VF 818 S vacuum filler

The all-rounder for small- and medium-scale producers

The VF 818 S vacuum filler of the VF 800 vacuum filler generation, with its wide range of applications and performance rating, is optimally designed for the small- and medium-scale producers in the food processing industry. The production output of the VF 818 S is scalable and can be flexibly adapted to changing production requirements and increases. It is universally suitable for the gentle yet efficient processing of products such as meat, dough, fillings, vegetarian and vegan products, meat substitute, dairy, confectionery and pet food. The VF 818 S can convince with excellent product quality and consistently high production output in all applications. Depending on the application, it can also be operated using integrated inline grinding technology and other auxiliary devices as an option.

Versatile and high-performance for a wide range of products
The VF 818 S is perfectly suited for the versatile production of a wide range of products. All products are processed with utmost care and portioned accurately to the gram. It can be flexibly combined with auxiliary devices for forming and dosing or with linking and hanging lines for the automatic production of sausages.  Integration in complex line solutions down to the packaging unit is easily possible thanks to its universal interface capability.

Excellent portioning precision and product quality
The VF 818 S guarantees continuously perfect, accurate- to-the-gram portioning precision in all applications, whether using fluid, pasty and firmer products or products of medium chunk size. This is due to the vacuum filler’s robust industry-standard design, which thus ensures long-term stable portioning accuracy and at the same time guarantees excellent product quality at a consistently high level.

Inline grinding technology for perfect meat and meat substitutes
A particular strength of the VF 818 S is the production of meat and meat substitute products. Both clipped and linked cooked, fresh and dry sausage products are possible. Additional product and process optimisation can be achieved through the use of integrated Handtmann inline grinding technology. The advantages of integrated grinding are particularly evident in the production of dry and fresh sausages, but also in products made from ground material, such as minced meat, or shaped products.

Optimum hygienic and ergonomic design
The VF 818 S has been given a hygienic design in line with the latest guidelines. Automated pre- and interim-cleaning programmes for hopper and feed system and a cleaning quality that can be easily verified guarantee excellent hygiene conditions. Practical advantages in handling and ergonomics perfected to the last detail ensure user-friendliness and highly efficient working.
