The freefall metal detection system Vistus ensures the reliable inspection and removal of metallic foreign bodies from any kind of food products in powder or granule form that is transported with the use of gravity through a pipe, e.g. milk powder, wheat, nuts or cornflakes.

  • Minimum installation height for easy integration into any application
  • Cost effective control of up to four search coils via one terminal
  • True In-Process Validation.  This functionality guarantees correct performance testing
