The METAL SHARK® FL and FL compact metal detectors are typically used for the inspection of non-wovens, textiles/fabrics and films.
Both detectors are particularly flat and available in widths of 1,000 - 4,000 mm (39" to 157"). The FL compact features a rotatable mount so that it can be adapted to sloping webs.
Due to the high sensitivity of the FL models, even tiny magnetic and non-magnetic metal particles (e.g. iron, aluminum and stainless steel) are detected across the entire width.
