The increasingly stringent product requirements formulated by quality assurance departments have generated a demand for equipment that is capable of detecting and extracting metal substances contained in intermediate and final food industry products.
A series of vibrating conveyors integrating the full benefits of VIBRAting conveying technology has been developed by VIBRA MASCHINENFABRIK SCHULTHEIS GmbH & Co. Offenbach/Main for feeding powdery or lumpy bulk materials through the annular coil of a metal detector:
The necessary overall height is very low because the product is fed horizontally. The simple trough geometry and the complete absence of mechanically moving parts on the conveyor make for extremely easy cleaning.
The product is gently conveyed in the familiar Vibra way by what are referred to as "microscopic throws" and uniformly distributed over the full width of the detector coil.
