Metal Contamination White Papers & Articles

  1. Avoiding Cross-Contamination Risks For Food Safety

    According to the World Health Organization (WHO), an estimated 600 million people — almost 10 per cent of the global population — fall ill after eating contaminated food. To combat the issues of contamination, many food manufacturers, who have previously relied upon manual sorting and inspection, are embracing novel technologies and sorting systems.

  2. Optimizing Yield For Food Manufacturers

    In order to meet the global population’s growing demand for food, research by the Food and Agricultural Organization of the United Nations (FAO) predicts that the worldwide food manufacturing and processing industries need to increase their total output by 70 percent by 2050. This article will explain several ways to enhance the efficiency of food production.

  3. Time To Sort Out Food Waste

    Almost a third of all food produced worldwide is never eaten, leading to 1.3 billion tons of food waste each year. This includes around 45 per cent of all fruit and vegetables and 20 per cent of meat. Just one quarter of this wasted food could feed the 795 million chronically hungry people around the world. By Steve Raskin, Sales director EMEA at TOMRA Sorting Food

  4. Food Safety First Is The Order Of The Day

    Data revealing aflatoxins to be the biggest cause of foodrelated recalls demonstrates the important role effective sorting and quality analysis systems can play in boosting food safety on the production line. By Ashley Hunter, Senior Vice President & Head of TOMRA Sorting Food

  5. Sustainability In The Food Processing Industry: Your Guide To Improve Energy Efficiencies

    As environmental scrutiny of global industries continues to grow, governments are seeking to impose energy efficiency targets on companies in order to comply with new directives. By Dr. Doug Reid, Engineering Manager at TOMRA Sorting Food

  6. Automation Essential To Sustainable Success

    Continued advances in automation and robotics are making the global food manufacturing and processing industries safer, more efficient and able to deliver higher profits. By Steven Van Geel, Sales Director China at TOMRA Sorting Food

  7. What Does The Future Hold For Food Safety Regulations?

    The FDA recently requested a higher budget for the implementation of its food safety regulations that significantly impact the food industry. With new regulations, companies should stay on top of the latest changes that could impact production and profits. This article will explore some of the impacts of the evolving regulatory landscape on the food industry.

  8. How To Detect 87 Percent Smaller Wire Contaminants In Manufacturing

    Metal detector sensitivity performance is usually expressed in terms of the diameter of a test sphere made from a specific type of metal, such as ferrous, non-ferrous, aluminum or stainless steel.

  9. Improving Sensitivities For The Most Challenging Metal Detection Applications

    Conductive or dense food products have forced companies to accept unacceptable detection thresholds. This White Paper explains enhanced platforms, how they work, and why they were developed.

  10. Metal Detection Systems: Still A Safe Bet For Food Manufacturers

    Product inspection systems are most successful when they are designed with many support methods and principles. For years, Metal Detection Systems have provided safeguards against physical contamination. These systems grow more sophisticated each year, and, consequently, their ability to detect smaller metal contaminants becomes more refined.
