Function

Metal detector METAL SHARK® TU is used in combination with conveyor belts or chutes when they cannot be divided or dismantled. The side walls of the TU can be removed so that the sensor plates can be easily pushed over and under the belt.

Thanks to its 4-quadrant technology, it detects magnetic and non-magnetic metal contaminants (iron, stainless steel, aluminium etc.) precisely and reliably. The robust stainless steel housing is easy to clean and robust and therefore suitable for many industries.
