The METAL SHARK® R offers the highest performance in detecting magnetic and non-magnetic metals. Typical applications are found in the medical-pharmaceutical sector as well as in the sanitary or food industry and for all kinds of chemical powders.

The product falls through the R sensor head and an optional reject unit. With the reject unit the smallest metal objects are promptly ejected from the flow of goods. Metal particles are automatically rejected.

The reject unit is suitable for tube diameter 10 to 50 mm, Reject timing is automatically by metal detector control box. Pneumatically driven.

The hygienic housing is easy to clean, all materials in contact with the product are FDA-approved quality (PTFE and stainless steel).
