Detecting contaminants in meat and sausage production

Quality assurance and specifically contaminant detection are key concerns at meat-processing plants. Contaminants can damage machinery or even pose a risk to consumer health and may trigger recalls. We have the right machines and the necessary experience to minimise these risks.

For decades, Sesotec has specialised in systems for industrial contaminant detection. We provide a complete range of leading technology that includes metal detectors and X-ray systems for the reliable detection and removal of contaminants. Our machines and systems of course comply with the special hygienic requirements of the food industry and meet the prescribed standards for audits.

More detailed information

Why is contaminant detection important in the manufacture of meat and sausage products?

From performing HACCP analyses to upholding IFS and BRC standards and meeting the specifications of major retail chains, meat-processing companies must juggle a number of tasks in order to remain competitive: they need to obtain certifications, they must undergo audits, they are subject to legal requirements and they have to tailor their activities in line with detailed customer demands. Such companies face the constant danger of metal contaminants in particular, as nearly all machines and safety equipment are made of metal parts. The risk here is great. Contaminants can bring production plants to a standstill, harm consumers, trigger product recalls and seriously damage a company’s reputation.  


What kinds of contaminants could appear in meat and sausage products?

Contaminated raw materials, machine wear and objects belonging to machine operators are possible sources of contaminants. Examples include:

  • Syringes from the fattening process that have broken off
  • Bones
  • Knives or blades that have broken off
  • Metal slough in conveyor lines
  • Machine breakage
  • Safety equipment parts
  • Sausage clips
  • Plastics
  • Glass splinters
X-ray inspection in the meat industry


Where do meat-processing plants use our machines?

We support you in all steps of the process, from right after cutting to meat processing and final inspection of the packaged products. Together with you, we find the solution that is best suited to your specific need. Our systems detect and remove contaminants in such things as:

  • Raw meat in its final packaging
  • Sausage meat before the stuffer
  • Cold cuts after packaging
  • Minced meat
  • Convenience food

White Paper

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.
