The METAL SHARK® PH is typically used at the outlet of tablet presses. It offers the highest metal sensitivity in detecting magnetic and non-magnetic metals.

The tablets fall through the metal detector. The ejection flap arranged downstream separates tablets with the smallest metal contaminants from the product stream.

The high-quality construction is maintenance-free. For cleaning, all parts in contact with the product can be disassembled without tools.
