Metal Detector Solutions – Reduce Damage & Downtime


Medetec Metal Detection solutions provide accurate feedback and precise location of metal materials directly to control system operators.
With this valuable information, controllers can utilise this technology to measure tramp metal size levels, foreign metal materials can be removed efficiently and cost-effectively with minimal disruptions to productivity.

In 2020, if the protection of plant and machinery is high on your agenda?  Take a Closer Look at Medetec Metal Detection Solutions.

Utilised in fixed installation industrial applications, Medetec Metal Detectors provide powerful, accurate and highly effective detection of foreign metal objects in the flow of non-metallic bulk materials.  The presence of metals is a common occurrence in processing plants, causing potential havoc to productivity, increased risk of accidents and costly damage to the conveyor belt and expensive machinery.

Nuts, bolts, screws, tools and other tramp metal objects can find its way into processing equipment, crushers, hammer mills and impactors.  When metal material is detected they can be eliminated, preventing scarring and grooving of the conveyor belt that can occur when varying sized tramp metal material passes through the production process.

Key Features/Benefits:

  • Offers a simple & reliable way of ensuring uninterrupted operation.
  • Equipment is easy to install and operate.
  • Cost reduction realised due to less repair and damage to machinery.
  • Self adjusts and requires little ongoing maintenance.
  • Suitable for all bulk materials handling applications, particularly where high detection sensitivity is required.

How does it all work??

The main parts consists of an electronics unit, search coil and signal cable.  All metals can be detected, sensitivity is greatest for ordinary steel, slightly lower for copper, aluminium and stainless steel.  Non-metallic materials with a high iron content or good electricity conductivity may give a signal as well.
Utilising the latest search coil technology, even at the highest belt speeds, when the presence of metal is detected, warning bell activation or emergency stop function outputs can be selected depending on different sensitivity for metal objects.  When the relay out is deactivated this ensures the fast stoppage of the flow of materials immediately before it enters the processing plant.
