Conveyor Metal Detector for Food Industry
Metal detectors are been used in Food Industries to detect metal contamination and provide with metal-free finished products for their customers. The Metal Detector is installed on a conveyor belt system with an ONLINE rejection unit.
When any metal contamination is passed through the metal detector unit, the same is detected and announcedÂ by the system .
On detection of metal contamination :
- The product can be rejected by an automatic reject mechanism which shall be operated by pneumatically.
- The conveyor motor can be interlocked so that the belt will stop automatically on detection. The metal detector and the conveyor mechanism are fully fabricated in Stainless Steel material with smooth dull finish which is widely accepted by all food industries.
- Product flow should allow for evenly spaced products; this will minimize the number of products rejected when metal has been detected.
- Reject mechanism should be fast enough and strong enough to remove product without disturbing product flow
- Belting should be matched to environment and reject concerns
- Product transfer between metal detector conveyor and existing conveyors.
