Metal Detectable & X-Ray Visible Squeegees



The Squeegee is a very efficient tool for clearing moisture from flat surfaces, and can be found wherever water is used for cleaning large surfaces or where condensation occurs and needs to be removed.

The food industry uses them extensively and tends to favour the light handling of plastic squeegees. With these benefits come a number of challenges, not least of which is the risk that a plastic squeegee mislaid in the food process creates the need for detectability by metal and X-ray inspection systems.

To work efficiently a squeegee needs to combine the right balance of rigidity and flexibility. The flexibility helps to form a seal across the profile of the surface being cleared of moisture, and the rigidity enables the formation of a resilient barrier that will clear the water quickly.detectable-squeegee

The Detectamet Squeegees incorporate the metal and X-ray detectability in the rigid and in the flexible parts

without compromising their efficient performance. Whichever inspection system is used when contamination occurs it can be detected and the product rejected before it triggers an expensive product recall.

  • Metal detectable and X-ray visible
  • Less weight
  • Resilient
  • Two sizes – For hand cleaning: 300mm (11 3/4″) blade with 173mm (6 3/4″) handle and for floor
  • cleaning: 600mm (23 2/3″) blade with socket for long broom handle
  • Available in high food contrast blue.
