Metal detector/separators

Developed for both magnetic steels and nonmagnetic metals is a series of metal detectors and detector/separators. Models are specifically designed to monitor free-flowing, gravity-fed products, pneumatically-conveyed materials, products on conveyor belts and even liquids, pastes and slurries in pipes. Detector-separators use electronic sensors and air-powered rejection systems to remove contaminants quickly and minimize product loss. Sensitivity is adjustable, and a programmable effect compensation feature suppresses false signals caused by product or by nonmetallic particles, the co. reports.
