meTRON 05 CI

The meTRON 05 CI is a mid-range tunnel-type metal detector with integrated electronics designed for use with a conveyor. This model provides high-sensitivity detection. Once detected, the problematic metal is removed either manually or automatically, preventing damage to processing equipment.

The meTRON 05 CI Metal Detector automatically and continuously detects tramp metal in non-metallic and non-conductive materials either on conveyor belts or in product chutes. This model features digital signal processing for optimum metal detection.

The meTRON 05 CI is a tailored system solution using reliable conveying technology and selected accessories. There are a wide range of aperture sizes (through which the conveyor or chute feeds) to suit specific customer requirements. Additionally, different versions of the meTRON 05 CI are available for specific locations (e.g. outdoors, high-temperatures, etc).

The meTRON 05 CI features an integrated electronic control panel. This provides process and condition monitoring.


As with other Metal Detectors, on detecting any tramp metal, a signal is generated in the search coil and transmitted to the control unit. This signal is processed and used to control other circuits, which include stopping the product feed and operating audible or visual alarms.

Typical tramp metal detected includes:

  • Washers
  • Nails
  • Screws
  • Nuts and bolts
  • Wire
  • Swarf


The meTRON 05 CI is commonly used in the manufacture of food, plastics, hygiene products, and textiles.
