Metal Separators For Injection MoldingSurface Metal Detectors for Conveyor Systems

Surface metal detectors for conveyor belts are electronic devices for detecting the presence of unwanted metal contamination in items moving along a conveyor belt. If you're worried about metal contaminants entering your process, and the conveyed item is fairly flat and no higher than 50 mm, then a surface detector is probably your best choice. Poorly maintained machines, the general wear and tear of the production machines are just a few of the ways that metal can enter your production process, ruin your grinder blades causing you thousands of dollars in production shutdowns.

To remove metals from your production process, a complete and total inspection of preassembled products is required to prevent these metals from leaving the plant and causing further damage. One possible solution involves examining the products at the end of the production line. Since all your products have to be transported to a conveyor belt at one time or another, a surface detector would be ideal for examining them while they are being moved to the conveyor.

Surface detectors are typically installed under the running belt cover. They can detect metal in the products above the running belt cover, but only in products that are not higher than 50 mm. Because they are located under the belt, they are not suitable for inspecting higher products, since their sensitivity decreases as the distance increases. The taller the product the less effective a surface detector will be. Anything higher than 50 mm is best analysed by a tunnel detector.

What We Offer

We offer a variety of surface detectors with varying detection capabilities in various module shapes. Choosing the right surface detector depends on the kind of product, its height and the type and size of metal to be detected. The following surface detectors differ with regard to their overall height, sensitivities and installation conditions.

1. MESEP AR - The AR surface detector is a space saving device with a flat shape and an overall height of only 35 mm. It is availabe in several different shapes with a variety of frequencies. Easy to connect, the AR model is flexible and offers levels of sensitivity starting at 2.0 mm at a distance of 5 mm.

2. MESEP RE - The RE surface detector is a rectangular space saving device with a flat shape and an overall height of only 35 mm. It can detect metal in producsts as wide as 350 mm. Easy to connect, the RE models is versatile and offers sensitivity levels starting at 2.0 mm at a distance of 5 mm.

3. MESEP SP - The SP surface detector is enclosed inisde an aluminum housing. It is contained in a extremely sturdy aluminum housing and has a metal free zone of 0 mm. It can be mounted directly on metal millimeter precise detector widths a space saving device with a flat shape and an overall height of only 35 mm. It offers levels of sensitivity starting at 2.0 mm at a distance of 5 mm.

Surface Metal Detectors

4. MESEP DH - The DH surface detector is a highly sensitive device for detecting metals starting from 1.0 mm at a distance of 10 mm. This unit is capable of monitoring its own operation, it can be used in a metal free zone of 300 mm, and is located inside a sturdy plastic housing.

5. MESEP OA - no pdf file - The OA surface detector is an interlinking locally dissolving module The area is segmented into 26 mm areas. This makes localization of the metals possible. It is extremely easy to localize metal from a flat material flow containing a lot of metal contaminants, i. e., using air jets.
