  • 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.

  • Ensuring Food Safety Through The Prevention Of Physical Contamination

    Incidents of physical contaminants in food can have a detrimental impact on brand reputation. This white paper explains different types of physical contamination in food and how to prevent them.

  • Equipment Safety For Product Inspection Equipment

    This paper is intended as a general guide on equipment safety, for users and suppliers of product inspection equipment. It should be thought of as a framework for discussion on the topic, assisting both users and suppliers in meeting their shared responsibility for equipment safety.

  • Metal Detection, X-Ray Inspection Or Both?

    This white paper will help food and pharmaceutical manufacturers decide on which inspection technology to invest in to ensure the quality and safety of their products. Metal Detection, X-ray Inspection or Both summarises the pros and cons of each technology and guides you through the decision making process.

  • 5 Considerations When Changing From Metal Detection To X-Ray Inspection

    Surprise objects in food, and the anger and fear they create, can turn into viral news faster than you can say “recall!” Here are five considerations when upgrading from metal detection to X-Ray inspection.

METAL CONTAMINATION PRODUCTS

MPI's Plate Magenets are available with standard magnets and rare earth magnets in multiple variations.

The Xtreme® rectangular aperture industrial metal detector raises the bar in terms of superior sensitivity, ease of use and reliability.

Cassel's METAL SHARK® Conveyor Tunnel Metal Detector, typically integrated onto a conveyor belt, readily adjusts settings to ensure extreme equipment sensitivity, stability and reliability. Cassel Metal Detectors offer high quality Direct Digital Synthesizer (DDS) technology for use in bulk materials or packaged products on a powered belt conveyor process line.

The VARICON metal detection system detects all metal contaminants (steel, special steel, aluminium, ...) – also metal contaminants that are enclosed in the product. It is used for the inspection of packed and unpacked piece goods. The VARICON-D series is designed for dry-area applications, the VARICON-W series for wet-area applications.

As customers face increasingly stringent product safety standards, MPE has sought to provide a new and better way to prevent both ferrous and nonferrous metals from contaminating final product. The result: MPE’s Pro-Tector efficiently combines the simplicity of a magnetic separator with the reliability of a metal detector in one compact unit. This innovative new system assures the quick, easy removal of metals from the product stream, while its size accommodates the tight spaces commonly found in production facilities.

This metal detector is typically used with fluid and paste-like products, and is appropriate for the food industry to ensure food safety. Boasting a sturdy stainless steel sensor and control unit housing, maintenance-free design and high quality construction, users benefit from reliable metal detector operation in even the most challenging industrial environments.

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.
