Xtreme Vertical, Form, Fill & Seal (VFS)

The Xtreme Vertical Form, Fill & Seal (VFS) units are designed to mount into space-restricted areas below Vertical Form and Fill machines. With its innovative design, the VFS Metal Detector connects to a customer's existing stainless steel hopper and forming tube with simple Jacobs connectors.

This compact unit requires no metal-free area above or below the sensing head. Its control circuitry allows for instantaneous electronic recovery from phase adjustments, as well as field switchable narrow zone/wide zone detection capabilities. The Eriez VFS Metal Detector is suitable for washdown, and features food grade pipe and stainless steel construction. The VFS is excellent for detection & removal of ferrous, non-ferrous & stainless metal contaminants in products prior to final packaging.

Eriez' Xtreme VFS Metal Detectors meet stringent standards for food processing environments and offer the superior sensitivity customers expect from Eriez - these units can detect millimeter-sized metal spheres.

All VFS Metal Detectors offer the same full color, intuitive icon-driven controls as Eriez' other Xtreme Metal Detector systems. Available in 7.5, 10, 15, 20 and 25.5 centimeter aperture sizes to meet practically any application need.
