Quality assurance for cheese and dairy products

Cheesemakers 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.

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 in liquid, cream and solid products. These efforts ensure that prescribed standards are met, and they reliably prevent customer complaints, product recalls and a tarnished reputation.

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 for cheesemakers and dairies?

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.

What kinds of contaminants could appear in cheese and dairy products?

  • Metal slough
  • Glass splinters
  • Stones

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.

X-ray inspection system for the dairy industry


Where do cheesemakers and dairies use our machines?

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.  

Specific examples include the examination of the following:

  • Curd before storage
  • Liquid products before moulding
  • Mature cheese before cutting or grating
  • Butter before pressing
  • Yoghurt, milk, cream, quark, cream cheese, etc. after packaging

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.
