During the current and ever-changing health crisis, we would like to ensure our customers that support for all areas of our business will be continued. In early March we began an extensive ‘work from home’ program that encompasses sales, marketing, administration, research, design and service in order to help provide safety for our employees and efficient support for our customers. We ask for your patience as calls and requests are processed in a different manner but we will find new and innovative ways to provide the excellent level of support that you deserve.

Installing the right equipment for your application
Noise is a common occupational hazard in food processing factories, from vibrating panels to mechanical rotors, stators, fans, conveyors, pumps, compressors, palletizers, and fork lifts. Additionally, some less audible disturbances can impair the performance of highly sensitive metal detection equipment, the most overlooked being electromagnetic interference (EMI/RFI) noise generated by ground loops and electric motor drives.
Eric Garr, regional sales manager at Fortress Technology examines the cause and effect of these disturbances and the measures that can be implemented to reduce noise interference.
Eric Garr, Regional Sales Manager of Fortress Technology, explains why bespoke inspection equipment is often best – whatever the size of your business – and dispels six of the key myths surrounding customization.
