Detecting contaminants in noodles and other pasta products

Producing pasta always comes with the risk of contaminants getting into the products, which can result from contaminated raw materials, careless staff and machine wear. As a result, more and more manufacturers are using contaminant detectors. Our metal detection systems and X-ray scanners detect and remove contaminants, and they do so reliably, cost-efficiently and entirely automatically.

For decades, Sesotec has specialised in systems for industrial contaminant detection. We provide a technologically perfected range of metal detectors and X-ray scanners. They reliably detect − and will automatically remove, if desired − contaminants in every area of the food industry. These efforts help prevent customer complaints, product recalls and damage to machinery.

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 pasta production?

Lawmakers, retailers and customers exert great pressure on manufacturers to ensure that food is safe and contaminant-free. BRC and IFC certification, plans for hazard analysis and critical control points, and audits are all vital to guaranteeing a positive image and sales opportunities for companies. Contaminant detection plays a key role here, because there is always a risk that contaminants will end up in products during the production process. This may occur through careless employees, wear from the processing machines made largely out of stainless steel or from raw materials that are contaminated themselves.

What kinds of contaminants could appear?

Several examples include:

  • Objects belonging to machine operators
  • Metal slough in conveyor pipes
  • Metal slough from processing machines
  • Machine breakage
  • Small stones (found in raw materials)
  • Plastics
  • Glass splinters


Where and how do pasta manufacturers use our machines?

Our metal detectors and X-ray systems are used for the following tasks, among others:

  • During the inspection of incoming goods to check raw materials such as flour and semolina
  • To inspect the dough during processing, for example before calenders, dough presses and punch machines
  • In the outgoing goods area for the final quality check after packaging


As you can see, we support you in all steps of the process. We would be happy to advise you. Together with you, we will find the solution that is best suited to your specific need.

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.
