and dairies can tell you a thing or two about the strict quality-assurance
requirements that supermarkets place on suppliers. Product safety and consumer
protection are top priorities. Our systems detect and remove contaminants. On
request, they can also take over checking fill levels and completeness.
Just like all food manufacturers, producers of cheese and other milk products must perform HACCP analyses, as required by legal regulations and supermarket specifications. Contaminant detectors are an essential part of a successful HACCP set-up. Brand image also depends on the purity and quality of products; after all, contaminants that go undetected could potentially injure consumers.
These are just a few examples of typical contaminants in milk products. Sources of contamination can include machine and pipe wear, contaminated raw materials and additives (e.g. fruit mixtures), and objects belonging to machine operators.
One key task for which metal detectors and X-ray scanners are used for dairy products is final inspection of the packaged products before they are shipped out. Apart from contaminant detection, our X-ray systems can also be used to check fill levels (e.g. for yoghurt or yoghurt drinks) and completeness. With regard to cheese production, contaminant detection also helps to prevent damage to processing machines.
As you can see, we support you in all steps of the process. Together with you, we will find the solution that is best suited to your specific need.
