Gravity

Gravity feed type metal detectors are used in gravity feed pipes and provide the highest performance in detecting magnetic and non-magnetic metals. The bulk material falls through the metal detector. With the reject flap, even the smallest metal objects are separated out of the product stream promptly.

The GF Compact has a low assembly height and is especially designed for limited space applications. Due to the ultra-compact sensor head, the metal detection performance is slightly lower compared to the full size model.

Once installed in a gravity feed pipeline, bulk material falls through the metal detector. If any metallic contaminant, magnetic or non-magnetic is detected, the reject flap engages to promptly separate and exit the contaminant from the product stream.
