Choosing The Right Metal Detector

Posted by Admin on December, 24, 2014

Choosing the Right Metal Detector can be a confusing task for a beginner. There are many different brands and models of Metal Detectors available to select from. Moreover, the many variations in features, opinions and prices, make it even more difficult to make a purchase. While checking out different Metal Detector models for purchase, there are four main aspects that need to be considered, in order to make a fair comparison i.e. application, sensitivity, specialized need and ground balance.


Depending upon whether the metal detector is required for food processing, or mining or other industrial applications, the right kind should be chosen accordingly. E.g. If there is need for a metal detector to detect metal particles in food products like dry fruits, grains, peanuts, etc., then Grain Metal Detector would be suitable. Else if garment manufacturing units, or home furnishing production centers have need of a metal detector for the specific task of detecting stray needles and metallic bits, then Needle Detector would serve as the best choice.


Sensitivity is of great importance when gold searching is the desired target. It is highly necessary for consideration, as the frequency of the detector determines the sensitivity of the detector.

Specialized Need

Sometimes metal detectors are needed for specialized jobs. These specialized jobs may include;

  • Inspecting products that are packed in aluminium foils for metallic contaminants. Ferro Search Metal Detectors are used in such cases as they are designed to avoid the effects of the aluminium & ensure successful detection.
  • For verifying the presence of a metallic product in a packed sample, in such cases, suitable metal detectors may be used as per the need. E.g. the presence of the aluminium sachets within noodle packets can be verified using metal detectors.

Some Other factors that should be considered while choosing a Metal Detector are the size and types of coils available, low noise operation and the size of the target, etc., along with the cost of the Metal Detector.
