Ensuring the quality of staple foodstuffs and seasonings

In the production of staple foodstuffs and seasonings, our automatic sorting and product inspection systems consistently ensure superb quality and leave your customers feeling satisfied.

For decades, Sesotec has specialised in systems for industrial contaminant detection and materials sorting. Our technologically perfected range of optical food-sorting systems, metal detectors and X-ray scanners ensure consistently high quality. The machines reliably detect − and will automatically remove, if desired − contaminants and products that do not meet strict quality standards. 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 product inspection and sorting important with regard to staple foodstuffs and seasonings?

The production of staple foodstuffs and seasonings is a complex process. The aim is to produce and deliver pure products. Sorting systems and product inspection systems increase product safety and ensure top quality.

 

What purpose do Sesotec product inspection and sorting systems serve?

The sorting and inspection of unpackaged staple foodstuffs and seasonings, as well as packaged products such as salt and sugar, target impurities and contaminants. Ranging from optical sorting to contaminant detection using magnets, inductive metal detectors and X-ray technology, many different methods are available to inspect and sort staple foodstuffs and seasonings for a variety of impurities and contaminants.

 

Benefits of Sesotec sorting systems and contaminant detection in the food industry:

  • Precise detection and removal of contaminants
  • Precise removal of impurities
  • Constant performance (in contrast to sorting by hand)
  • User-friendly operation (plug-and-play principle)
  • Reliable functionality
  • Designed for high capacity levels
  • Low total cost of ownership (energy consumption, wear parts)
  • Rapid amortisation
  • Optimisation of downstream processes (machine protection)

What kinds of contamination and quality issues could occur?

Potential contamination and quality issues with regard to staple foodstuffs and seasonings can occur during processing as well as from staff carelessness. Common examples include stones, metal and glass, although our machines can detect and remove many other contaminants.

 

What staple foodstuffs and seasonings are inspected and sorted?

Our contaminant detection and sorting systems are used for a wide range of applications. Here are some examples that, depending on the nature of the product, can be inspected or sorted:

  • Salt
  • Sugar
  • Spice mixes
  • Baking agents
  • Yeast
  • Pudding powder
  • Potato flour
  • Read-to-drink tea/coffee
  • Much more

 

What kinds of technology are used in Sesotec systems?

Sesotec possesses sound expertise across a wide range of technology. Thanks to the carefully considered combination of sensors and software, we achieve outstanding results when it comes to product inspection and sorting. The systems function with the following sensors, among others:

  • X-ray technology (e.g. analysis of thickness, chemical composition, etc.)
  • Latest camera technology (colour analysis similar to the human eye)
  • Shape recognition (analysis of geometrical shapes)
  • InGaAs technology (foreign material detection of stones, for example)


    How do producers of basic foodstuffs and seasonings use our machines?

    Optical sorting systems are mainly used in the production process to sort unpackaged products based on a range of criteria. As a result, our sorting systems ensure a high level of quality throughout the entire process and can be adjusted precisely to your needs.

    In contrast, the Sesotec product inspection systems are normally used in the outgoing goods area and ensure as part of the final step that only flawless goods are delivered to the customer.
