What is the difference between metal separator and metal detector?

Metal separator and metal detector both belong to metal detection equipment, but they are different from each other in terms of name. Today, I'm going to show you the difference between these two products?

Same point: the working principle of the two is the same, both of which are based on the principle of electromagnetic induction and magnetic balance (not described in detail in the small edition here). Today, we mainly talk about the differences between the two:


1. The metal separator equipment is composed of metal detection and metal separation. When the product mixed with metal foreign matters enters the metal detection head, the equipment senses the metal and provides an alarm signal, and the subsequent metal separation mechanism will receive the instruction to start metal separation and output the contaminated product from another channel. In a broad sense, the metal detector is used for metal detection All of the machines can be called metal inspection machine, which usually only includes the metal detection part, while the automatic removal device belongs to the addition part.

2. The metal separator is generally free fall type, which can be used together with the customer's equipment or independently (with feeding hopper and support underframe). Because it is free fall type, the product input does not need power, and it does not need to be equipped with motor and conveyor belt; and the metal detector has a variety of ways, including horizontal type, pipeline type, oblique type, etc., except online metal Testing machine does not need power, other need to be equipped with conveying system.


3. The detection channel of metal separator is generally circular, and the pipe diameter is relatively small, so the accuracy of metal detection is relatively high; while the channel of metal detector can be customized according to the actual needs of customers, and the standard configuration is 400mm, but in actual production, some can achieve more than 1m, some only need 200mm, Even smaller, the height of the probe can be customized according to the requirements, and the detection accuracy varies according to the size of the probe (based on the same configuration).

4. metal separators are commonly used in the plastics industry, testing plastic particles or crushing materials, of course, they can also be applied to food raw materials, additives, preservatives, flavors and fragrances, chemical raw materials and other industries, but the detection products are limited, generally dry particles or powder products, and metal testing machine can detect all non-metallic products, regardless of testing. What shape and shape is the product? It has a wider application range.
