Detectable Tags Now Ready Numbered

The new Identity Tags from Detectamet are now available in sequentially numbered sets of 100. They are made from strong metal detectable plastic and are used for identifying equipment and systems within food production environments.

York, United Kingdom, November 07, 2013 --( The Detectamet ID tag allows small traces of label and tag fragments to be detected and rejected during the food production process. By using them in a food factory the risk of food contamination is much reduced.

They are now available with a number engraved into the surface of the label area and supplied in batches of 100 tags sequentially numbered from 1 to 100. “This new service offers our customers so many options,” said Detectamet’s CEO Sean Smith “In addition to off-the-shelf sequential numbering we can have the tags engraved with other number sequences, letters and numbers or incorporate a logo or a company name.”

The tags are used throughout food processing facility to identify, log and manage equipment. In addition to the good housekeeping benefits they can help within the HACCP and traceability management systems especially now that they are available sequentially numbered.

The tags help to fulfil the requirements of health and safety legislation such as LOLER (Lifting Operations and Lifting Equipment Regulations 1998) and PUWER (Provision and Use of Work Equipment Regulations 1998). For example they could be used to indicate when a piece of machinery is due for inspection and servicing.

The label area is 88mm x 63mm (3 ½” x 2 ½”) and the strap is 190mm (7 ½“) long. So there is a generous area for writing notes or instructions and the long strap can be used to secure the tag around a variety of fastening points. Detectamet’s Permanent or wipe off marker pens can be used to mark the label area with instructions, and the sturdy fastening is able to lock the strap securely into the label.

These metal detectable tags are supplied in four bundles of twenty five. The tags can be ordered in one of a range of eight colours so that specific colours can be used to mark specific applications or locations, or be used as task indicators.

This ubiquitous product has many uses including: Store and security checking; equipment tagging; wire, cable and pipe work coding; machine isolation; drum, pallet and container tracking. All Detectamet products can now be engraved as required.
