Bunting® Magnetics Co. offers Metal Detection Bale Inspection Conveyors for baled recyclable materials as either an independent stand-alone system or as the in-feed conveyor to the Shredder line. Whether it is bales of post-consumer carpet, plastic film, milk jugs, plastic bottles, clothing or fiber material, Bunting® has a line of Inspection Conveyors to inspect the bales to see if there are any metal objects like aluminum cans, scrap metal to hammer heads within your bales of material that could damage your Shredder and/or contaminate your product stream.

Bales of material are usually placed by fork lift on the in-feed portion of the conveyor against optional backstops. They are then run through a Metal Detector that is sized for your bales to detect metal contamination within the bale itself. The triple coil detector checks for all types of metal objects within the bale and then double checks it before conveying the bale out to be down loaded or feed directly onto an inclined Shredder Feeder Conveyor into the Shredder. The inspection conveyor can also paint mark the contaminated bales so they can be set in a segregated area for further tear open inspection. The clean bales can then be placed in the “clean” storage stack or fed into your Shredder.
