Metal Detectors for Conveyor Systems

Foremost Metal Detector

Metal detectorsfor conveyor systems are basically electronic devices designed for detecting unwanted metals in a product on a conveyor belt. Reliable metal detection depends on a number of factors including product effect, size and shape of metal contaminants, type and orientation of metal contaminants, metal detector opening size, and operation conditions.. When choosing the right metal detector for a conveyor belt system, the most important factor to consider is the shape and size of the product being conveyed. We offer two possible solutions for installing a metal detection system in a conveyor belt system: tunnel and surface detectors. While tunnel detectors are best suited for taller products that range in height from 50 mm or higher, surface detectors are best for those products that are basically flat and no higher than 50 mm.
