As you increase discrimination the machine will ignore other metals like tin foil, can tabs, nails, and coins. Low discrimination means all metal including soil minerals, are picked up. The machine does the hard work, adjusting itself as you move around. Well, if you’re a pick-it-up-and-go type, knock yourself out with automatic ground balancing. Metal detectors are so sensitive that they pick up magnetic signals from jewelry, relics, coins, minerals, and even salt.
If the metal detector is to be used on parks, playgrounds, and other dry ground sites, then an all purpose metal detector is ideal. Get the most out of your Thermo Scientific™ APEX Metal Detector with a high quality conveyor suitable for most food packaging and bulk flow metal detection applications.
Metal Detectors that are used to detect ferrous and non-ferrous metals as they pass through a detector in gravity free-fall applications. Metal detectors are highly sensitive pieces of equipment, and need to be protected from environmental interferences such as vibration and other electrical fields. Material Handling Equipment A large lineup of material handling equipment for the Recycling, Metal Stamping, Plastics and Food industries. Mining Aggregate Our line of rugged separation equipment protects your belts and crushers from tramp metal while withstanding the harshest environment.
The Gold Bug operates on a 19khz frequency so it can locate the tiniest pieces of gold. Ground balancing is essential and the Spectra has a built-in real-time function that automatically changes as you move around. In fact, if you get fed up with coin hunting you can use this machine for everything else with a few tweaks. The Spectra V3i is coveted by all metal detectorists – it’s the Ferrari of the detecting world.
Improve operational efficiency and decrease costs with a uniquely-designed heavy-duty metal detector built for the most demanding food processing and packaging environments. The frequency range refers to the number of electronic waves that more help are used in detecting metal. Along with an ergonomic design, an easy set-up also makes your metal detector pleasant and easy to use. A large selection of headphones and headphone accessories designed for all kind of metal detecting.
Over 50 years of experience manufacturing industrial metal detector equipment, MDI has a reputation you can trust, quality products that are top of the line, and a dedicated service team. The Minelab gold detectors are the best at ground balancing (ignoring ground noise) and being super sensitive to all sizes of gold at depth, while treasure detectors have advanced discrimination functions to differentiate between metals (i.e: dig the treasure, not the trash). The GPX 4800 Gold Metal Detector, featuring Minelab’s exclusive technologies builds on the strengths of its predecessor the GPX 4500 also offers some of the features found in the high performance GPX 5000 Gold Metal Detector.
A top-of-the-range machine like this needs automatic and manual ground balancing – good news then that the Equinox 600 has them plus 25 levels of sensitivity. Designed for serious treasure hunters the Equinox 600 has Minelab’s Multi-Q simultaneous multi-frequency technology. Automatic ground balancing and a numeric display telling you what type of metal you’ve found made the Fisher F75 a pleasure to use, and its pre-set search modes save lots of time.
If you want to buy only one machine, and intend to hunt on land and dry sands, choose multi-frequency as it will have a better discrimination range. This may sound like a daft question to some, but I’ve found that proper kit makes metal detecting a more pleasant experience, but there’s no uniform, feel free to wear a mankini if you prefer. You never know what you’ll come across when you’re metal detecting and that’s part of the fun. It might sound obvious but metal is what you’ll find with a metal detector. Beaches are great places for metal detecting because beaches are regularly and actively used by the public.
Our focus will be on consumer metal detectors, but most of the information also applies to mounted detection systems, like the ones used in airports, as well as handheld security scanners. For instance, some people think of combing a beach in search of coins or buried treasure. Kelly, ‘Treasure hunting in Ireland – its rise and fall’, Antiquity, Vol.
