The Protector HD

Digital Mining and Aggregate Metal Detector


Operational efficiency is critical to the success of your company. Tramp metal contamination means downtime, lost production, costly repairs, and lost man-hours. Tramp metal contamination can stem from a variety of sources, including:

  • Bucket teeth, shanks, and pins.
  • Drill bits hammer shafts.
  • Roof bolts and other structural steel.
  • Tools
  • Rebar, tool steel, or other fabrication scrap.
  • Ground waste from previous work.

Although magnets are, and should be, your primary defense against tramp metal, magnets are useless when it comes to stainless steel, high-manganese steel, contaminants too large for them to lift, or contaminants trapped under burden. A Protector HD metal detector is the last line of defense before your crusher.

  • Rugged, heavy-duty steel construction is designed to take a beating and keep on running.  You won't have to worry about replacing coils every time they get hit, as they're encased in an armored chassis protecting the coils, internal wiring and electronics. 
  • Patented digital technology ensures that the detector will work in any environment.  You can tune out the small pieces that won't cause harm and only detect the larger pieces that could damage downstream equipment.
  • Easy-to-use digital operator interface means you can set it and forget it.  You won't have to worry about nuisance trips unnecessarily stopping your operation.
  • Auto-balances and auto-learns product, eliminating rebalancing procedures and the guesswork associated with analog "radio knob" controls.
  • A variety of metal marking systems are available to allow you to readily locate the metal, remove it, and get back to business.
  • Programmable contacts for full PLC integration and reject-device control for automated control of waste gates or belt plow systems.
  • Sized to fit Conveyor Equipment Manufacturers Association (CEMA) standard.      Installation is easy, the removable side plate means you don't have to cut the belt, or unsplice it, to install.

Don't risk your business success.  For less than the cost of one crusher repair, the Advanced Detection Systems Protector HD metal detector is an economical way to ensure your operation runs smoothly.  Simply call us today and we'll start working on a solution for you.  414-672-0553
