  • What Food Processors Should Know: Metal Detection Vs. X-ray Inspection

    Consumer safety has always been a primary concern for food processors. HACCP (Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Points) has been a methology recommended by the FDA since the 1950s and food producers have always been conscious of their brand’s protection. The recent enactment of the U.S. Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA) has turned the intensity up even higher.

METAL CONTAMINATION PRODUCTS

This high-quality, high-performance magnet assures the efficient separation of the smallest ferrous and magnetised stainless steel contaminants.

The LIQUISCAN VF+ is a metal separator for filling applications. When metal is detected, the separator valve automatically redirects the contaminated product into a special container. LIQUISCAN VF+ metal separators are supplied mounted on a mobile, height-adjustable stand. The low center of gravity and balanced design ensures good stability, especially when the system is moved. 

Used to remove fine metal contaminants in dilute-phase pneumatic conveying, MPI’s Pneumatic Line Magnet Hi-G boasts a sanitary design in all product contact areas, 100% stainless steel product areas, and powerful Rare Earth magnet material.

Metal detector for installation in pipeline systems, e.g. for free-fall applications, pneumatic conveyor lines, material columns that are slowly moving down, or pump feed lines. The metal detector is used for the inspection of bulk materials, fibres, or liquid/pasty products.

MPI’s Round Spout Drawer Magnets (RSDM series) remove small to medium sized ferrous tramp metal contaminants from dry, granular, free- flowing product streams in round gravity-fed vertical chutes and spouts.

The magnetic collection of fine particles requires a high-intensity, high-gradient magnetic field. An electromagnetic matrix-type separator, referred to as a magnet filter, has proven to be the most effective method of separation...

Determining your facility’s risks is the first step to preventing product contamination. However, once risk is determined, an assessment should be completed to determine the areas where the most foreign materials can enter a food manufacturing or processing line. This podcast offers insight to limiting your food making facility’s risk factors of foreign body contamination.

During an interview at PACK EXPO 2014, Rob Tiernay, Director of Sales for North America at Anritsu Industrial Solutions USA, discussed with Todd and Todd what to consider when choosing technology for contamination detection. 

In an interview at 2014’s PACK EXPO, Viggo Nielsen, General Manager at Mettler Toledo Safeline, took time to speak with Todd Schnick and Todd Youngblood about the effects FSMA regulations are having on food packaging and inspection. 

In an interview at PACK EXPO, Keith Rhodes, President, Magnetic Products, Inc., discusses the impact of the 2011 Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA) and what manufacturers can do to improve food quality and safety.
