Belt Style Metal Detector

Belt Style Metal Detector

The Cassel METAL SHARK® Belt Style Metal Detector is often used to detect contaminants more

Intuitive Design

  • Multiple languages available
  • Four-level password: operator, manager, technician and service
  • Easy-to-follow, step-by-step, high-graphic screens help users set standards for product testing
  • Simple operation means no expensive service calls to adjust settings

Four Quadrant Technology

  • 360° analysis of the product signature
  • Metal threshold follows the signature so metal detection occurs in the whole product
  • The detector adjusts settings to detect metals in the most “difficult” products such as cheese or high salt content foods

Zero Maintenance Electronics

  • All solid state electronics housed on one main board – ensures years of reliable performance offering the lowest cost of ownership on the market
  • Digital Balance Control adjusts for temperature and humidity fluctuations by monitoring coil balance more than 200 times per second
  • 2 year standard warranty

Documentation and Traceability
Metal detectors are considered a critical control point, and continuous checking is required to meet standards. Cassel metal detectors can be programmed to automatically remind the operator to test equipment performance at pre-set intervals. A list of metal contaminant detections, changes in parameter settings, etc., is stored with both date and time. This list can be viewed on screen or the data can be downloaded to a Windows-based PC.

  • Performance validation system (PVS) automatically prompts operator to test Metal Detector performance at pre-set intervals
  • Operational history: events are recorded with the date and time and can be viewed on the control panel or export the log via a serial port
  • Data will not be lost during a power outage

  • Low pressure wash-down (IP67)
    • METAL SHARK® controller is be housed in a double thick stainless steel enclosure
    • Can be washed down with a pressure hose
  • High pressure wash-down (IP69k)
    • Aperture is specially sealed to prevent leaks
    • METAL SHARK® controller is housed in a double thick stainless steel enclosure
    • Daily wash-ups with a steam hose at a maximum pressure of 60 bar/900 psi can be conducted
    • Sausage processors and other manufacturers who conduct frequent wash-ups have found this feature very beneficial
