Logging Metal Detector

Model P-3000 Portable Metal Detector is a lightweight, sturdy, reliable unit designed to help you locate metal in logs or standing timber.

Built in tradition of quality that marks over 50 years in the design and manufacture of Metal Detectors, the P-3000 stands ready to reduce tramp metal damage at your mill.

Metal location can be pinpointed to a narrow band along the log. The unit is easy to calibrate and operate. Sound volume can be adjusted to override noisy mill environments. Earphones may also be used.

Search Coil Distance Example

Suggested method of scanning logs

This procedure will insure that the entire surface of the log is scanned by the metal detector.

NOTE: The surface (ground, deck, concrete floor) must be free of metal in order not to interfere with electromagnetic field of the search head.

1. Place search head close to the log surface and scan the entire length of the log as shown in diagram to left.

2. Move to other side of the log and repeat step 1.

3. Roll log over as required to expose unscanned surfaces. Scan the rest of the circumference of the log covering the complete surface of the log. Overlap longitudinal sweeps to prevent dead spots.
