The downtime and the repairs to crushers due to damage by tramp metal are costly. That’s why plant managers and engineers consider tramp metal detectors an essential addition to their conveyor lines.
SciTronics detectors are designed to find tramp while scanning products such as highly mineralized or magnetic ores (including magnetite and pyrites) even when conveyed on steel cable belts, as well as copper, nickel, aluminum, aggregates, coal, rubber, wood chips, sinter and tar sands. They can also be used in recycling plants to detect tramp among plastic, glass or paper.
The electrical conductivity of materials conveyed through the SciTronics sensor area is measured by detecting variations in a pulsed electronic field. Since magnetic and conductive properties of any material are independent, both magnetic and non-magnetic metals are detected.
