Key Technology Iso-Flo vibratory conveyor for integration with metal detector

Tuesday, 20 March, 2018 | Supplied by: Key Technology Australia Pty Ltd

Key Technology’s Iso-Flo vibratory conveyor is designed specifically for integration with a metal detector to inspect bulk foods on processing and packaging distribution lines. Compared to traditional plastic or fabric belt conveyor systems integrated with metal detectors, it is said to reduce maintenance and minimise product spillage while improving sanitation to maximise food safety.

With the latest sanitary design features, the vibratory conveyor combines three conveyor bed sections — a stainless steel infeed, a nonmetallic section that passes through the metal detector’s aperture and a final stainless steel section with a reject device. Each system is designed to accommodate the user’s preferred metal detector and aperture size. The infeed section can incorporate a screen capability to scalp or remove fines, small particles or water. Reject device options include a pneumatic gate within the shaker bed that opens and closes or a slide chute at the discharge of the shaker bed that switches direction if metal contamination is detected.

The stainless steel conveyor beds feature a standard rotary polish within the product contact zone or one of several optional finishes. The finish reduces bacterial attachment and biofilm formation. Oil-free drives, elastomer isolators, scalloped flat bars, stainless steel ground arms and minimal laminations help maximise equipment hygiene.

Unlike plastic or fabric belt conveyors with hidden surfaces that can trap bacteria, the product presents sanitary bed surfaces that are easy to clean. With no belting material, drive or discharge pulleys and no bearings, drive belts or sprockets, the system is designed to minimise maintenance and maximise uptime.

It is suitable when inspection is needed for frozen fruits and vegetables at the discharge of the freezer and for blanched fruits and vegetables prior to canning, as well as for frozen meat and poultry, shredded cheese and other applications.
