Press Release Summary: S+S Separation and Sorting Technology GmbH presented a new
metal-detection system for conveyors in autumn 2007: ECOLINE-D.

Press Release Body: The ECOLINE-D system detects all magnetic and non-magnetic metal
contaminations (steel, special-steel, aluminium, etc) - even those enclosed in the
product. It is used for examining packed and unpacked piece goods. ECOLINE-D is
available with standard belt widths of 200, 300 and 400 mm, and effective passage
heights of up to 300 mm. When a metal is detected the conveyor belt is stopped. As
an option metal detection can also be indicated by a flashing light and/or a signal
horn. For applications in dry areas the ECOLINE-D series is available with a flat
belt. The systems are characterised by their short overall length.

Designed specifically for the requirements of metal-detection, the complete system
guarantees highest scanning sensitivity. ECOLINE-D is the suitable standard system
for many applications, with a cost-optimised price/performance ratio and very short
delivery times.

Further performance features:

. The new GLS coil technology with an extremely short metal-free-zone allows for
short conveyor belt lengths

. The open, easily accessible design allows easy cleaning of the whole system

. The sturdy special-steel conveyor belt construction guarantees highest scanning
sensitivity and long product life

. Glass-bead-blasted surfaces comply with the hygiene requirements of the food industry

. DUAL and QUATTRO multi-frequency technology (as an option) for materials with a
high product effect and for special packaging

. Variable conveying speeds

Typical applications for ECOLINE-D are in outgoing inspection for the final metal
check after packing, during weighing or during labelling.
