Metal Detection in Food Industry
Even though metal is not the most commonly encountered foreign object in food production, it is still the most controlled and inspected contaminant, due to metal detectors which have set the detection standards since the beginning of food inspection.
It is understandable that we still refer to these metal detection standards in the food industry, but it is also important to knowledge that the technology will be outdated in the coming years when X-ray solutions offer so much more value for food producers.
More Accurate Detection of Metal with X-Ray System
Did you know that MEKI X-ray system can detect much smaller metal contaminants than a simple metal detector can? Based on the X-ray imaging technology, we are able to guarantee the most accurate metal detection rates for contaminants such as stainless steel, ferrous and non-ferrous metals.
Even the orientation of steel wires used in e.g. sieve net or external environment variations (such as surrounding production equipment or possible salt content of the products) do not affect the accuracy of metal detection in food when using the MEKI X-ray inspection system.
Detecting Metal Inside Metallized Packaging
Sometimes food producers want to increase the shelf-life of their products by using metallized packaging material. X-ray inspection system enables this change without any additional effort.
The MEKI X-ray inspection system makes it possible for food producers to inspect products packaged in metallized materials, such as aluminum, and detects the metal contaminants without a problem. Metal detection in food industry has never been this efficient and reliable!
