  • Treating Food Wastewater Efficiently Using Jet Aeration

    Food processing is a water-intensive process, and its wastewater byproduct is typically high in volumetric daily flow and also biochemical and chemical oxygen demand (BOD and COD), organics, and nutrients. Consequently, significant on-site treatment and resources are necessary.

  • Optimal Ultrafiltration Uses For Beverage And Dairy Companies

    When you’re sipping on a cold soda or snacking on a creamy piece of cheese, you probably don’t really think about what went into making your food or beverage. Aside from the automated production-line machines, one of the most important things that goes into the making of any soda, juice, wheel of cheese, or gallon of milk is water. Producing beverages and dairy products uses substantial amounts of water within production processes.

  • Corporate Water Stewardship: How To Streamline Water Management Practices

    Saving water saves money, but it’s also important for people and the planet. Here are five steps commercial businesses should take to improve sustainability.

  • Peracetic Acid: An Effective Wastewater Disinfectant

    Peracetic acid (PAA) is one of the most versatile and widely used disinfectants on the market. PAA has proven to be an excellent sanitizer and disinfectant in the food, beverage, cosmetic, pharmaceutical, and agriculture industries for industrial water treatment, as well as an excellent disinfectant for use in the wastewater treatment industry.

  • Bulk Flow X-ray Inspection: Providing Protection For High-Value, Unpackaged Food Production

    With nuts, seeds, dried fruits and dozens of other fresh, bulk food products are fetching sky-high prices of late due to demand and supply issues growers and producers need reliable ways to maximize production while eliminating contaminants. Gone are days of error prone human inspection or wasteful processes such as discarding partially clean products to avoid further inspection costs.

Magnetic Separators: What Are The Proper Steps To Test Magnetic Strength?

Food manufacturers rely on magnetic separation equipment to reduce foreign object contamination. This article offers guidelines when field testing magnetic strength for the most accurate results.

An Introduction To Vacuum Decay Leak Testing

Vacuum decay tests for container integrity by drawing vacuum on a package within a test chamber and monitoring the vacuum level for any decay, indicating a leak. Is it applicable for your food product?

Developments Solve Sensor Problems In Food And Beverage Industry

Food manufacturers face numerous condensation and calibration drift challenges caused by CIP/SIP. This article explores solutions for those challenges so safe, high-quality products are consistently made.

How To Properly Test Your Industrial Metal Detector

This article explains the differences between validation, verification and routine performance monitoring and gives an overview of recommended test methods for different metal detection systems.

FOOD MANUFACTURING APPLICATION NOTES & CASE STUDIES

PRODUCTS & SERVICES

With the new Thermo Scientific™ Sentinel™ 1000 Selectscan Metal Detector you can maximize consumer safety, brand protection, and operational efficiency.

Document your production and control your product inspection devices with data management software ProdX.

Throat and SuperThroat models of Safeline metal detectors are designed for installation in vertical bagging and filling applications in the food industry. Mettler-Toledo Safeline's patented "zero free metal zone" technology and custom support frames significantly reduce the space required between scales and baggers/fillers.

When choosing a test sample the most important factor to consider is the application in which it will be used.

Designed primarily for use in the inspection of bulk products, PowerPhasePRO RB metal detectors provide easy integration into all process lines.

A main factor in increasing production efficiency is a regular and exact analysis of all available production data. This is especially true in large factories and multi-site operations that are dependent on a flexible, web-based quality data management system like Comscale4, the system provided by WIPOTEC-OCS.

The regulatory landscape is constantly evolving. Product inspection technology makes it easier to meet current requirements and provide cost effective solutions that can adapt to future needs. METTLER TOLEDO's metal detection and x-ray inspection solutions make it easier to overcome your foreign body detection challenges.

The Schenck Process Vacuum Cleaning range offers a choice of Mobile, Truck / Trailer mounted or central fixed systems to suit every requirement. Removal of dust and spillage by vacuum cleaning maintains a healthy environment and reduces cross contamination caused through disturbance of dust from brushing.

The ROSS Model HSM-405SC-25 is an inline high shear rotor/stator mixing system incorporating SLIM (Solids/Liquid Injection Manifold) Technology. Unlike conventional eductors, the unique SLIM rotor/stator generates a powerful vacuum without the aid of external pumps and pulls powders directly into the mix chamber, promoting instantaneous wet out under high shear conditions. Mounted on a multipurpose skid with load cells, actuated valves and level switches, the pictured HSM-405SC-25 recirculates into a 400-gallon jacketed tank and is controlled from a 15” industrial PC with Windows.

Schenck Process has developed a method to "enhance" the operation of a dilute phase convey system by minimizing the speed of the blower under all operating conditions. EDIP translates the performance of the equipment being used into a tangible conveying velocity set by the user.

  • Selection Criteria for Ribbon, Vertical, or Tumble Blenders

    Among solid-solid blending systems, the three most common types are the horizontal ribbon blender, the cone screw vertical blender and the tumble blender. Aside from level of shear or ‘gentleness’, other factors help determine which type of blender will work most efficiently in a certain application. Following are some things to consider when choosing your blender.
