Metal detectors

February 1, 2010




The E-Z Tec DSP narrow-profile, liquid-line metal detectors detect the presence of ferrous, nonferrous and stainless metal contaminants in viscous products such as liquids, slurries, syrups, pastes and other pumped materials. When metal is detected in the product flow, a reject signal is channeled to one of the available output relays. The output relay can be used to activate a ball valve, control a visual or audio alarm or send a signal to a PLC. Complete systems are available in pipe sizes ranging from 1 to 6 in. diameter.
