Almi, an Austrian company headquartered near Linz, and one of the
leading manufacturers of quality flavourings and additives for sausage,
meat, ham and fish products, uses Sesotec “Hygienic Design” metal
detectors throughout their entire production process.
Separately purchased recyclate often contains various different polymers as well as metal contaminants such as aluminum, brass, and stainless steel. Learn in our Case Study how Sitraplas has solved this problem.
The „Alte Gewürzamt“ produces 120 tons spices and spice mixtures per year on 4.000 square meters. The HACCP analysis revealed an increased risk of contamination with metal, stones and glass. An inspection at the outgoing goods was therefore required to meet the quality standards.
SITRAPLAS GmbH is a producer of high-performance engineering plastic compounds. Unplanned downtime is a nightmare for every company, but especially for continuous production facilities. When metal separators are networked with plastic processing machines, the flow of information between machines can be monitored.
Pneumatic conveying is common within the milling industry to move large volumes of products. This firm was looking for a metal detection solution to provide enhancements to their food safety initiatives (GFSI) within the challenge of pneumatically conveying the finished product to bulk carriers.
To avoid any metal in the powder, CIPSA wanted to inspect the PVC compounds before they enter the pelletizer. This was to protect the extruder screw from damage and avoid expensive production stops.
Reiling is prepared to fulfill this need, offering an entire range of services from collection (full service or DIY), to processing (converting bottles to flakes), to creating carefully controlled end products. For those who will eventually buy the flakes, color and material purity are of central importance, as high-quality starting materials are needed to manufacture new products.
While processing virgin glass-filled material together with regrind, the same problem was coming up up over and over again. Metal inclusions were clogging the hot runners of the molds, leading to as many as 10 emergency stops and 2 to 3 costly repairs per month. After careful consideration of the production environment and manufacturing specifications, the metal detection system PROTECTOR 40 was installed along with the magnet system SAFEMAG at the feed hopper of the injection molding machine.
The Backwelt Pilz produces pre-baked and pre-cooked deep-frozen baked goods, for the food retail trade, petrol station shops and system gastronomy. In order to ensure that bread and rolls are absolutely free of foreign bodies, the Backwelt Pilz decided, in addition to the existing metal detectors, also to install RAYCON D+ X-ray inspection equipment for packaged products.
When this customer looked for a metal detector, he expected this system to remove metallic contaminations from dry spices inspected in pneumatic pipes without causing any interruptions of the production process.
The quality requirements of the chemical industry are particularly high. Metal detectors play an essential role in the refinement of solids to ensure a consistently high product quality and safety. At the same time, the customers expect quick setup times to achieve high flexibility and efficiency.
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.
Founded in the 1960s, H. Loidl Sausage Producers and Distributors GmbH & Co KG attributes their rapid growth to the high quality of their salami products. Once ripe, some Loidl salami products are packaged in slices. This requires
removing the casing and the aluminum clips by hand. In some cases, residue from the aluminum clips remains on the salami. The standard metal detection solutions Loidl had used up un til that point were not sensitive enough to reliably detect the metal contaminants. So Loidl turned to Sesotec in search of a solution for detecting and automatically rejecting metal contaminants from salami sticks.
For more than 335 years and 14 generations, Rubinmühle has been managed by the Rubin family.
Customers in Europe and beyond benefit from their reliable and flexible supply of innovative, high-quality grain products.
As quality requirements have become
more stringent over time,
commenced a search for a solution that could
inspect grain flakes with the best possible detection rates.
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.
FF Frischfleisch AG was searching for a way to fully trace 100% of products subject to complaints. Such a solution would require the systematic documentation of production.
In cooperation with Kundert, the Swiss sales partner, Sesotec was able to develop a solution to this challenge onsite.
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.
Foreign materials posed the biggest challenge to the new plant.
Contaminants such as ceramics, stones, porcelain (CSP), metals, paper,
and plastics comprise as much as 15 to 20% of the total weight of all
collected glass waste. To overcome this challenge, KRS supplied a
sorting system that meets these requirements.
