Physical Contamination Detection in Food Production


As the global demand for food rises, so do the responsibilities of the food industry. Safe and efficient food production practices are crucial to the health of both humanity and the planet.

Our intelligent technologies and services help food industry companies profitably manufacture safe products and reduce food waste.

Compliant. Sustainable. Efficient.

Consumers expect safe, high-quality food. Most retail chains require their suppliers to have relevant certifications. One key factor is the detection and removal of metals, contaminants and quality issues – the very tasks our systems are designed to handle.

Food meant for human consumption has to be pure and cannot pose a health risk. This is one of the key requirements in the food industry. At the same time, contamination resulting from impurities during production can never be entirely ruled out. Machine wear and personal items belonging to staff are just two possible sources.


What is the point of product inspection?

Certification: Machine-based product inspection has become an integral part of the efforts by responsible food producers to guarantee that the goods they supply do not have any contaminants. Such inspections are part and parcel of an HACCP set-up or a requirement for successful certification under IFS or BRC, for example. In addition, they protect the manufacturer and the brand from claims for damages, recalls and a tarnished reputation.  

Machine protection: Pieces of metal in particular can damage processing machines. Contaminant detectors prevent machine breakdown, production downtime and costly repairs. 

Greater sales: Consumers are less and less willing to accept blemishes in a product’s appearance and the unintended addition or presence of other foods. As a result, separating out those products affected in this way can increase sales.

What can we do for you?

Here at Sesotec, our speciality is contaminant detection on an industrial scale. We have been pursuing this focus for decades. In terms of versatility and quality, there is little that can compare to our range of products. We supply systems from a single stop for all process steps, product types and kinds of conveyance, as well as for all critical checkpoints in the production process.

Using various detection technologies, our metal detection systems and X-ray scanners can detect and automatically remove contaminants and products that do not meet strict quality standards. What is more, they do so efficiently and reliably. The machines are easy to operate and meet all requirements concerning traceability and the complete documentation of quality-related data.

Products with high or fluctuating levels of product effect (due, for example, to metallized packaging or storage in brine or water) can be more reliably inspected with THiNK. False rejects, and the food waste they cause, are reduced. Learn more about THiNK.

How artificial intelligence contributes to sustainable and profitable food processing

Despite the breadth of technology available for foreign object detection, certain types of food products remain difficult to inspect via conventional methods. The reason for this is that some foods have high levels of product effect, which can interfere with metal detection. This white paper examines the phenomenon of product effect, the problems it can cause, and why artificial intelligence offers an innovative and promising solution.

X-ray inspection systems ensure top quality in MANNER products

Founded in 1890, the Josef Manner & Comp. AG is the number one specialist for wafers, dragées, and marshmallow products in Austria. As a leading manufacturer of product inspection technology, Sesotec supplied Manner with three RAYCON x-ray systems to help them renew their IFS certification in 2019. The solution was a success: their IFS certificate was renewed and both production sites continue to operate at the highest level of accreditation.

Salami loidl

Case Studies

Metal detection with AI ensures the perfect salami

Founded in the 1960s, H. Loidl Sausage Producers and Distributors GmbH & Co KG attributes their rapid growth to the high quality of their salami products. Once ripe, some Loidl salami products are packaged in slices. This requires
removing the casing and the aluminum clips by hand. In some cases, residue from the aluminum clips remains on the salami. The standard metal detection solutions Loidl had used up un til that point were not sensitive enough to reliably detect the metal contaminants. So Loidl turned to Sesotec in search of a solution for detecting and automatically rejecting metal contaminants from salami sticks.
