Food Contaminant Detection

Food Contaminant Detection, or inspection systems. Due to the amount of recent food product recalls. Food inspection systems and food traceability software are now a standard requirement in all areas from food production to food distribution.

Use the very latest technology in your food production line and there will be no need to worry about product recalls. Incorrectly programmed systems will lend them selves to failure. Rely on Bizerba to set up your production lines to ensure that it is done correctly and compliantly.

What Food Contaminant Detection is right for me?

A food detection system or inspection system. There are three main areas to look at. X-Ray Food machines. Vision inspection systems and Metal detectors. Using a combination of these will guarantee that all the products are perfect when they leave your premises.

However, you will not always need to incorporate all three inspection systems. Food containment detection can normally be done with only one system. Depending on the plant the food produced and the contamination risks within the plant.

One of the newest inspection systems Bizerba has developed is the new SealSecure inspection system. Used in conjunction with a checkweigher, the vision inspection system will detect and reject all and any packages that are not the correct weight. Over fill or under fill. Labelling incorrectly placed or damaged production items.

Watch the SealSecure Packaging Inspection video.

Watch food contaminant detection in progress. 

Used in conjunction with a checkweigher the vision system will identify any inferior products, used inline with a food x-ray system or metal detector. This will ensure nothing will slip through the net during production.

Furthermore, consider using Bizerba BRAIN software. Guaranteeing a production line that is running as efficiently as possible. The software can be adapted to your individual requirements and can also be used in conjunction with existing software from third parties.

For more information on the products and services on offer, you can contact Bizerba for a free site survey or just call for a brief discussion. We are here to help with all your food production requirements.

Xray Food Inspection Explained

Xray Food Inspection Explained. Completely different from the medical radiation x-ray systems.

X-rays are used for many different purposes and it’s important not to confuse those used for food inspection with radioactive materials, such as uranium. Radioactive materials are physical sources of radiation, which emit radiation continuously and can’t be switched off.  By contrast, X-rays used for food inspection can be switched on and off, like light from a bulb. When the electricity supply to the X-ray system is switched off, the flow of X-rays ceases instantaneously.

In addition the amount of radiation omitted is minute, even if you stood under one of these units it would not pose any threat to health, no more x-rays are omitted compared to every day background radiation which is around us at all times.  X-Ray food systems are ideal for identifying contaminants including, bone, rubber, plastic and metals, the list is endless. Normally used with checkweighing systems offering you full control over your production line. “Checkweighing Explained

X-Ray Inspection Systems XRE_2
X-Ray Inspection Systems XRE-2

Detection’s are made in packaged and unpack-aged food. Extensive testing on products long before the install as part the consultation process. Packaged food for manufactures is at times challenging, normally in the past a simple metal detector was sufficient enough to adhere to the food retail industry strict standards.

X-Ray Inspection Systems – Compliance

Consider nowadays major food retailers demand extremely high quality standards. Not letting anything slip into the supply chain or onto the shelves in the shops. X-Ray inspection systems, now required to meet these high standards.  The flexibility and the various items that are detected make this the preferred detection system.

Used in conjunction with a vision inspection system and an in motion checkweighing system the combination is formidable. Additionally used with statistical and data capture software offering full food trace ability from supply, production and delivery.

X-Ray Inspection Systems – Set Up

The set up would normally be as follows, left to right or right to left. From the filling systems to the packaging system where required then onto the checkweigher. From there it would pass though the x-ray inspection systems before travelling to the final check the vision inspection system.

At all times the data is recorded and can be accessed in real time or historical records can be recalled. Each stage will have pushers to reject the items passing through the conveyor or lines. recording monitoring and identifying any trends in the rejection process.
