with PULL-BACK REJECT system. 5.25 inch high by 12 inch wide usable aperture opening.>

Stainless steel washdown-sealed search head enclosure with digital operator controls, mounted on and integrated with tubular frame stainless steel wash-down configured ELEVATING THROUGH-CONVEYOR, with a 10 inch wide by 74 inch long interlocking plastic chain type belt. The metal detection head and conveyor are integrated with a pneumatic retracting conveyor belt / "pull back" type reject mechanism: If contamination is detected, the discharge end of the conveyor pulls back 8 inches, so the product drops through (usually a tote box or bin is placed beneath to catch rejects).

Previously used to receive bags from a (not included, but we may have available) vertical form-fill-seal machine (VFFS) and discharge the bags onto an accumulating disk (also not included, but we may have available), the elevating conveyor presently inclines from a 21 inch infeed height to a 45 inch discharge height, with the stainless steel frame sitting on adjustable height feet. Product flow runs in a right to left direction from the operator controls position.

Both the metal detector head and conveyor are configured for WASHDOWN use, including the conveyor's stainless steel wash-down motor. Both the metalchecker and conveyor take 110 volt single phase (standard US household current) electrical input.

As of this writing, this metal detection system is in stock, in EXCELLENT operational, electrical, and mechanical condition, serviced, tested, and available for immediate shipment.
