Reasons why Metal Detectors is of utmost importance these days

Gone are those days, when there is no device to find out an uncommon metal inclusion in products.  But with the advent of new technologies, several hi-tech products are introduced in the market. Metal detector is one such useful invention. Now, several companies are involved in manufacturing metal detectors for finding out varied kinds of hidden metal contamination within objects.

Working Procedure of Metal Detectors

Metal detectors work on the principle of electromagnetic induction and it consists of the control, the inductive proximity sensor, the output device and the signal processor. Using these four components, the device transmits an EM field into the ground from the search coil.  During the procedure, the metallic object present within this field will itself retransmit an EM field.

Why use metal detectors in the Pharma industry

Metal Detectors are used to inspect the pharmaceutical product for the presence of any kind of metal contamination including pins, fasteners, pins, or other metallic pieces in the object.

  • Designed using premium quality stainless steel
  • Require minimum maintenance
  • Easy to assemble
  • Pharma Metal Detectors can be used to check the capsules, tablets, granules or powders for the detection of ferrous or non-ferrous components.
  • Easy to dismantle and hence can be easily cleaned.
  • The tablet metal detector is an ideal device used in pharmaceutical applications.
  • The device with excellent processing speed is highly sensitive to non-magnetic stainless steel and other metals as well.
  • Quick and efficient detection of contamination in the object
  • High level of accuracy in detecting metals, and more.

  1. Pipeline Metal Detector
  • Designed to detect contamination in liquid products
  • Can withstand in high temperature and high-pressure environment
  • Available in different sizes for different applications
  • Anti-static and highly efficient
  • Do not chemically change the product, etc.


  1. Conveyorised Metal Detector


For high-security applications, metal detector conveyor systems are an ideal solution for quality control in the food and beverage industry. They can be installed at multiple points throughout the production process, from raw ingredients to packaging and shipping, to ensure that no contaminated or potentially dangerous food products make it to the end of the line. However, it’s important to choose your conveyorised metal detector systems carefully based on your specific needs in order to benefit from the maximum protection against contamination and product damage possible.
