How the Gravity Feed Metal Detector Works:
For free falling powder and bulk products.
Once installed in a gravity feed pipeline, bulk material falls through the metal detector. If any metallic contaminant, magnetic or non-magnetic is detected, the reject flap engages to promptly separate and exit the contaminant from the product stream.
Product touching parts are made according to FDA food-grade quality standards. As bulk material flows through the metal detector, reject flaps promptly separate even the smallest metal contaminants from the product stream.
Maintenance-free design and high-quality construction ensure reliable operation in the most challenging industrial environments. Pipe diameters are available from 1/2″ to 24″. ATEX Zone 21 and 22 versions are available.
The Metal Detector GF is commonly used for:
- Powdered milk
The Metal Detector GF is enclosed in 100% stainless steel housing and is specifically designed for use in the food industry.
Features & Benefits of Metal Detector GF
A mounting frame with an integrated metal-free zone allows for exceptionally quick and easy installation.
Sturdy design: A rock-solid sensor head and mounting frame design ensure consistent reliability and performance. The METAL SHARK® Gravity Feed can be located even near machines that vibrate.
Multiple reject options: The EX-P reject system with dust sealing is recommended for powders. The EX-S reject system is best suited for applications with fast-flowing products. The EX-K reject system is built to withstand the challenges of abrasive products and will not wear out.
Various downpipe types: white PVDF (with FDA), black antistatic pipes (with FDA), nylon, ceramic and others.
