TECAFORM® FG Blue, TECAFORM® AH ID, and TECAPEEK® ID offer enhanced visual and metal detection capabilities. They offer opportunities to replace metals with plastic components in food processing environments. For example, using TECAFORM® AH ID to replace standard acetal in beef patty forming equipment provides the benefits of plastic over metal while increasing product safety because of its metal detectable nature. Should plastic shards result from missing alignment of the plastic during patty production, any product contamination is likely to be quickly identified and quarantined using standard metal detection equipment prior to packaging, reducing the possibility of costly product recalls. Beverage filling and packaging equipment is another area that can benefit from the use of these food grade products.
