The Pharmatron was designed specifically for the pharmaceutical industry. It can be used in conjunction with all tablet presses and dedusting machines to sense and reject metal contaminants in the product stream. The unit utilizes high-speed microprocessor technology along with digital 2-channel signal input and processing capabilities. Its 1 MHz operating frequency handles high product flow rates and helps reduce the loss of good product. It features adjustable sensitivity as well as convenient working height and angle adjustments. Equipped with the Quick Disconnect reject option, the Pharmatron can be cleaned in seconds without using tools or dismantling the unit. Detector-Separators use electronic sensors and rejection systems engineered to remove contaminants quickly and minimize loss of good product. For added control, many units have both adjustable sensitivity and a programmable Product Effect Compensation feature that suppresses false signals caused by product or by non-metallic particles.
