Fitting a tunnel metal detector to an existing conveyor system has been simplified by S+S with the DLS which can be split horizontally into two halves allowing the unit to be installed easily without disturbing the conveyor. Ideal for detecting all types of metal contaminants in bulk material to protect granulators and shredders, the DLS reduces production downtime and maintenance costs to give exceptionally quick cost recovery. The high detection sensitivity and robust construction delivers flexibility and reliability in even the harshest operating conditions.
A choice of two digital control systems allows precise matching to specific performance requirements and simplifies set-up and operation. Routine operational control is by three control buttons, a reset and a test with machine parameters being shown on eight LEDs in the case of the Primus version or a two line LCD display for the Sensity controller. Non-volatile memory stores data on up to eight user defined and three preinstalled products.
The multi-channel technology detects all metals, including stainless steel and aluminium. When contamination is detected, the control system can initiate an audible or visual warning, activate a separation system or send a signal to a process control system to simply stop the belt.
The robust design offers maximum resistance to interference and ensures high reliability both mechanically and operationally. That the system performs equally well under harsh conditions for inspecting bulk materials and applications demanding high sensitivity is evidence of the versatility and reliability of the DLS metal detection system.
