Great achievement … the DETEC industrial metal detector

Mr Ted Appleby designed the first DETEC industrial metal detector back in the early 1960s to solve a problem of machinery damage caused by tramp metal in bulk materials handling plants where machinery is being fed by conveyor systems.

Since Mr Appleby's early designs, the Melbourne based manufacturer TSS – through continuous research and development – has installed thousands of metal detector systems across Australia, with exports to 20 world countries.
 
The development of the DETEC metal detector has been a remarkable achievement.
 
From an original design at a home garage, these detectors can now be found operating in coal, gold, iron ore, aggregate, copper, cement, brick, recycling and many other industries in global markets.
 
With an early model operating in an Australian quarry 50 years on, DETEC Metal detectors have a history of performance, with an average lifespan exceeding 20 years.
 
The TSS Company is a member of the Australian Made Campaign.
