Quarry metal detection
The MetAlarm TR all-metal detector is ideal for detecting large tramp metal such as digger teeth and manganese wear parts on angled trough conveyors. It is used in a variety of different industries such as wood, plastics, aggregate and mining. The lightweight design proves easy maneuverability and quick installation. In most cases, it can be installed with little or no adjustment to idler spacing. Units can be supplied for belt widths from 20 inches (500 mm) up to 80 inches (2000 mm).
Metal detection for vibratory conveyors
The MetAlarm Model VC Metal Detector has been designed specifically for the wood industry. It offers an all-in-one unit including search coil and metal-free section. It is supplied with a Model 3500 control connected to the search coil that is integrated into the tray’s trough section. When metal is detected, the conveyor and material flow is stopped to allow manual removal of the metal. Audible and visual alarms are available as optional extras.
Higher sensitivity conveyor metal detection
Similar to the Model TR MetAlarm, the Model BR MetAlarm (bridge design) is excellent for detecting tramp metal in burden depths greater than 14 inches (356 mm).
The The transmitter/receiver coil combination is excellent for mineralized materials and also for use when nothing smaller than a certain size metal should be detected. This removes the risk of “nuisance trips” for small metal that will not damage machinery, thereby reducing costly downtime.
Its lightweight design makes it cost efficient to install on most trough belt conveyors.
Higher sensitivity metal detection
The E-Z Tec 9000 range of Metal Detectors incorporates high sensitivity, balanced coil technology for detecting and removing ferrous, non-ferrous and stainless steel metal contaminants, ensuring product purity and machinery protection.
