VF 808 S vacuum filler

The compact vacuum filler for a wide performance range for small-scale, medium-scale and industrial producers.

The compact VF 808 S vacuum filler is universally designed for the small-scale to the industrial performance segment of food processors, as the production output is scalable and can be flexibly adapted to changing production requirements and increases. Within the scope of its versatility it can also be optionally used with the integrated GD 455 inline grinding system for optimised production processes and in consequence maximum product quality. The VF 808 S is also characterised by excellent ergonomic and hygienic design as well as its Industry 4.0 capability for modern product and production management.

Portioning precision in applications for small-scale to industrial producers

The compact VF 808 S with its medium conveyor size 2 is ideally suited for the production of a wide range of products from small-scale to industrial producers. Fluid, pasty and firmer products but also products of medium chunk size are gently processed and portioned accurately to the gram. It can also be used flexibly with auxiliary devices for forming and dosing, as well as in automated production processes that do not require feeding via the arm lifting device or work with alternative feed systems. 

Process and product optimisation with inline grinding technology

A particular strength of the VF 808 S vacuum filler is its optional combination with the Handtmann GD 455 inline grinding system. Process optimisation combined with maximum product quality are guaranteed, especially in the production of sausage and meat products, such as fresh and raw sausage or products made from ground material such as minced meat, burgers or cevapcici, but also of meat substitute products.

Excellent hygiene, ergonomics and operating costs

The VF 808 S vacuum filler provides practical advantages in handling and ergonomics that have been perfected to the last detail and thus ensure highly efficient working, and has been given a hygienic design in line with the latest guidelines. Automated pre- and interim-cleaning programmes and a cleaning quality that can be easily verified guarantee excellent hygiene conditions. Energy-efficient servo drives and low wear due to robust industry-standard components reduce operating costs to a minimum.
