Metal detector VARICONcompact

The robust metal detector can be variably used in dry and wet environments. It ensures best test results for packaged or unpackaged piece goods. VARICONcompact safely checks for any contaminants enclosed in the product such as steel, stainless steel and non-ferrous metal, e.g. aluminum.

The compact metal detection system works with highest detection sensitivity. Ideally suitable for a save test performance. With its robust stainless steel conveyor belt construction the VARICONcompact inspects piece goods of up to 20 kg. A very short metal-free zone (MZ) ensures interference-resistant, reliable inline metal detection.
To suit the area of installation the system is available with a modular belt (wet area) or a flat belt (dry area). The conveyor belts are available with variable belt widths. You may choose between the following standard sizes: 300 or 400 mm. The belt control is fitted with a conveyor belt stop for metal detection.


For easy and thorough cleaning the VARICONcompact series has a hygienic design. Quality which is reflected in IFS and HACCP certifications. The VARICONcompact comes with IP65 protection. Higher IP ratings are optionally available.
