Oretronic IV Tramp Metal Detector

Prevent your profit from turning into scrap. Thermo Scientific™ Ramsey™ Oretronic IV Tramp Metal Detectors protect expensive crushers, conveyors and other process equipment from damage by tramp metal. Designed for belt conveyors moving coal, iron pellets, minerals, aggregates and other bulk materials, Oretronic Tramp Metal Detectors detect all types of metallic scrap that conventional metal detectors may miss, including bucket teeth, manganese steel mantles, bore crowns, bar scrap, chains and tools. It can even detect tramp metal when buried in wet conductive materials.
