MDE (Economy) Metal Detector

Premium and Economy series metal detectors

The secure choice for production lines

Process reliability and product safety

Recently, consumers' demands and expectations
have become increasingly discriminating
with regard to product quality.
This growing awareness of quality is reflected
by new laws and regulations affecting
the products and production processes of
practically every manufacturer.
Sartorius has risen to the challenge of meeting
the needs of producers and users alike.
Sartorius – the partner you can rely
on for process optimization.
Metal contamination is a significant
production risk, and can damage both the
profitability and reputation of a supplier.

Sartorius metal detectors and rejection systems
reliably search out metal particles and
sort out contaminated products.
They put the key to ISO 9000/ISO22000
as well as HACCP and IFS in your hands –
and enable you to assure your customers
maximum product quality thanks to optimal
detection sensitivity that meets all applicable
legal requirements.
In addition, they reduce your machine
downtime and cut your production losses.
Let us help you increase the quality
of your products!


 We make your production line safer


Sartorius metal detectors consist
of a full range of mechanical and
electronic components that can
be combined to meet your individual
expectations and needs.
We offer various mechanical
product solutions with the
following codes:
“C” stands for compact range,
which is the all-in-one system –
search coil and electronics with
integrated power supply all in
a single housing.
“P” is for pipe range that is based
on a round search coil for easy
integration into pipelines.
“H” stands for “head only,“
which means a separate search
coil to be connected to a remote
“S” is for “small” range, which
consists of exceptionally slim
search coils for installation in
extremely tight spaces or combined
with in checkweighers.
The HD type is a special,
dust-tight, washdown-resistant
version that will stand up to the
worst environmental conditions.
Our wide range of products
offers solutions for practically
all installation conditions.

Moreover, we provide two
different versions of electronic
units to meet your specific needs:
MDE with a fixed frequency –
the attractively priced solution
in a rugged design for inspection
of most products.
MDP – the premium, multifrequency
system that operates
in three selectable ranges from
60 kHz to 1 MHz with special
filter technology. Even in critical
production processes or in
products with a high degree
of electrical conductivity, metal
contaminants are reliably
