6 inch diameter,
food grade stainless steel,
shown with reject valve...


A CASSEL METALSHARK 2 model GFS-150-RV drop-through metal detector for industrial manufacturing and packaging process applications.


  • THRU-TUBE: 6 inch diameter by 24 inch long anti-static plastic through-tube with stainless steel end connections.

  • MOUNTING FRAME: The metal detection search head enclosure comes mounted inside a 19 5/8 inch wide by 16 5/8 inch long by 20 inch high tubular stainless steel frame, with angle cross pieces for mounting in place as needed to support your product inspection application / usage. --PLEASE NOTE that the pictures show this metal detector and control panel sitting on top of an OPTIONAL frame with casters that we use for showroom display purposes, and is not included with this metal detector, but is available separately (CALL us at 315-589-4511 for a quote specific to your metal detection requirements).

  • y3861o_crop_email.jpgREJECT DIVERTER (NOTE: available with, or without): Stainless steel high speed pneumatic Y-valve reject valve, with 6 inch diameter discharge outlets; 35 inch free-fall from inlet to bottom discharge with reject diverter in place.

  • UTILITIES: 110 volt single phase (standard household current) electrical input. Compressed air pneumatic line also required to operate reject valve.

  • SENSITIVITY: Metal detection sensitivity varies depending on product run (determined by 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 .8mm ferrous, 1.1 mm non ferrous, and 1.3mm stainless steel.

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

  • The control unit allows for 120 product presets.

  • EASE OF MAINTENANCE: Single control board technology with all control electronics on one circuit board maximizes reliability, and minimizes maintenance expenses.

  • T316 stainless steel 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.

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

  • Gravity free-fall metal detection systems are commonly used for free-flowing granular and / or particulate products, as well as sliced, diced, shredded and whole products in food manufacturing and other industrial production applications. Gravity flow metal detectors are commonly mounted under feed hoppers, under mixer / blender discharges, or on filling machines, such as for metal-checking between scales and form-fill-seal or other types of baggers.

As of this writing, this NEW industrial process gravity free-fall metal detector is in stock NEW at Alard, available for immediate shipment.
