Thomas & Betts Ty-Rap Cable Ties - Detectable Cable Ties


Published on

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

Metal Detection
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
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.

Thomas & Betts Ty-Rap Cable Ties - Detectable Cable Ties

  1. 1. Because Secret Ingredients Aren’t Always a Good Thing. Detectable Cable Ties Patent pending
  2. 2. Avoid Unpleasant Surprises with Ty-Rap ® Detectable Cable Ties. When you were six, you were thrilled to find the secret decoder ring at the bottom of the cereal box. But since then, you probably don’t think of hidden surprises in food as a good thing. And if you’re employed in food, beverage or pharmaceutical processing, the last thing you want is a consumer finding the trimmed-off end of a cable tie packaged in with your product. In fact, some manufacturing plants in industries sensitive to contamination have banned the use of nylon cable ties in their manufacturing plants, because standard nylon can pass unnoticed through metal detectors, x-ray equipment and standard visual detection systems. Now there’s an alternative to potentially contaminating your product with standard nylon cable ties or paying for expensive stainless steel fasteners. Ty-Rap® Detectable Cable Ties are made from standard nylon or polypropylene, but incorporate a unique, patent-pending compound detectable by metal detectors and x-ray equipment. Their bright blue color makes them easy to spot, and the polypropylene version is buoyant, making it ideal for use in liquid processing areas. Detectable by: • Metal detectors • X-ray equipment • Visual detection systems A piece of Ty-Rap® Detectable Cable Tie Contains a unique, patent-pending compound detectable by metal detectors and x-ray equipment. With Ty-Rap® Detectable Cable Ties, you have all of the advantages of the original Ty-Rap® Cable Tie, including a smooth body with an infinitely adjustable design, highperformance stainless steel locking device for a perfect fit and superior holding power — plus the peace of mind of knowing the integrity of your product is uncompromised.
