One of the leading suppliers of construction materials, Aggregate Industries, recently contacted Metal Detection with an enquiry for some industrial metal detectors for two of their stone conveyors.
The company, which supplies the highest quality aggregates, asphalt and ready mixed concrete needed to protect their crusher from the serious damage caused by tramp metal contamination. With the damage often costing thousands of pounds in repairs and leading to costly downtime, it was very important that Metal Detection could offer a quick turnaround on the recommended equipment.
Metal Detection (Part of the Master Magnets Group) were invited to Moorcroft Quarry in Devon to examine the conveyors and offer a solution. After evaluating the client’s requirements and the details of the process, Two TN77 metal detectors were subsequently quoted and ordered for No 1 and No 14 conveyors.
The TN77 metal detector is specifically designed for the most arduous applications in the mining and quarrying industry and will detect ferrous and manganese steel including drill rods and digger teeth.
Justin Bolt from Aggregate Industries stated that “the detectors are working extremely well and providing excellent protection for the crusher”.
