable labels are used throughout the facility and the production process.  They are used to identify production batches, work-in-progress, and testing status.  Metal detectable labels are used on:

  • Shelves
  • Racks
  • Pallets
  • Drums
  • Boxes
  • Tays
  • Bags
  • ... and other containers. 

They are also used to identify vats, conveyors, mixers, moveable equipment, and other types equipment, tools, controls, wire and cables, instruments and components.

Equipment that is subject to wash-down or cleaning should be always marked using metal detectable labels. No matter how good the label is, there is always a potential for small pieces of the label to break off during the cleaning process. Should these get into product they will be detected before becoming part of the product shipped to customers.  Recalls are devastating, using metal detectable labels helps prevent contamination that can lead to a recall.
