expect safe, high-quality food. Most retail chains require their suppliers to
have relevant certification. One key factor is the detection and removal of
metals and contaminants and preventing quality issues – the very tasks our
systems are designed to handle.
Food meant for human consumption has to be pure and cannot pose a health
risk. This is one of the key requirements in the food industry. At the same
time, contamination resulting from impurities during production can never be
entirely ruled out. Machine wear and personal items belonging to staff are just
two possible sources.
Machine protection: Pieces of metal in particular can damage processing machines. Contaminant detectors prevent machine breakdowns, production downtime and costly repairs.Greater sales: Consumers are less and less willing to accept blemishes in a product’s appearance and the unintended addition or presence of other foods. As a result, separating out those products affected in this way can increase sales.
Here at Sesotec, our specialty is contaminant detection and sorting on an industrial scale. We have been pursuing this focus for decades. In terms of versatility and quality, there is little that can compare to our range of products. We supply systems from a single source for all process steps, product types and kinds of conveyance, as well as for all critical checkpoints in the production process.Using various detection technologies, our metal detection systems, X-ray scanners and food-sorting systems can detect and automatically remove contaminants and products that do not meet strict quality standards. What is more, they do so efficiently and reliably. The machines are easy to operate and meet all requirements concerning traceability and the complete documentation of quality-related data.

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.
Lecture by Sesotec X-ray Product Manager Uli Hurzlmeier concerning the "Food Safety" IFFA focus.
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
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.
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.
The manual sorting of seeds is time-consuming and causes very high personnel costs. Read in our Case Study how the Quasar contributes to cost savings.
