Sesotec Varicon+

Conveyor based Metal detection systems

  • Space efficient metal detector individual and packaged goods up to 50 kg
  • Hygienic design, easy clean
  • Available with a wide range of detector heads
  • High stability, precision inline metal detection with very short metal-free zone (MFZ)
  • Compliant with BRC, IFS and HACCP standards
  • Dry and wet environment versions


  • Highest scanning sensitivity with INTUITY metal detector due to multi-simultaneous-frequency technology for optimal product compensation
  • Rugged construction with hygienic open section framework
  • Economic and readily available with competitive lead times
  • INTUITY or GLS series detection coil
  • Conveyor belt range from 200 mm to 500 mm belt width
  • Standard “stop-on-detect” control or automatic rejection options depending on the application

The VARICON+ metal detection system detects all metal contaminants (ferrous, non-ferrous and stainless steel) – even when enclosed in the product. Designed for a wide range of packaged and unpackaged products.

Application specific (pusher or air-blast) with lockable collecting container are available as standard options. Other separating systems (swivel arm, retracting belt, or reject flap) are available on request.

  • Inline inspection at almost every stage of the production line from goods inwards to end of line applications.
  • Standard belt widths from 200 to 500 mm and effective aperture heights from 100 to 350 mm.
  • The VARICON+D series is designed for dry areas, the VARICON+W series for more hostile environments.
  • State-of-the-art detection coil technology with short metal-free-zones which allow minimum conveyor length
  • Open, easily accessible design allows easy cleaning and plant hygiene procedures
  • Rugged stainless-steel construction enhances sensitivity and system stability
  • Surface finish and conveyor design meet food industry cleaning and hygiene requirements
  • Highest metal detection performance with multi-simultaneousfrequency technology
  • Reduced faulty rejects of products due to high mechanical stability and high interference immunity; largely insensitive to vibration, impacts, and temperature fluctuations
  • Hygienic design, easy to clean, no dirt-collection edges
  • Easy and safe operation
  • Audit-safe solution

Two metal detectors, INTUITY or GLS, are available.
Common features INTUITY and GLS:

  • DSP processing and quartz-stabilised operating frequency
  • Sophisticated microprocessor technology with selfmonitoring, auto-balancing, and temperature compensation
  • Product compensation with auto-learn function
  • Multi-product memory
  • Special EMC combined-filtering for external interference suppression
  • Password-protected system logbook and menu driven validation system for HACCP, IFS and BRC compliance
