A & Y Company, a Pune (Maharashtra, India) based company produces metal detecting machines for food, pharmaceutical and many other industries. Gravity feed metal detector is one metal detecting machine in the range. This machine can detect the metal contamination in free flowing products in dry, powder and granular forms. The material to be inspected for contamination is added into the detector from the hopper at the top. The material that is free from metal pass through the mechanism, while the contamination is separated and diverted from the main material flow. The metal contaminants go directly into the reject tank. This gravity feed metal detector is highly sensitive to metallic contamination and automatically reject the metal contaminants.
