Product details Mitus® free-fall metal detector

The Mitus® free-fall metal detection system guarantees the reliable inspection and removal of metallic foreign objects from food products of all kinds in powder or granular form that are transported through a pipe by gravity. These include, for example, powdered milk, wheat, nuts or cornflakes. Thanks to the innovative MiWave technology, the highest detection sensitivities can be achieved even with high product effects.

  • Minimal installation height for easy integration into all kinds of applications
  • True-in process validation guarantees correct performance testing
  • Cost-effective control of up to four search coils via one terminal

This is how you perfect your metal detection: select the appropriate components for your operating terminal according to the modular principle - consisting of search coil, tube, separator and optionally the True-In process validation.

All components of the complete system can be used in Zone 22 hazardous areas in accordance with the provisions of Directive 94/9/EC.
