Compact metal detector for sausage filling machines and sausage meat with mobile base frame on wheels. The stand with integrated gas spring offers easy height adjustment from 85 to 120 cm height.

The METAL SHARK® INA Meat can be used universally with twisting devices and automatic clip machines. In the twist-off mode, the foreign device cable is simply plugged into the foreign device socket on the filling machine. For automatic clip machines or automatic hanging lines, the foreign device cable is inserted into the existing cable between the filling machine and the clip or hanging machine. Plug and socket types are supplied to match the filling machine type.

The device is easy to clean and complies with the FDA standard.

Accessories & Extras

The CASSEL INA Meat is in many cases a critical control point. It is therefore important to check the functionality of the detector at regular intervals. We offer the appropriate test accessories or extended functions for this purpose.

Signalling devices are available as well as adapted frame constructions.

  • The inlet tube is equipped with a T-piece and a sealing cap for inserting the test ball. Tube is 230 mm long instead of 160 mm. The pipe pump must be stopped before the sealing cap is opened.
  • Test balls, diameter 10 mm made of plastic POM, with embedded metal ball made of iron, brass and stainless steel, certified Ball size, metal type and certificate number are embedded in the test ball
  • made of white, flexible plastic, certified, with embedded metal ball made of iron, ball size / metal type engraved
  • The SHARKNET® software connects METAL SHARK® metal detectors to a central computer and offers central storage of all operating data as well as batch and alarm documentation for HACCP and IFS conformity.
  • More stable frame construction possible.
  • Stacking lights and signal horns/sirens available in different versions and IP protection types.

Delivery Scope
