Bulk Goods Metal Detectors

Bulk Goods Metal DetectorsBulk goods such as spices, rice, peas, corn, milk powder and flour can become easily contaminated with metal as they fall from one place to another. To prevent this, metal detectors are often inserted into the pipe to monitor these goods as they fall freely through the pipe. The pipeline must be opened to accomodate the detector, and where the opening is not large enough, only a detection coil will be used. This coil generates an electrical impulse to warn production operators about any possible metal contamination. Where it is possible, we recommend a downstream separating filter so that contaminated material can be removed automatically.

There are three bulk good detectors to choose from:
MESEP GF | MPULSE GF | Digital Plus GF | MPUlSE GF Compact

Design of a large scale metal separator almost always includes three main components: A ring shaped metal detector, an ejector mechanism, and a two way separator unit. Once metal is detected, the product flow is briefly diverted at an angle towards the reject outlet. Our detectors are available in various diameter sizes from 100 - 350 mm. Material throughput ranges from 20,000 – 290,000 t/h and sensitivity levels range from 0.5 – 2.5 mm. Depending on the level of sensitivity you require, we offer three possible solutions:

MESEP GF

The MESEP® GF was designed for removal of magnetic and nonmagnetic metallic contaminants in downpipes with high material throughputs. Despite the large ring coil opening of 150 mm or 200 mm, this model can achieve maximum levels of sensitivity. Operation of these units is very simple and they are easy to put into production. All required settings are made by key input. After all the settings are inputed, all temperature variations and environmental factors will be readjusted automatically. For particularly cirtical or frequently changing bulk materials, we also offer the MPULSE units which can eliminate environmental and electrical disturbances from the food itself.

Digital Plus GF

The Digital Plus GF was designed for removal of magnetic and nonmagnetic metallic contaminants in vertical pipes with high material throughputs. Despite the large ring coil opening of 150 mm or 200 mm, this model can achieve maximum levels of sensitivity. Operation of these units is very simple and they are easy to put into production. All required settings are made by key input. After all the settings are inputed, all temperature variations and environmental factors will be readjusted automatically. For particularly cirtical or frequently changing bulk materials, we also offer the MPULSE units which can eliminate environmental and electrical disturbances from the food itself.

MPULSE GF Compact

Typically, the GF compact types are used in gravity feed pipes and provide high performance in detecting magnetic and non-magnetic metals. As the bulk material falls through the metal detector, the reject flap EX-S removes the smallest metal objects from the stream of flowing goods. The GF compact models have a low assembly height and are designed for height limited installations. With a maintenance free design and high quality construction, choose the compact GF model for reliable operation in the most challenging industrial environments.

Main Features

  • Extremely sturdy assembly rack made of stainless steel.
  • Lowest knock sensitivity in detection coil due to high quality encapsulation.
  • Simple to operate and commission.
  • Calibration-free sensor coil.

Since food is often electrically conductive, our MPULSE detectors come highly recommended to reduce the effect of these electrical disturbances.
