Conveyor style metal detectors, or tunnel metal detectors, have a horizontal aperture through which a conveyor passes moving product. They are the most sensitive style of metal detector and specified to suit each particular application. Conveyor style metal detectors are used for packaged goods and dry or nearly dry bulk products. They can also be adapted for pharmaceutical (pill) applications. All brands represented by J.A. King are fabricated with food-grade stainless steel and can be easily cleaned to meet today’s stringent sanitation requirements.
End of line metal detectors, where the product is already packaged and therefore cannot be exposed to further contaminants, are advantageous but not always feasible due to space and packaging restrictions.
