Metal Detector

Metal detectors are designed to detect small pieces of metal within a package or container. Metal detectors are a safety check put in place in a processing or packaging line to assure that small pieces of metal do not get inserted into a package where they could harm a customer. Different types of metal detectors are designed to handle different products. The differences in these metal detectors are mostly related to the way incoming product is handled and passed through the metal detecting head. Tablet or capsule metal detectors utilize a chute to handle the fragile tablets and to prevent marring of the tablets. Liquid and powder metal detectors, also call flow through metal detectors use gravity to pass the powder or liquid through the metal detecting head without actually contacting the powder or liquid. Conveyor metal detectors use a conveyor to move products, containers, or packages through the metal detecting head. X-ray detection is a special kind safety check that is used as a substitute for metal detection.
