Function of Metal Detector:

The metal detector GLS with closed detection head and rectangular opening is mainly used to analyze piece goods and bulk material on conveyors or material chutes. It detects all magnetic and non-magnetic metal contaminations (steel, stainless steel, aluminum) – even if enclosed in the product. On detection of metal, a signal device and a separation system can be activated or a signal can be sent to process controlling.

The closed design of the detector has the advantage to guarantee high metal sensibility within the detection head. Consequently, this metal detector is mainly used for highly precise detection tasks (e. g. in the food industry). GLS Metal detectors can be combined with numerous separation systems (air blast, pusher, etc.).


Additional Features of Metal Detector:

– Individual size adaption to customer specific requirements

– Can be installed on all levels

– High mechanical stability and noise immunity

– Largely insensitive to vibrations, hits and temperature change


Applications of Metal Detector:

– Quality control for incoming and outgoing goods in the food industry according to IFS, BRC, HACCP, ISO 22000 etc.

– Machinery protection for fruit and vegetable processing
