Compact Metal Separators
We offer three types of compact metal separator devices that can be categorized in terms of sensitivity and material throughput levels:
1) An analog or standard metal separator sensitive enough to detect metals parts starting at 0.5 mm and are capable of handling material
throughput levels of 300 to 8000 I/h.
2) A digital metal separator for the removal of metal parts at a higher level of sensitivity starting at 0.4 mm and are capable of handling material throughput levels of 300 to 8000 I/h.
3) A digital metal separator that can achieve levels of sensitivity starting at 0.3 mm due to a new powerful digital interference suppression capability that prevents environmental conditions from disturbing the metal detection process. These units are capable of handling material throughput levels of 300 to 8000 I/h.
Standard Metal Separator
Our analog metal separator is ideal for those applications in the plastic, food, chemical, and pharmaceutical industries where free falling material falls from a height of 600 mm. The separator is designed to remove magnetic and non magnetic metal impurities in free falling raw material ranging in size from 0.5 to 2.0 mm. These separators are available in diameters of 35, 50, 70 and 100 mm.
The compact standard metal separator is easy to use, requires very little maintenance and can be serviced and checked out in a matter of minutes. Metal detection is activated by the pressing of a test button, while the sensitivity levels of the separator can be adjusted by simply pressing either a + or - button.
How The Standard Metal Separator Works
Plastic raw material enters the metal separator in a vertical free fall of a maximum height of 600 mm. Once inside the housing of the separator the raw material passes an electronic metal detector. When metal is detected, an electrical impulse is sent to the computerized processor which controls a magnetic valve and a pnematic cylinder. The pneumatic cylinder is connected in the flap which changes its position after metal is detected. When the flap changes its position to a "metal detected position", the metal free raw material flows out of the side outlet flange which is connected to a box that collects the metal contaminated material. After a short separation time, the flap turns back into its original position. If your raw material is expensive, we recommend that you install a small diameter separator to make sure that the loss of metal free material is minimized. See Standard Specifications
Digital Metal Separator
Our digital metal separator is ideal for those applications in the plastic, food, chemical, and pharmaceutical industries that require higher levels of sensitivity than provided by our standard analog models. The digital separator can remove metal particles starting at 0.4 mm and will remove those particles at a higher rate of reliability than its analog counterpart. The digital separator uses a highly sensitive control unit and provides greater protection against metal contamination, is more automated due to its multifunction panel. Instead of using a potentiometer like the standard analog extractor, this device has greater self monitoring capabilities and provides better protection against environmental conditions that can adversely affect the metal detection process.
The digtital standard metal separator is easy to use, requires very little maintenance and can be fully serviced in a matter of minutes. Metal detection is activated by the pressing of a test button, while the sensitivity levels of the separator can be adjusted by simply pressing either a + or - button. All you need to do is provide a supply power and air. See Digital Specifications
M-Pulse Metal Separator
At the top of the metal detection scale, is the M-Pulse generation of metal separators. To reach higher levels of sensitivity and reliability
than standard analog and digital models, the M-Pulse units use a very powerful digital PC board. The M-Pulse unit is normally recommended
for use in the food industry where the demand for great sensitivity is much higher. In the plastic industry, the demand can even be
higher. For these reasons, more and more processors expect more than a standard metal detection solution. Since even the smallest
metal particles can damage a food or plastic processing machine, most processors are looking to the new M-Pulse generation as a possible
solution. With the highest levels of sensitivity on the market, and capable of being updated to keep up with the latest in software
development, the M-Pulse units of fast becoming the metal detectors of choice.
No Faulty Metal Detection
With higher levels of sensitivity comes the problem of detecting metal where there is none. Our metal separators greately reduce faulty detection by effectively eliminating environmental conditions that can disturb the metal detection process.
No Calibration Required
Our digital models are calibration free. They will maintain their levels of sensitivity for their entire service life without any readjustment whatsoever.
All of our metal detectors are equipped with self-diagnostic capabilities, which makes them less prone to breakdowns. To minimize the risk of a malfunction, regular functional checks are self-automated and malfunctions will trigger an acoustic or visual alarm alerting you to the problem. See M-Pulse Specifications
