Advanced Detection Systems consistent metal detectors protect shredders, granulators, extruders and more

Plastic regrind processes require metal detection appropriate for each individual application. We manufacture a variety of metal detectors that alert workers and stop the feed conveyor before material reaches the processing equipment and cause damage. Protection of your equipment and preventing costly downtime is what the SurroundScan Protector LP was engineered and manufactured for.

The SurroundScan Protector LP has a 45% smaller coil enclosure and a 40% weight reduction than the SurroundScan Protector HD; simplifying installation on conveyor frames where clearance between the conveyor belt and frame is limited. The Protector LP can be quickly installed on portable conveyors and used on spliced conveyor belts.
