From exposed processes and wooden moulds to raw materials with a high risk of contamination, there is a wide variety of sources for contaminants in the confectionery industry. Our metal detectors and X-ray scanners reliably detect and remove contaminants before they can damage machines or endanger consumer safety. In addition, they are able to check the fill level, completeness, weight and integrity of a product.
Chocolate and sweets are exposed to their surroundings when poured into moulds. Raw materials such as nuts and grains often contain contaminants. In many cases, manufacturers use wooden moulds, parts of which can break off. In addition, machines made of stainless steel are subject to wear and can be a source of contamination. Careless staff pose yet another concern. Depending on what type of contamination occurs, the problem may be “only” hygienic. In the worst case, however, contaminants could endanger consumer health. Lawmakers, retailers and customers compel manufacturers to minimise these risks. Certification under BRC and IFC for example, HACCP analyses and audits are all essential. Failure to obtain certification or perform analyses and audits can jeopardise a company’s image and profitability.
Several examples include:
Our systems are used to inspect such things as the following:
Our metal detectors and X-ray systems are used to inspect incoming goods, to perform a final quality check for outgoing goods, and in various stages of production, such as during the mixture of raw materials, the conveyance of liquid products, moulding (before injection), and before or after packaging.
In addition to contaminant detection, it is possible to check the fill level, completeness and weight of packaged goods using X-ray scanners. Even broken products can be detected and separated out.
As you can see, we support you in all steps of the process – with proven technology that is both effective and economical. We would be happy to advise you. Together with you, we will find the solution that is best suited to your specific need.
Our White Paper informs you about the criteria that
need to be considered when you choose machines and systems for the
protection against contaminants and for metal detection.
Our White Paper describes the development of technologies in
contaminant detection in the food industry.
In this White Paper we show you the key benefits and
diverse application possibilities of x-ray technology and how these systems help
you to ensure your product quality.
With our booklet
about X-ray inspection of food products we give you an overview of x-ray
inspection in general, important food standards and Sesotec's
In our e-book we show you, amongst others, what challenges the development of the world's population and especially food safety pose for manufacturers and processors and how they can still be mastered.
Whitepaper outlines the legal requirements for food safety in some
of the world’s major markets and compares them with the most common standards.
This information is meant to help food industry companies choose the best
standard for their business.
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.
This guide is intended to help quality managers and production managers in food processing companies to generate a common understanding regarding validation and verification processes in their own organization and to implement appropriate procedures.
As the world population grows and global living standards rise, the food industry is confronted with a number of challenges and opportunities, especially in the area of Food Safety. This e-book is meant to offer a comprehensive overview of the varying and influential factors shaping the future of food manufacturing and processing.
In the first part of our e-book article series "Food Safety", we looked at the factors that play an important role in the food industry from different perspectives. In the second part of the article series, we will discuss what support is available for the effective implementation of various food safety measures.
Founded in 1890, the Josef Manner & Comp. AG is the number one specialist for wafers, dragées,
and marshmallow products
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.
Among the favorite products of Tunacor Fishing Ltd are their fish sausages, which are especially celebrated in Spain. However, every now and then they would receive complaints from customers about bits of metal in the sausages.
Many customers face the problem of lacking the knowledge of which setting parameters can cause a significant change in product safety and process relevance. A validation process can aid these customers to overcome this challenge and take a successful path towards compliance with food safety standards. Such as process can also be used as a service.
Schwaben processes 410 million kilograms of milk and whey each year.
detection must be installed at various checkpoints to control for the quality
of dairy products. Butter and rice pudding, for example, are transported
through pipelines prior to filling. In
order to ensure these packaged products are free of metallic contaminants,
metal detectors are used.
As a new major company with the highest quality requirements, CREMER needs a powerful and reliable metal detection system to ensure that its production facilities meet international standards and reliably produce safe products. All in the interest of food safety.
