A metal detector for food processing metal detection. All food grade / USDA sanitary hose-wash-down stainless steel construction (IP-67/NEMA 6 search head enclosure, IP-65/Nema4,4x,6,12 & 13 control enclosure).

FOUR FREQUENCY LEVELS (35kHz, 75kHz, 150kHz, and 300kHz), 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. 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, however the manufacturer rates dry sensitivity for this head, with no product in the aperture, at a maximum sensitivity of 1.7mm ferrous, 2.3mm non ferrous, and 2.7mm stainless steel at 300 kHz.

Quick teach feature learns new products in 4 to 7 passes. The contol 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 maximizes reliability, and minimizes maintenance expenses.

NEW EQUIPMENT - Includes a 2 year manufacturer warranty on hardware / parts.

As of this writing, this food process metal detection system is in stock at Alard, brand new, ready to go, and available for immediate shipment.
