The Tectron ® Model 50 is engineered for installation on conveyor belts carrying coal, minerals, aggregates, and other bulk materials. The model 50 can be tuned to ignore conductive or magnetic ores such as magnetite and pyrite, even if they are carried by high tension, steel cord belts with rip detection loops, while still detecting small pieces of tramp metal. The model 50 is available in nearly any belt width, and can be field adjusted to fit most standard conveyor configurations. An adjustable aperture allows the model 50 to be modified for changing plant demands. The model 50 is also available as a flat-pack under-belt style detector. Lightweight construction makes it easy to assemble and install without special tools, or the need to cut the belt, and the field replaceable, microprocessor based controls are easy to operate and maintain. A self-test circuit activates a fault light and dry contact to alert the operator if there ever is a problem with the controls, so you'll never have to wonder if your detector is operating properly.
Keeping production up and running is essential to your operation. Equipment damage caused by tramp metal not only costs you time and money in replacing damaged equipment, but most importantly it costs you production time. Tectron Metal Detectors are designed to protect expensive crushers, grinders, saws and other downstream equipment from metallic contaminants while minimizing false trips. Tectron offers a wide variety of detectors and sensitivities to choose from so you can be sure that you're getting the right detector for the application, all with a 3 year warranty. Manufacturing the most reliable metal detectors for bulk material handling is all we do, and with over 40 years experience, you can rely on the most trusted name in the industry.
