Used Tablet Metal Detectors

Tablet metal detectors are used to inspect tablets and capsules for metal contamination. They are, most commonly used in pharmaceutical manufacturing processes. A tablet metal detector captures all potential metal contaminants including ferrous and non-ferrous materials, even the hardest-to-detect non-magnetic stainless steel contaminants.

A tablet metal detector uses alternating currents that pass through a coil producing a magnetic field, if the magnetic field changes it has detected metal in the substance and the tablet metal detector rejects the tablet through a chute.

Federal Equipment Company offers used tablet metal detectors in a number of different configurations, and models by Lock, Loma, and Safeline, among other manufacturers.
