Metal Detector Test Ball 20 mm

The ICTeststick 20.0 mm Ferrous (Chrome) Test Ball


Our Test Ball is designed to comply with the magnetic phase interference (System Shock) test. It is designed to be used on 'Conveyor' or 'Drop-Through' metal detector systems. 


This large metal test should be carried out at least once per shift to ensure that after a large piece of metal has passed through a metal detector, it can 'recover' and continue to operate correctly.


This is now a Good Manufacturing Practice (GMP) Requirement specified by most leading supermarket retailers as a test procedure for all of their food product suppliers.

Research &



Intensive research to find a safer material for teststick housings resulted in destructive testing of plastic materials. 

These tests showed that if broken acrylic and some other plastics had a tendency to splinter and shatter. The plastic leaving the parent material became incredibly difficult to find once embedded in food products. 



In these days of increasing litigation and Health & Safety compliance our high impact, shatter resistant, translucent       ICTeststicks are designed to supersede all existing brittle acrylic teststicks to help minimise the risk of shattering your reputation!
