Foreign Object Detection

Gravity Feed Metal Detector

For free falling powder and bulk products.

METAL SHARK® Gravity Feed (GF) Metal Detectors, available in both standard and compact models, are used in gravity feed pipelines to monitor for unwanted metal contaminants in continuous flowing granules or powders, such as sugar, flour, corn meal and spices.

Product touching parts are made according to FDA food grade quality standards. As bulk material flows through the metal detector, reject flaps promptly separate even the smallest metal contaminants from the product stream.

Maintenance-free design and high-quality construction ensure reliable operation in the most challenging industrial environments. Pipe diameters are available from 1/2″ to 24″. ATEX Zone 21 and 22 versions are available.

The Metal Detector GF is commonly used for:

  • Powdered milk

The Metal Detector GF is enclosed in 100% stainless steel housing and is specifically designed for use in the food industry.

Available digital controllers: METAL SHARK® 1, METAL SHARK® 2A
