Using vertical-fall metal detectors in bulk solids processing

Using a vertical-fall metal detector can control metal contaminants in dry bulk material processing. This article explains how to use a vertical-fall metal detector effectively, including information about where metal contaminants come from, how a vertical-fall metal detector works, and how various factors affect detector sensitivity.

Metal contaminants in dry bulk materials can cause two major problems on a processing line. Undetected particles of metal can damage process machinery, resulting in process downtime and repair costs. Undetected metal particles can also impair product quality -- which can be dangerous to customers -- creating adverse publicity and resulting in a loss of customer goodwill. Using a metal detector that not only senses the presence of metal contaminants but is equipped with a device that rejects the contaminants can protect process equipment and ensure product quality.
