Metal Detection Capability

Metal detectors have a fairly uniform detection capability to magnetic metals, but for non-magnetic metals their detection capability is almost directly related to the electrical conductivity characteristic of the metal -- a more conductive metal is easier to detect, a less conductive metal is more difficult to detect.

The chart below illustrates a number of non-magnetic metals for comparison:
