THS/G Industrial metal detector for free-falling product applications
The THS/G is designed to inspect powders, granules and other loose materials transported in free-fall through tubes. When fitted with a deflector, the THS/G becomes a system that detects and removes any contaminating metals, both magnetic and non-magnetic. Digital analysis of the signal provided by the antenna (DSP) allows extremely high levels of sensitivity, immunity to interference and operational stability to be achieved.
The very high detection speed of the THS/G allows the contaminated portion of product to be removed without slowing down the production flow.
Alternatively, when mounted on a packaging machine, the THS/G system is able to send a command to produce a double layer of packaging around the contaminated product. This can later be identified and removed from the production cycle manually.
The THS/G system is designed to communicate with external control systems, either connected directly or via a communications network.
