Load cells and weighing equipment used in hazardous environments must meet stringent requirements. Page 30 Gravity Flow Heavy-Duty Metal Detectors for Fine Powders Gravity FlowHD metal detection sys- tems are designed for the inspection of free-falling products in vertical packaging applications. Models are available to inspect both dusty powdered products and granular products consisting of large par- ticulates. All systems are available in a range of internal tube diameter configurations from 50 to 400 mm. They feature detection sensitivity ranges to match individual application needs, and can detect steel contaminants measuring .3 to 1.0 mm; aluminum, brass, copper, and bronze contaminants .3 to 1.2 mm; stainless steel contaminants .4 to 1.3 mm.
