Test Samples

To guarantee the integrity of finished goods against metal contamination all metal detection equipment must be routinely calibrated before, during and after production. This testing requirement is demanded by leading retailers to conform to a number of quality protocols found in the food and pharmaceutical industry including BRC, IFS, HACCP, USDA, ISO 9000 and Good Manufacturing Practice (GMP).

Lock can supply a wide range of colour coded test samples suitable for each of our different products. All test samples are carefully assembled under laboratory conditions using certified test spheres in Ferrous, Non-ferrous, Stainless Steel 304, and Stainless Steel 316.
