Gravity Feed Metal Detector

For free falling powder and bulk products.

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.

METAL SHARK® Gravity Feed (GF) Metal Detectors, available in both standard and compact models, are used in gravity feed pipelines to monitor for unwanted metal contaminants in continuous flowing granules or powders, such as sugar, flour, cornmeal, and spices.

Product touching parts are made according to FDA food-grade quality standards. As bulk material flows through the metal detector, reject flaps promptly separate even the smallest metal contaminants from the product stream.

Maintenance-free design and high-quality construction ensure reliable operation in the most challenging industrial environments. Pipe diameters are available from 1/2″ to 24″. ATEX Zone 21 and 22 versions are available.

The Metal Detector GF is commonly used for:

  • Powdered milk
  • Sugar
  • Cereal
  • Proteins
  • Spices
  • Granules

The Metal Detector GF is enclosed in 100% stainless steel housing and is specifically designed for use in the food industry.

Available digital controller:  METAL SHARK® 2A

Features & Benefits of Metal Detector GF

A mounting frame with an integrated metal-free zone allows for exceptionally quick and easy installation.

Sturdy design: A rock-solid sensor head and mounting frame design ensure consistent reliability and performance. The METAL SHARK® Gravity Feed can be located even near machines that vibrate.

Multiple reject options: The EX-P reject system with dust sealing is recommended for powders. The EX-S reject system is best suited for applications with fast-flowing products. The EX-K reject system is built to withstand the challenges of abrasive products and will not wear out.

Various downpipe types: white PVDF (with FDA), black antistatic pipes (with FDA), nylon, ceramic and others.
