Elephant Pens

The Elephant range of retractable and non-retractable detectable pens from Detectamet are a huge leap forward in Metal and X-Ray detection. Designed from the ground up to create the strongest design that is also ergonomic for the user. Made in Britain from a detectable polymer with a slightly textured finish, the elephant pens are suitable for many applications. Ideal for use in ambient working temperatures and a clean environment, or where a one piece pen is stipulated. The refill installation system has been designed to make it easy to replace the cartridge.

Elephant ‘Cryo’ Pens for Cold-rooms & Freezers

Detectamet’s Metal Detectable & X-Ray Visible Retractable Elephant Pens with Pressurised ‘Cryo’ Ink .

“Pressurised Refill” – Detectamet’s highest grade refill. Ballpoint refill will continue to write until ink has run out in almost all conditions.
Can write upside down – Ordinary ballpoints usually lose the will to write even when held horizontally.
Ideal for use in wet & greasy conditions – Ordinary ballpoints start skipping because the ball won’t rotate properly or grease or water stops conventional ink sticking to the ball, a pressurised ‘cryo’ refill just keeps on working.
Write in very low temperatures – Useful in very cold weather conditions but also useful in commercial cold-storage. Ordinary pen ink will solidify, but a pressurised refill will keep going at minus 20 degrees celsius.

 

HD Retractable Pens

Detectamet applied its years of experience in meeting the needs of the food industry for detectable plastic products by designing and developing its Metal Detectable & X-Ray Visible HD Pen.

The rugged construction means it is resilient and will not break under stress. The refill installation system has been designed to make it easy to replace the cartridge.

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.

 

detectable-economy-penEconomy Retractable Pens

This retractable and detectable pen from Detectamet is designed to satisfy the basic requirements for performance and detectability by Metal and X-Ray monitoring systems used in the food industry.

The pen is shaped and designed with ridges at the point of grip to make them easier to hold firmly or with gloved hands. The sturdy clip also acts as the release to withdraw the nib. This pen enables additional savings because the ink cartridge can be replaced to make further use of the body of the pen.

The polymer is approved for safe contact with food according to the EU and U.S. regulations and the inks are non-toxic, meeting the requirements of ISO12757-2.

This competitively priced retractable pen doesn’t compromise on detectability to help all food companies produce safer food.

Food-Safe-Detectable-Hammer

Detectable Plastic Hammer/Mallet

Food Safe Metal Detectable Plastic Hammer/Mallet incorporating Detectamet Metal Detectable Plastic Head. Our Hammer/Mallet offer high impact, durability and high abrasive resistance.

* Made in the UK to high quality standards.  * Resistant to corrosion and most chemicals.  * Will not fracture, splinter or delaminate.  * Detectamet Detectable Plastic Hammer/ Mallet head is fitted to plastic handle to meet with Food Hygiene Regulations.

Small Detectable Mallet Weights & Dimensions:  * Length = 300mm  * Head = 115mm Wide, 50mm Diameter  * Weight = 330g

Large Detectable Mallet Weights & Dimensions:  * Length = 300mm  * Head = 125mm Wide, 76mm Diameter  * Weight = 746g

Made in England to high quality standards, these soft-faced hammers provide a safe alternative to striking with conventional steel hammers in industrial applications.

The resilient faces shape themselves to the part being struck. Acting as shock absorbers, they spread the force of the blow uniformly, minimising inefficient rebound and damage to the components. Soft faced hammers also reduce noise pollution in the workplace.

However, use of any striking tool carries with it potential risks and requires care to prevent possible personal injury or damage to the tool and workpiece. Never for example use these soft-faced hammers as a non-sparking tool in hazardous areas.
