Detectors protect frozen fish products from metal contamination

VARICON COMPACT: short conveyor system for reliable metal detection in the food industry

The Danish company Fisker Skanderborg A/S, a supplier of packaging equipment, has sold two Sesotec Metal Detection Systems of the type VARICON COMPACT to P. Taabbel & Co. A/S in North Jutland.

Taabbel processes all types of fish and shellfish into products for caterers at home and abroad. Taabbel‘s mission and goal is to produce food constantly at a high quality standard that complies with applicable food safety regulations, especially the requirements based on HACCP principles. The metal detection system VARICON COMPACT from Sesotec consists of a tunnel metal detector, a conveyor belt and a control unit. In the case of metal detection, the separation takes place by means of a belt stop.


VARICON COMPACT can be easily integrated into existing production lines. It detects various metallic foreign bodies in products and thanks to its high detection performance, it is ideally suited for applications in the food industry.

Effective protection for consumers, machines and image

Sesotec‘s metal detection systems, used to inspect piece goods after packaging, weighing or labelling, protect the products of manufacturers and processors in the food industry from unwanted metal contaminants. The tunnel metal detector detects metal particles contained in products quickly and efficiently. Thus, consumers, machines and the reputation of the company are well protected.

The solution for Taabbel in the fish industry

The two VARICON COMPACT metal detection systems were sold by Fisker Skanderborg A/S to P. Taabbel & Co. A/S in North Jutland. „The solution is extremely hygienic and meets the high demands of the food industry“, was the argument from Fisker´s Sales Manager Flemming Foldager to convince his customer.

For Per Toft, Technical Director of Taabbel, the quality and price of metal detection systems were the most important points. That‘s why he chooses the solution from Sesotec. „All of our frozen fish pro­ducts have passed through Sesotec‘s metal detectors. The operation of the VARICON COMPACT devices is very logical and therefore easy to learn. They fully live up to our expectations“, says Per Toft.
