Metal Detector Conveyors

Whole Log Metal Detector Conveyor

Log Conveying Equipment - Whole Log Metal Detecting Belt Conveyor

The Mellott Whole Log Metal Detector.

  • Designed to convey logs lengthwise through a metal detecting coil.
  • They can be manufactured to be used with many brands of metal detecting coils.
  • The 3/8” formed plate trough has sloped sides. The sloped sides keep the log centered, helping to prevent jams when transitioning to the downstream conveyor.
  • The sides are extended up vertically above the sloped sides to help prevent the coil from being damaged by crooked logs.
  • Drive options include a c-face electric motor with speed reducer or a hydraulic motor. Both drives use a 140 roller chain to connect to the drive shaft.
  • A separate sub-frame is supplied for most metal detecting coils.
  • Metal detector belt conveyors for cants and timbers are also available.

We have an onsite engineering and design team capable of meeting your specific needs. We will consult and coordinate with you to provide the best options for your application.
