Metal Detection Limits
Metal Detection Capability for Multiwall Sacks
Recently, the Technical Committee of PSSMA, which is composed of the technical leaders of PSSMA member companies, surveyed its members to assess the industry’s minimum detection capability for ferrous and non-ferrous metals using currently available technology. They also reviewed a member-provided consultant’s report on this topic.
The survey confirmed the consultant’s conclusion that the minimum achievable detection values were 2.0 mm diameter for ferrous metals and 3.0 mm diameter for non-ferrous metals under normal multiwall production conditions.
