HD Detectable Pen

To mark the company’s tenth anniversary, Detectamet has applied its years of experience in meeting the needs of the food industry for detectable plastic products by designing and developing its new Metal Detectable & X-Ray Visible HD Pen.

The rugged construction means it is resilient and will not break under stress. This long life pen will easily outlive a writing endurance of over 10 kilometres (6.2 miles) of ink and the refill installation system has been designed to make it easy to replace the cartridge.

For use in wet and greasy work areas it has a matt, slightly textured finish which is none-the-less easy to clean. The natural grip area has a shaped indentation that has been formed with ridges. This not only reduces the possibility of the pen slipping back through the fingers but it also reduces any tendency for it to rotate, especially when the hands are wet.

The detectable HD Pen is available in three styles; the traditional design with a pocket clip and a sturdy attachment point for a lanyard; with no clip but with a lanyard attachment point; and also a third option with no clip or attachment point. Each of the three styles is available in a range of 8 striking colours.

  • Metal Detectable
  • X Ray Visible
  • Sits well in the hand with a natural balance and feel
  • Slightly textured finish for easy grip in wet and greasy environments
  • Rugged construction
  • Stainless Steel return spring mechanism to give continuous performance
  • 8 housing colours – Blue, Black, Red, Green, Yellow, White, Purple & Orange
  • 3 housing styles – with Pocket Clip, without Pocket Clip or with Lanyard Attachment
  • Can be used as part of HACCP
  • Easily refillable.

The Detectamet Metal Detectable Pen housing is conforming to the standard Regulation EC 1935/2004 on materials and articles intended to come into contact with food and repealing Directives 80/590/EEC and 89/109/EEC.

The New Detectable HD Pen can be easily refilled with Detectamet’s range of ballpoint pen refills.

Standard refills made to ISO12757-2 (The International Organisation for Standardisation published standards for ball point and roller ball pens).
