Why contaminant detection in the food processing  is important

While the major sources of contamination often vary by product, raw materials and equipment used Food Processors must evaluate their systems and decide where there is the most potential for physical contamination and implement the appropriate detection technologies.
Operators must also consider the amount of space available to install a system in facilities and on production lines.

What kinds of contaminants could appear?

Examples include the following:

  • metal contamination in individual ingredients
  • flecks of metal from machinery used in process
  • wire from a sieve net filtering liquid 
  • Metal slough in conveyor lines
  • Machine breakage as with shredders

Where and how do food processors use our systems?

Eriez® Xtreme® Metal Detector Conveyor Systems are now more versatile than ever with the availability of optional air-blast or pusher-arm rejects as well as a great variety of other options, including lockboxes, reject confirmation, stainless steel motor/reducers, upgraded guarding and emergency stop systems.

Most food processing operations include a broad range of  wet and dry ingredients.  It may be advisable to include detection systems in the process at point of entry to protect contamination of your process.  We have the right solution for any situation and would be happy to advise you.
