Conveyorized Metal Detector


The Thermo Scientific APEX 100 provides cost-effective protection from metal contaminants keeping your brand safe. It is based on industry-leading APEX technology.

The APEX 100 Entry Level Metal Detector Features:

  • Sensitivity levels equal to the Thermo Scientific™ DSP3 and Thermo Scientific™ Metal Eliminator detectors
  • Remote monitoring and control using Modbus™ protocol
  • Dual frequency for improved application flexibility
  • Compact and robust mechanical design for easy installation
  • Sanitary, blue, hermetic epoxy aperture lining to improve ease of use
  • Dent- and shock-resistant ABS plastic control panel with straight-lined, stainless-steel 304 case
  • Solid-state, touch operation control panel with icon-driven interface and multilingual Help and Autocalibrate functions



The Thermo Scientific Sentinel 1000 Selectscan Metal Detector ensures a high probability of detecting metal contaminants, increasing safety, and operational efficiency. Featuring intuitive software menus, advanced statistics and logging for traceability, and Autolearn software, the Sentinel 1000 Selectscan Metal Detector maximizes consumer safety and brand protection

Features and Benefits
  • Performance: Meets compliance requirements with global food safety standards and retailer codes of practice with up to 25% improved sensitivity
  • Selectscan: Select the best frequency for your application from 50-1000 kHz to increase the probability of detecting ferrous, non-ferrous and stainless steel contaminants
  • Autolearn: Rapidly establish optimal settings to improve operational efficiency
  • Touch screen controller: Intuitive menu layouts for ease of operation
  • Noise scan: Avoid frequencies susceptible to electromagnetic interference from the plant environment to optimize performance and increase product safety
  • IP69K: IP69K rating for harsh environments requiring high pressure sanitation



The Sentinel 5000 model is the first multiscan metal detection platform to scan a combination of up to five user-selectable frequencies to find all random sizes, shapes and types of metal foreign objects. Sentinel 5000 identifies contaminants that are up to 50% smaller in volume than the Thermo Scientific™ APEX 500 metal detector, and has the same dimensions and conveyor mounting for easy upgrade. The Sentinel 5000 can be used in a metal detection-checkweighing combination system, but due to its size must be mounted on a standalone infeed conveyor.

  • Frequency Range 50 to 1000 kHz, multiscan runs up to five frequencies
  • Multiscan frequency flexibility to optimize performance in any application
  • Easy-to-use touchscreen with new Autolearn function to quickly optimize set-up
  • Detailed graphical displays for phase, rejects, quality test, and detection thresholds to enable easy fine tuning and troubleshooting
  • IP69K for severe washdown and dust, eliminating repair costs
  • All electronics are integral, so mounting is easy and flexible
  • All balance functions are implemented in software, so no need for manual, hardware rebalance in the field
  • Wide ambient temperature range assuring reliability
  • Fe, non-Fe and 316 SS test pieces included to fit specific application
  • In combos the user interface is available on the metal detector AND the checkweigher screens
