Vertical Fall Metal Detector Insight VF

Vertical Fall Metal Detector Insight VF

The Insight VF vertical fall metal detector, from Lock Inspection Systems, is ideal for free fall production lines with minimal space.

At a processing speed of 50 tons per hour, the Insight VF vertical fall metal detector is specifically designed for installation between gravity feed hoppers and bagging or weighing systems. The system is suitable for pivot or fixed mounting and is equipped with a cow bell or sealed flap reject mechanism. The VF Vertical Fall can achieve best-in-class sensitivity due to the smaller aperture size and offers exceptional performance on conductive products such as shredded cheese.

The new conveyor design of this vertical fall metal detector incorporates modular belting with an end drive unit that eliminates sprockets and chains. All flat surfaces have been removed and hollow tubing has been eliminated. The system meets OSHA, ANCI, CSA and AMI specifications
