The Metron is a metal detector for use on conveyor belts that has been developed by the Dutch company Goudsmit Magnetic Systems.
Made entirely of stainless steel and suitable for environments subject to high pressure cleaning, the detector both alarms and takes action when metal is detected. This could mean stopping the belt or removing the metal via an ejector mechanism. Different ejector systems are available to suit individual products.
The company also produces the Quicktron, a metal detector for removing metal from products flowing on a free-fall line. Here the signal from the detection coil is linked to an ejector flap, which automatically ejects the piece of metal.
For companies expecting a lot of metal contamination, the Dutch firm also has its All-metals-catcher -- a combination of a magnetic separator and a metal detector that separates all metals from foodstuffs.
