Vector Conveyor Systems

Vector Conveyor Systems are Fortress Technology’s standardized conveyor design and are custom manufactured to meet the end user’s needs and the unique application. The heavy-duty stainless-steel conveyors maintain optimal performance under harsh conditions and heavy products with options for withstanding washdown environments.

Vector Large Bag Conveyor

Designed to transport heavy boxes or bags of product, Vector Large Bag Conveyor Systems are made from stainless steel and are custom manufactured to suit harsh applications, including washdown environments.

Vector Sanitary Conveyor

Food plants with high sanitation requirements such as meat producers, may require a Sanitary Conveyor. The Vector Sanitary Conveyor uses Fortress Technology’s standard conveyor design with angled framing and open construction to withstand washdown environments.

Custom Conveyor

Custom Conveyors are tailored to each specific application and are customized by Fortress Technology’s Engineering team to the product handling requirement, dimensional restrictions, and installation location.

Custom Sanitary Conveyor

Fortress Technology will design a bespoke conveyor system that meets the specified requirements for increased sanitation requirements and unique applications that require a custom conveyor. The Custom Conveyor uses angled framing and open construction to withstand washdown environments.

Air Blast reject

Located on the conveyor opposite the reject area, the Air Blast reject device is a nozzle that will release a sudden burst of air to blow a product off the conveyor belt and into a reject bin. The Air Blast reject is most effective with fast-moving packaged products weighing less than two pounds, such as light packs of biscuits or chocolate bars.

Belt Stop Alarm reject

Suitable for any product where automatic reject is not necessary, but generally used for heavy products that run at low rates up to 55 lbs. A Belt Stop Alarm reject will stop the conveyor belt upon metal detection and sound an alarm so that the operator is audibly notified of product rejection. The operator can then safely remove the product from the conveyor belt for inspection with an offline metal detector.

Diverter Reject

Upon detection, the Diverter reject device actuates a paddle to redirect product flow diagonally across the belt and into a locked reject bin. The paddle then pivots across the belt for the following products to continue to be conveyed down the production line. It is best suited for medium to light packaged products with low pack weights of less than 15 lbs.

Drop-nose Reject

As a product moves over the Dropnose section of the conveyor, the belt will pivot downwards, and products will drop down into a reject bin or onto another conveyor. The pivoting section will then rise back up to resume the transfer of products along the production line. The Dropnose reject is ideal for products such as large 50-100 lb bags that run at lower speeds.

Flap Gate Reject

The Flap Gate reject uses a flap that, upon detection, pivots outward, directing products with the back side of the flap into the reject area located under the outfeed end of the conveyor. With the flap in its normal position, the product flows off the top side of the flap and onto the downstream equipment. This reject device is best suited to bulk flow unpackaged or loose lightweight products.

Kicker Reject

Best suited for medium to large products such as bulk bags or boxes, the Kicker reject uses a paddle on a linear actuator to push the defected product off the conveyor belt. This reject option is ideal for packaged products under 30 lbs., such as bags of pet food or flour. Heavy duty options are available for heavier products that run at relatively low rates.

Heavy-duty Kicker Reject

A step up from the Kicker reject device, the Heavy-Duty Kicker is robust and designed to push large, heavy products such as large bags off the conveyor belt. Upon rejection, a transverse paddle on a guided actuator arrangement is activated to remove products over 30 lbs. from production.

Bi-directional Sweep Reject

The Bi-directional Sweeper reject uses a paddle positioned over the width of the conveyor to sweep rejected products across the belt. The paddles remain in position till the next rejected product arrives, where it will sweep across the belt in the opposite direction and reside there.

Overhead Sweep reject

The Overhead Sweep reject uses a paddle located above the products conveyed through the production line. Upon rejection, the paddle sweeps across the width of the belt to eject products into a reject area or bin. Upon removing the product from the line, the paddle immediately returns to its home position. The Overhead Sweep reject is a suitable option where a standard kicker may be cumbersome due to the reject cylinder protruding from the system. It is effective to use with Discreet products up to 30 lbs.

Retracting Belt reject

Upon detection of a defective product, the exit roller will retract, exposing a void where the product will fall into a reject area or bin. This reject type is relatively gentle and limits potential product trapping when correctly set up. This type of reject is ideal for a wide range of product types, whether packaged, unpackaged, discrete or bulk flow.

Reversing Reject

Effective for bulk flow product applications, the Reversing reject comprises an inspection belt that waterfalls the product onto the reject belt. Upon rejection, the belt will reverse direction for a suitable time to reject all products into a reject area usually located under the outfeed of the inspection belt. This reject can be implemented with a switch to reverse automatically during product testing and handle most bulk flow applications.

No Reject

Where end users would like to handle the rejection themselves, the inspection system will not have a reject device. Upon detection, the system will signal the end user to alert them of the event.

Lift-Nose Reject

The Liftnose reject is best used with discreet products relatively low in height. Upon detection, a pivoting on the out-feed shaft conveyor raises the in-feed end of the conveyor belt and exposes a reject area underneath the reject conveyor. Product waterfalls from the feeding conveyor directly into the reject area as the lift-nose conveyor returns to its home position before the next good pack approaches.

Custom-Built Industrial Conveyor Belt Metal Detectors

Vector Conveyor Systems are custom manufactured from heavy duty stainless steel to fit the unique metal detector and application. The robust conveyors maintain optimal performance under harsh conditions and heavy products, and can be built to withstand washdown environments. Reject systems such as air blasts, kickers, simple retracts and belt stop alarms are available and modular in design depending on the type of product being inspected. Hygienic conveyor belts are tailored to each application, including various belt sizes, belt configurations, and sensors that maximize detector accuracy and efficiency.

Renowned for their superior accuracy and reliability, Vector Conveyor Systems act as essential Critical Control Points in HACCP systems, effectively identifying and rejecting potential contamination.
