Plate metal detectors precisely detect magnetic and non-magnetic metal particles such as broken needle tips in wet and dry textile sheet materials (web and machine goods, needle-punched nonwovens, felt, web and tufted carpets, films, papers, etc.) They minimize production downtime, quality defects and production spoilage. Plate metal detectors are compact and can be retrofitted almost anywhere.
The ELS-P is a plate metal detector that is installed ahead of the carder feed and detects any magnetic or non-magnetic particles in the fibers. If metal is detected, the supply of material to the carder is stopped.
