Metal detector fault repairs

Metal Detectors have built-in fault monitoring systems to advise users and engineers of issues that could affect the operation of the equipment. Detection of a fault will be displayed on the user interface control panel or in the log, accompanied by a highly visible lamp and an optional audible warning.

If you have a metal detector that has a fault and needs a repair, or you require metal detector validation or verification, then contact Stevens for support. We provide metal detector repairs across the UK and Ireland.

Planned preventative maintenance for your metal detectors

It is always better to prevent issues than to correct them once they occur. Stevens can support your planned preventative maintenance plan with scheduled visits for metal detector performance validation and verification checks.

Organising a service contract with us can guarantee regular maintenance visits from our team to keep on top of these procedures for your equipment. Get in touch with us to enquire about our contracts.

Setting up your first PPM plan?

  • A good PPM plan should aim to limit wear and tear on equipment which might otherwise result in metal contamination.
  • It is mandatory to keep documented records of PPM activity, together with records of any necessary corrective actions that took place.
  • Equipment MUST be maintained in line with the original manufacturer’s recommendations.

    What is metal detector validation?2023-05-04T15:56:59+01:00

    Metal detector performance validation aims to ascertain that the piece of equipment meets specified objectives typically set by the British Retail Consortium (BRC), or Supermarkets. Equipment may need re-validating if any modifications have occurred in your processes or with your products, for example, the product size, packaging, or material.

    What is metal detector verification?2023-05-04T16:00:17+01:00

    Metal detector verification is a periodic prerequisite that verifies that the equipment is operating as expected. Verification is usually carried out annually and required as part of audits by supermarkets or other regulatory bodies.
