Pipeline System Model 426
Model 426 pipeline metal detection system has been developed to inspect products such as meat slurries, jams, sauces, and dairy products. This system is USDA approved for federally inspected meat and poultry applications.
The compact design includes a rotary activated valve, inspection tube, metal detector search head, and air controls. This package can be ceiling suspended or mounted on a mobile floor stand. The control unit can be mounted either to the system frame or remotely in your plant.
Utilizing the latest in Digital Signal Processing technology, the DSP control unit delivers the highest level of metal detection to date. The advanced user-friendly interface allows quick and easy application setup. A comprehensive self-diagnostic system monitors the metal detectors performance for potential circuitry changes, it is also capable of sensing the speed and position of the reject gate. A multi-level password security system insures maximum performance by limiting access to critical settings.
Model 426 – H is a hinge mounted pipeline system for use on sausage stuffer machines, such as the Handtmann VF20 or Vemag DC100. This system includes the same items as listed above. Available in hinge mounted or floor stand design.
Standard pipe sizes are :
- 2” nom. I.D. Model 426 – 2

When using an in line metal detection system you should consider how the system will be tested. There are two basic methods for testing the model 426 pipeline system.
1) In line insertion
This method is the only way to confirm that the whole system is functioning correctly. During a test procedure you would insert a metal contaminate into the product flow. A second valve after the metal detection system should be installed to capture the test product in a holding vessel. If all works correctly you would divert the metal contaminate into the reject bin. If for any reason the system fails you will be able to recover the metal sample in the holding vessel.
2) Metal Detector Test
To determine that the system is detecting metal and operating the reject device, you can pass a metal sample between the product tube and the search head. This method however, does not confirm that metal within the product would be rejected correctly. Method 1 should be the primary testing procedure.
The Tek DSP metal detector is capable of automatically sounding an alarm if the reject device fails to operate or operates too slow.
High Temperature Or Pressure
Teflon pipe coated with F.R.P. for high temperature or pressure applications
A PC software package which would monitor all critical parameters of each metal detector on-line. Automatically generates data for reports
