Thomas & Betts metal detectable cable ties are designed for the food and beverage processing industries to meet safety standards set by HACCP (Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Point) to minimize the risk of contamination. Detectable cable ties are nylon based cable ties with metal content dispersed throughout the head and strap. A unique manufacturing process, involving the inclusion of a metallic pigment, enables even small "cut-off" sections on the detectable cable tie to be detected by standard metal detection and X-ray equipment. The unique blue colour assists in the visual detection and greatly reduces the risk of contamination and costly recalls.
Detectable Cable Ties, Thomas & Betts Ty-Rap - Detection Methods
Thomas & Betts Ty-Rap metal content detectable cable ties have been tested and are rated at 1.5mm diameter ferrous sphere setting. Therefore sensitive enough to be picked up by nearly every metal detector in service.
X Ray Detection
X-Rays are the future of the detection industry, depending on the density of the product being verified, Thomas & Betts Ty-Rap metal content detectable cable ties reach an impressive differential of between 200-2000 on the X-Ray grey scale.
Visual detection systems detect surface irregularities and volume changes. This method of visual detection is often used in beverage and chemical processing plants. The bright blue colour ensures an easy visual detection of Thomas & Betts Ty-Raps.
