LUMBER

For whole logs, chippers and bales of hay

Lumber metal detectors are ideally suited for scanning whole logs and chipper protection. These large and robust systems are often required to prevent critical and expensive cutting machinery damage. Because the product either comes directly from its source or is recycled, it can potentially contain large metal objects such as fencing wire and nails. Our system easily detects these objects so they can be removed, ensuring they don’t damage other equipment in the production process.

WEB / SURFACE

For wide thin products such as textiles and paper

Web metal detectors are designed for inspecting wide, thin products that are often sheeted or on a roll or web.

Units are typically installed within the production process to protect cutting machinery from potential damage by metal contaminants. For wider applications, the detector may be divided into “Multiscan” sections to assist the operator in retrieving the contaminant.

PIPELINE

For products typically pumped through pipes

Pipeline systems are used for unpackaged items conveyed through a pipe’s production process. Due to the wet product application, we’ve equipped Pipeline metal detectors with BSH Rugged Casing and Stainless Steel construction for IP69K certified protection, which ensures products maintain their quality while maintaining a safe operating environment. Generally, pipeline systems are inserted into existing process lines at the last possible point. In most cases, these products are made of pumped liquids and pastes; however, other applications like sausage meat can use the same principles.

FREEFALL – BULK

For loose freefalling products such as powders and grains

Gravity metal detectors are ideal for incorporating into existing systems where bulk products, such as flour, rice and cereal, are free falling. The product under test is gravity-fed through a pipe system and travels through the detector’s aperture. Gravity systems typically include an automatic reject system for removing contaminated products from the flow, ensuring that only the highest quality products are packaged for distribution.

VENT TUBE

For filled plastic and glass bottles

Vent Tube detectors are ideally suited for integrating into existing bottling lines to detect filler vent tubes. They’re positioned on the outfeed of a bottle processing or filler machine with easy interfacing to line controls and inspection systems. The system can be linked to the current fill level and monitoring equipment to detect a vent tube nozzle within the product accurately.
