Detector/Separators Work On Magnetic And Nonmagnetic Metals
Bunting Magnetics has introduced a range of single- and multi-coil metal detectors and detector/separators to address the problem of nonmagnetic metal contaminants. Models are designed to monitor free-flowing, gravity-fed products, pneumatically conveyed materials, materials on conveyor belts and liquids, pastes and slurries in pipes.
These units use electronic sensors and air-powered rejection systems to remove contaminants. Sensitivity is adjustable and a programmable Product Effect Compensation feature suppresses false signals caused by product or nonmetallic particles.
Several models are available:
* MD HS is for free-flowing bulk materials that do not require product effect compensation, such as plastics
* MD FS is for pneumatically conveyed materials where space is at a premium
* MD LCS is the 'last-chance' separator for protecting plastics processing machinery. It is designed to be mounted on the intake of extruders and otherprimary processing equipment to provide metal detection in plug flow applications. The housing supports gravity feeders, blenders and other auxiliary equipment.
* MD Quicktron provides balanced-coil metal detection in gravity-fed, free-flowing bulk materials. It is available with analog or digital data processing systems and an optional 'Quick Clean' reject system.
* MD P-Tron is for pneumatically conveyed materials where free-fall space is at a premium. Unit has a Positive Speed Control that calculates the velocity of the contaminant to achieve precise reject gate timing and to minimize loss of good product.
