For many years ABM Metal Detectors have been designing and manufacturing various types of metal detecting systems for applications ranging from: Food Processing, Timber, Plastic Recycling, Mining, and systems with special DIP requirements used in Defense Industries or other hazardous areas. Our metal detector aperture sizes can range from a small 100mm wide x 70mm high, up to a massive 10,000mm wide x 4000mm high for the special applications.
All models are high performance metal detectors suitable for detecting ferrous and non-ferrous metallic contamination in a wide range of non-metallic products. These units consist of a detector head, an electronic module, power supply and relay output with full reject timing controls. A selected range of metal detectors can as an option be constructed with removable End Plate, or with remote mounted electronic controls up to 20 meters away without any operating problems.
Also available is a range of vertical fall or drop through metal detectors. These units are commonly used on Form Fill and Seal machines, mounted just above the forming tube, or in other applications for gravity fed free flowing powders, pipeline, liquid or granular materials.
Each model in the range operates with analog main controls and digital pulse phase modulation incorporating a phase discriminating signal demodulation network, coupled to a dual gated detection system.
The dual gated detection system is a feature that eliminates early tripping when metal contaminants are being conveyed through the detector head. Detection actually occurs when the metal contaminants just pass through the centre of the detector head. This system allows excellent sensitivity while minimizing good product rejection.
ABM also produce an extensive range of Pulse Induction metal detector units. These units are commonly used in Mining Industries for the detection of, Ground Engaging Tools (GETís) etc. The units are of light weight and extremely effective in detection.
