Vistus Freefall

The freefall metal detection system Vistus ensures the reliable inspection and removal of metallic foreign bodies from any kind of food products in powder or granule form that is transported with the use of gravity through a pipe, e.g. milk powder, wheat, nuts or cornflakes.

Perfect your metal detection system; choose the right components to suit your needs for your remote terminal using the modular principle for customisation with search coil, pipe, separator and, optionally, True In-Process Validation.

All components of the entire system can be used in zone 22 potentially explosive environments as per the provisions of Directive 94/9/EC.


  • Minimum installation height for easy integration into any application
  • True In-Process Validation. This functionality guarantees correct performance testing
  • Cost effective control of up to four search coils via one terminal
