Metal Detection System

Thermo Scientific Sentinel Multiscan


The Thermo Scientific™ Sentinel™ Multiscan Metal Detector utilizes an innovative new technology to overcome the limitation of fixed single or dual frequency metal detectors that can miss metal contaminants hidden in product signals. Multiscan technology scans a combination of up to five user-selectable frequencies from 50 to 1000 kHz, enabling users to identify contaminants up to 70 percent smaller in volume than previous technologies, including the Thermo Scientific APEX 500 metal detector, reducing the probability of an escape to near zero. It is like having five metal detectors in one.


Sentinel shows exactly what a product and various contaminants are doing, taking the guesswork out of optimizing your application.
