12.03.2018 Vibratory conveyor designed for integration with metal detector

Key Technology, Walla Walla, WA – with European manufacturing facilities also in the Netherlands and Belgium – has introduced a specialised Iso-Flo® vibratory conveyor 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, Key’s vibratory system has been designed to reduce maintenance and minimise product spillage while significantly improving sanitation in the interests of food safety. 


Recently upgraded with the latest hygienic design features, this unique vibratory conveyor combines three conveyor bed sections: a stainless steel infeed, a non-metallic section that passes through the metal detector’s aperture and a final stainless steel section with a reject device. Key designs each system to accommodate the customer’s preferred metal detector and aperture size. The infeed section can incorporate a screen capability to scalp or remove fines, small particles or water, if needed. Popular 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.
