ThermoFisher Scientific unveiled the Ramsey Oretronic IV tramp metal detector, which is designed to work with belt conveyors that move minerals, iron pellets, coal, aggregates and other bulk materials. It can detect all types of metallic scrap, including bucket teeth, manganese steel mantles, bore crowns, bar scrap, chains and tools. The increased sensitivity in the Oretronic IV detector allows it to identify tramp metal buried in wet conductive materials quickly and accurately, the company reported.
The Oretronic IV tramp metal detector, which is available in two versions with two levels of sensitivity, includes a microprocessor- based control unit, a receiver coil, a transmitter coil and a support frame. Additional features include variable frequency, a fiberglass support structure, advanced electronics and display, and easy installation, the company reported.
