All About Industrial Metal Detectors

Posted by Admin on December, 04, 2012

Developed in 1947 by Bruce Kerr and David Hiscock, Industrial Metal Detectors have come a long way by serving as effective contamination detection equipment for diverse industries. The first such detector was developed by the company Goring Kerr and was used by Mars Incorporated, an American manufacturer of confectionery, pet food, and other food products. This article discusses the working and the application areas of Industrial Metal Detection Equipment.


Where Are Industrial Metal Detectors Used Today?

Industrial Metal Detectors are often integrated into the production line in the form of Conveyor Metal Detector or any other type. They are used for detecting small metal and metallic objects in various products due to which they are widely demanded by the following industries:

  • Food: To detect metal shards in food from broken processing machinery.
  • Garment: To detect the presence of metal objects such as needles, broken hardware in the stitched garments.
  • Pharmaceutical: Here, they are a part of inspection and rejection system to detect quality of tablets, capsules and pharmaceutical powders.

Apart from this, the detectors also find use in industries like:

  • Chemicals
  • Lumber
  • Beverage
  • Textile
  • Plastics
  • Packaging

How Industrial Metal Detectors Work?

The Working Of An Industrial Metal Detector is based on a three coil design that uses an AM transmitting coil plus two receiving coils one on each side. The detector is designed to find out very small metal contaminates ranging in sizes from 1mm or even smaller than this. The coil is configured to have an opening/ aperture for the product to pass through the 3 coil system. At this point an equal but mirrored signal is created on the two receiving coils. The signals thus produced cancel each other out. In case there is a metal contaminant then the disturbance in signals is unequal which, in turn, gives rise to a minute electronic signal. Special electronics are used to amplify this signal and direct the mechanical equipment attached to the detector to remove the contaminated objects. The entire process needs no human intervention and is continuous so that the production proceeds with no interruption.
