Contaminant removal guarantees pure food

Varicon Plus - Anuga

At Anuga Foodtec 2012 which takes place in Cologne from 27- 30 March, S+S Separation and Sorting Technology GmbH will be exhibiting magnet systems, metal detectors/separators, and X-ray scanners at our stand D010 in hall 5.2. Particular emphasis will be given to the completely new VARICON+ metal detection system featuring the C-Scan GHF detection coil, and the RAYCON product inspection system with high-resolution imaging and enhanced detection.
As a trade fair highlight at the Anuga Foodtec
2012,S+S presents the VARICON+ metal detection
system with the new C-Scan GHF detection coil.


All the new S+S systems on show have been developed further with enhanced hygienic design features. The VARICON+ metal detection system can be specified in two versions, either with the standard  GLS detection coil, or with the new C-Scan GHF detection coil, offering three frequencies and enhanced detection capability as standard.

The detection coil design guarantees highest metal sensitivity throughout the whole inspection area. The C-Scan GHF detection head features improved hygienic design with a sloped top and totally integrated electronics ensures no water or other traps. C-Scan GHF uses the GENIUS+ Control Unit with standard full colour touch screen panel for intuitive and easy operation. Where data acquisition is required, the metal detector can be integrated in the customer's PDA network using a variety of interface options eg., WS Food, Ethernet, USB, WLAN or Profibus.

The RAYCON X-ray product inspection system range has been enhanced by the addition of a new High Resolution version providing improved detection. RAYCON detects contaminants that due to their density, chemical composition, or mechanical dimensions absorb X-radiation to a higher degree than the surrounding product. Depending on the product, the system will now detect stainless steel contaminants down to 0.3 millimetres.

The S+S product range on show at Anuga is further complemented by an ATEX-certified version of the GF 4000 metal separator for pneumatic conveying applications and the LIQUISCAN VF+ metal separator for the inspection of paste and viscous products encountered in the meat and sausage. This version is designed for use after vacuum operated fillers.

Erwin Trauner, S+S manager for the food industry, sums up the S+S Anuga Foodtec 2012 trade fair presence: "As specialists in detection and separation technologies, S+S is exhibiting a complete product range for every process stages, product type, and conveying method, and for all critical control points of the production process, all from one source."
