Tunnel Metal Detector (TU)

Tunnel Metal Detector  (TU) for conveyor installation on bottom and top of the conveye more

  • 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 mainboard – 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 the 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

    • TU Metal Detectors are typically used in:
      • Plastics recycling
      • Rubber production
      • Wood and paper processing
      • Food-related industries
