Vistus® Pipeline detects and removes metal contaminants in pumped viscous or liquid products. The system includes well-known Vistus® electronics, intuitive touch displays and optional interfaces for monitoring and control. Different types of separators and various connections and mounting options are available.

All detectors in the Vistus® series are based on high-quality components and a broad frequency spectrum for maximum detection performance and reliability. Dialogues tailored to different user groups ensure maximum user-friendliness and thus also enable intuitive operation. A wide range of variants and dimensions are available for individual requirements and applications, enabling precise integration into the production line. Of course, we also offer individual engineered-to-order solutions on request.

Applications: Foreign object detection for the protection of consumers and production facilities

Based on over 80 years of experience, Vistus® Pipeline detects metallic foreign bodies in pumped viscous or liquid products and intelligently rejects them.

For consumer protection, there are numerous applications in the food industry. The aim is to ensure that products leave the factory free from metal contamination. In this way, Minebea Intec metal detectors support compliance with industry regulations such as HACCP, IFS and BRC. They protect brand image and avoid costly product recalls. 

Features of the Vistus® Pipeline Metal Detection Systems - Reliable metal detection for products in pipeline applications

Vistus® Pipeline and Vistus® Pipeline meat meet the most stringent sensitivity and technical requirements of manufacturers processing viscous and liquid food products such as sauces, jams, marmalades, baby foods, meat emulsions, etc. To cover a wide range of applications, the product can be configured to meet the most demanding customer requirements.

Important product features of the detection systems are:

  • Various separators available
  • Easy installation and operation
  • Prevents product recalls and ensures / enhances production line productivity
  • Also available as Vistus® Pipeline meat

Advantages and USP's

Minebea Intec develops and manufactures industrial metal detectors and metal detection systems for the inspection of food and other products, such as bulk or packaged goods. The systems detect both ferrous and non-ferrous metal and stainless steel contaminants. Reliable rejection systems ensure that all products contaminated with these metals are reliably rejected from the production line. 

Metal detectors Vistus® Pipeline and Vistus® Pipeline meat - the optimal solution for the food industry

Vistus® Pipeline and Vistus® Pipeline meat for meat applications are specifically designed to meet the needs of producers of pumped goods.

For production line and quality assurance teams, the Vistus® pipeline is a reliable tool for product safety and brand protection.

Important features of the two products:
