Multi-Frequency Metal Detector Offers Compact Footprint

Thermo Fisher

Thermo Fisher Scientific (Minneapolis, MN) offers their Sentinel 3000 multi-scan metal detector, with features that include:

  • The ability to mount on the frame of the Thermo Scientific VersaWeigh and Versa GP checkweighers.
  • The first multi-frequency metal detector specifically designed for metal detection-checkweighing combination systems in food production.
  • This combo results in a smaller footprint than typically required with two pieces of equipment.
  • By integrating the detector onto the checkweigher frame, the need for an external metal detector conveyor is eliminated.
  • The ability to select up to five frequencies from 50 to 1,000 kHz and scan through each frequency at a rapid rate.
