IQ4 Vertical Fall Metal Detection

The IQ4 Vertical Fall is a gravity fed / throat metal detector system designed for inspecting bulk, powders and granules.  It is ideal for checking early in the production process to detect metal before the product moves down the line, minimising the potential cost of wastage and protecting other processing equipment. This system is supplied complete with frame, throughput tube and a choice of sealed valve or cowbell reject, depending on application.

The IQ4 Vertical Fall offers the latest 7” colour touchscreen with the engaging user interface designed to make light work of setting, running and maintaining the IQ4 range, minimalizing user errors.

The IQ4 range of Metal Detectors offer optimized mechanics to deliver performance improvements using variable-frequency detection (31 to 882 KHz).

7” Touchscreen with a New Easy to Use Interface

Standard across all of the IQ4 range, the 7” touchscreen enables easy set-up and operation.

Faster, Better Auto-Learn
With significant improvements in signal processing, the new Auto-Learn rapidly delivers excellent detection sensitivities out of the box and provides more line uptime than ever before.  With Auto-Learn it is also capable of storing up to 200 different pre-sets, so the machine is always ready to inspect with no need to set-up a product more than once.

Best in Class Detection Levels for Magnetic and Non-magnetic Metals
The IQ4 Vertical Fall offers excellent detection levels down to 0.8mm diameter stainless steel.

Safely Handling Potentially Explosive Ingredients
If handing very fine products such as flour that present an explosion risk, then Loma have certified the gravity-fed IQ4 metal detectors for explosion risk environments.
