The concept of 'sensitivity' in metal detection

The concept of 'sensitivity' in metal detection

22 Mar 2021

There are so many factors involved that sensitivity often seems to be the result of the sum of these factors, but is it?

Sensitivity is more than the ball diameter of a reference ball. Think of silks, drill shavings or splinters. These often appear large, but ultimately the sensitivity to them is small. A sensitivity difference of 0.2-0.5 mm may not seem much. However, this has a major impact on the ability of any system to detect non-round and irregularly shaped contaminants.

During this Live Webinar, Mettler Toledo will discuss these factors to see if the choice made in the past or present is the right one. When choosing a metal detection system, regulations are often the starting point, but is this the right approach?

Several factors influence the sensitivity of a metal detector and its ability to detect different types of metal. Each of these factors is discussed in detail in this Live Webinar. It is important to understand these factors in order to optimise your metal detection programme.
