Sawmill Metal Detector Conveyors

Whole Log Metal Detector Conveyor

Whole Log Metal Detector Conveyor

The Mellott Whole Log Metal Detector Conveyor is designed to convey logs lengthwise through a metal detecting coil.

  • Manufactured primarily with the MDI whole log metal detector surround system
  • 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.
