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.

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 Food Inspection

X-Ray food inspection, how safe is it? Airline cabin crew and pilots are exposed more than operators of x-ray food evaluation machines. Facts and this are summarised in a paper a pioneer of merchandise evaluation technologies including inline analysis and x-ray, from the Bizerba Product Inspection team. The business hopes that this paper will relieve any reservations about the security of food also this has been about the safety of operators of machines using an x-ray food inspection machine. The paper, titled “How Safe is the X-ray Inspection of Food? , clarifies the nature of x-ray when compared with a substance that is radioactive, and points out that the degree of radiation used for x-ray food inspection from the food business is low.

The paper explains the nature of x-ray examination equipment structure, which in most cases goes beyond the standards. X-ray evaluation of food was adopted by increasing numbers of food makers due to its efficacy and accuracy in detecting foreign bodies inside food products such as stones and glass. The proof shows that food that’s good before an  x-ray is as good and just as tasty afterwards. Also, operators working with x-ray food inspection or examination systems are protected by laws and by expert equipment design.

 X-Ray Food Inspection- Safety

In conclusion, consumers and traders have nothing to be concerned about. To start with, it’s significant to comprehend the distinction between x-ray and radioactivity. While x-ray is a form of electromagnetic radiation, they’re electrically generated, and may be switched on and off. In every day activity, every person on Earth is subjected to several forms of radiation, known as background radiation. The International System of Units for radiation dose is that the Sievert, however occupational exposure levels are usually so low that millisieverts and microsieverts are generally utilised. The average human receives about 2, 400 Sv of background radiation in a year, that generally far exceeds that of the radiation exposure received from an x-ray examination system in the food industry.

X-Ray Food Inspection – Normal exposure

In comparison, pilots and cabin crew, who spend more time in altitude, are subjected to greater levels of cosmic radiation, as there’s less of  the Earth’s atmosphere to filter it out when flying, together with frequent flyers absorbing around 4, 400 Sv annually. X-ray food inspection doesn’t cause the meals to become radioactive, just as an individual doesn’t become radioactive after having a chest x-ray.

X-Ray Food with the XRE inspection system

This system will not miss anything. Why not watch our You tube video highlighting this must have equipment for your food production facility.

X-Ray Food & Metal Detection

Metal detectors can find metal residues which enter a product during production. Any and all types of ferrous and non-ferrous metals in packaged and unpack-aged piece goods. Separation systems may also be connected in order to enhance the Overall Equipment Effectiveness (OEE). Furthermore this becomes increasingly important in food production.

The OEE measures the added value of a machine or system. It quantifies the total efficiency of a machine or plant based on availability or a production infrastructure, machine output and quality achieved by a company.

The OEE default value is currently between 40 and 60 percent. With our inspection systems and further solutions we leverage optimisation potentials on the basis of relevant machine data. And this is how we create synergies: By combining our inspection systems with our BRAIN2 software. Completed by supplementing it by our service then we are able to increase the OEE value in your production.

As our solutions analyse the production processes and can work as some type of early warning system in order to obtain the highest possible effectiveness of the process.

On this basis the OEE value will be optimised. A clear advantage, you receive sound solutions which raise the OEE to the best possible level in your company. Remove contaminated packages from the operator side.

X-Ray Food Inspection

X-ray inspection systems detect metal contaminants and other foreign bodies in products such as glass, ceramics, stones or plastic. The perfect product to X-Ray food.  They also “see” incomplete goods. Within milliseconds they evaluate an image. The devices quickly reject affected packages. The ideal system for ready meal food inspection.

Also consider using the metal detection system with a dynamic verifiable checkweighers CWE Maxx. Ensuring a seamless and trouble free production of your goods.

X-Ray Food Optical inspection

Finally the optical inspection systems with vision ensure perfect packaging and a high-quality appearance of the products. The devices find and quickly sort out packages which were incorrectly labelled, improperly sealed, have the wrong packaging or unreadable bar codes.
