Metal Detector SQ & SQTA

Metal Detector SQ & SQTA

Metal detection for the mining, construction and building recycling industry

SQ and SQTA provide monitoring of and protection against harmful pieces of metal like tools or machine parts in the material being conveyed. 

Both metal detectors can easily be mounted to even mobile conveyor belts for crushers, mills and similar machinery. Thus they are well suited for quarries, lime works, clinker works, sand pits, cement factories, slag processing, building material recycling, brickworks and coal-burning power stations.

These Metal Detectors are extremly durable, immune to vibration and resistant to weather, dirt or impact from stones. They are easy to install, to handle and maintain.

SQ is a single probe version of the metal detector, which can easily be installed under the conveyor belt. For even better protection use the tandem probe version SQTA: It monitors you goods from above and below the conveyor belt. They both are available for belt widths from 500 mm to 1,200 mm.

You need metal detecion at a belt speed up to 6.0 m/s? Your conveyor belt is wider than 1,200 mm? Metal detector QLC & QLCTA is, what you are looking for.
