  • The reconditioned stainless steel frame washdown belt transfer conveyor has a 108 inch long by 24 inch wide food grade plastic interlocking chain type belt, thru-conveyor.

  • The pre-owned / refurbished thru-conveyor is complete with a PULL BACK REJECT with a signal BEACON for rejection / notification of contaminated product detection. The pneumatically powered retracting belt reject system pulls the end of the conveyor belt back 18 inches when contamination is detected, so that the rejected product can fall beneath the convyeor. The belt then immediately extends back into position so that good product can continue flowing across the belt (while the beacon continues flashing to alert plant personnel of the incident). This retracting nose reject configuration is particularly useful for heavy and/or bulky products difficult to reject by other means.

  • This is a food grade metal detector specifically built for food processing and other industrial production line metal detection applications.

  • Food grade T316 stainless steel construction search head enclosure rated IP-67 / NEMA 6 IP-65, with Nema4, 4x, 6, 12 & 13 contol enclosure.

  • Multi-frequency, allowing for optimal sensitivity across an exceptionally wide range of products / product types (wet, dry, salty, meat, fruits, vegetables, fresh, frozen, hot, cold, etc) allowing for maximum versatility with the widest range of products. The optimal frequency is automatically set by the system in "product learn"mode to maximize sensitivity / minimize false rejects with your specific product.

  • Quick teach feature learns new products in 4 to 7 passes.

  • Sensitivity varies depending on product run, and frequency setting (determinedby product characteristics), especially where wet, salty, or acidic products that are electrically conductive introduce "product effect" into the equation.

  • The control unit allows for 120 product presets, where product presets save the frequency setting with the other tuning data.

  • Single control board technology with all control electronics on one circuit board; --this maximizes reliability, and minimizes maintenance expenses.

  • T316 stainless steel search head construction. T316 stainless steel is an extremely high-grade of stainless, more corrosion resistant than standard 304 type stainless steel, and suitable even in corrosive process environments,such as in processing onions, peppers, brines, tomatoes, citrus products, etc.

  • The metal detection head is new equipment and includes a 2 year manufacturer warranty on hardware / parts.

As of this writing, this NEW metal detector on a pre-owned retracting belt reject conveyor is in stock at Alard in EXCELLENT operational, electrical, mechanical, and cosmetic condition, available for immediate shipment.
