Industrial Metal Detectors

Explore Our Extensive Range of Industrial Metal Detectors

Bunting's Industrial Metal Detectors sense and remove the presence of ferrous, non-ferrous and stainless metals in process flows. These units also find metal encapsulated in the individual particle.

Successful detection and separation of metal will protect your processing equipment from damage, which saves your organisation money and downtime.


Belt Conveyor Metal Separators are designed to pick up, detect and then reject any kind of metal from a belt conveyor system.

Innovative Triple Coil Design

Bunting Metal Detectors utilise a triple coil design for the search head. This is comprised of windings around an aperture opening, whether round, or rectangular. There is a transmitter in the centre, and two receivers (one at the entrance of the search head, and one at the exit). Within the aperture opening, an electromagnetic field is created. When a piece of metal passes through the coil opening, a signal is generated and calculated at each and activates further operations or devices.

Water-Resistant Epoxy and Other Industrial Metal Detectors

Metal detectors are highly sensitive pieces of equipment, and need to be protected from environmental interference such as vibration and other electrical fields.

All search heads are filled with catalysed epoxy. There are no empty voids inside the housing, thereby eliminating the possibility of water intrusion into the coil, making them easy to clean. This exclusive epoxy also reduces the effect of vibration on the search head. Coils and electronics can be rated from IP54 to IP66 and IP69K.

Additionally, the search head is manufactured with special shielding against outside interference. This allows Bunting Metal Detectors to perform better in difficult environments, and require shorter metal-free zones than our competition.

Quality Control

Depending on the level of electronics you select, Bunting Metal Detectors have recording and reporting functions within the software. Optional features allow your organisation to network detectors for remote monitoring, reporting or control.

What Is an Industrial Metal Detector?

An industrial metal detector is a specialized device used in various industries, including food processing, pharmaceuticals, mining, and manufacturing, to detect the presence of metallic contaminants in products or materials. The main function of an industrial metal detector is to ensure product quality and safety by identifying and removing any metal contaminants that may be present.

Metal Detectors for Industrial Use

Industrial metal detectors differ from their hand-held counterparts massively, there are three main distinctive differences:

  • Design - Standard metal detectors are typically portable handheld devices, whereas industrial metal detectors are larger and more robust units that are integrated into product streams or conveyor systems.
  • Application - Standard metal detectors are designed for casual activities such as beachcombing or relic hunting.
