 Great for free-falling bulk product
Print Reprint
FILED IN:  Machinery  > Inspection  > Metal detectors
     

Phantom Gravity metal detector systems are designed to detect metal contamination in dry, powdery or granular free-flowing products that can be gravity fed through a pipe.

Systems are available in Aluminum or Stainless Steel casing, with a selection of pipe sizes. The Diverter Valve reject system is typically used to divert contaminated product into a reject tank.

A test ball retrieval drawer is offered as an option with Gravity systems, allowing for ease of manual testing. For added convenience, a wired mountable remote control is ideal for installations in which the detector unit is not easily accessible.
