Physical Contamination Detection Systems in the Food and Beverage Industry
Start: Production Line Entry
Critical Point #1: Incoming Goods: Bulk Ingredients and Materials
To ensure the highest quality end-products, use metal detection and x-ray inspection machines on incoming goods.
Critical Point #2: Unpackaged or Raw Goods
Unpackaged or raw goods added to the production line can bring physical contaminants into your valuable products. Metal detection and x-ray inspection machines can help monitor and detect impurities and physical contaminants.
Critical Point #3: Packaged Goods
A review of packaged goods presents an opportunity to ensure product integrity and quality, checkweighers can confirm product weight and uniformity, while x-ray inspection and metal detection can detect any physician contaminants, removing affected products from the line with ease.
Critical Point #4: End of Production Line
A final inspection of all goods and packaged products can ensure overall product quality. Use metal detection and x-ray inspection to ensure your brand reputation remains positive.
End: Quality Assurance
The Importance of Reliable Detection Systems
The use of metal detection and x-ray inspection systems can be implemented into an existing production line at any stage, depending on your brand’s needs. Checkweighers can be added once packaging is complete.
X-ray inspection machines are designed to offer reliable foreign object detection of bulk materials and unpackaged and packaged products. Detect high-density materials like metal, ceramic, stone, plastic or glass in:
Bulk flow products or unpackaged products, like almonds, spinach, carrots, or dried fruit
Packaging products, including cardboard or plastic boxes, pouch bags, jars or cans
Reliably detect iron and non-ferrous metals such as aluminum or stainless steel and other metal impurities at any stage of the production process.
Use metal detectors on:
- Incoming goods, like grains, sugar or flour
- Unpackaged or raw goods, such as fruit or vegetables, dairy products, and spices
- Packaged products such as ready meals, soups, sausages, and bakery products.
Checkweighers prevent damage to your brand reputation by eliminating incorrect fill quantities, missing products in a container, or large cavities in products. checkweighers offer an efficient method of automatic food weighing and inspection, helping establish full quality control without halting the line.
