CESCO’s line of sanitary magnetic probes (magprobes) are designed for sampling products for metal contamination. These custom sized units are composed of the most powerful rare earth magnets available on the consumer market and encased in 316 stainless steel tubing. Magprobes are manufactured to the highest sanitary standards that customers have come to expect from CESCO’s 70+ years of working in the food industry. They are lightweight, easily handled and cleaned quickly. Magprobes should ideally be placed at critical points throughout the production line. They are most effective with products that are free flowing powders, granules or liquids. The Magprobes attract ferrous contaminants and work hardened stainless steel as the product flows past. These contaminants are then removed at the end of the processing cycle and easily removed to be sent off for analysis.
