Detecting contaminants in bread and baked goods

Baking lines are exposed processes, which is why contamination can occur easily. In addition, the raw materials themselves often contain contaminants. Sesotec metal detectors and X-ray scanners reliably identify and remove such contaminants.

For decades, Sesotec has specialized in systems for industrial contaminant detection. We provide a technologically perfected range of metal detectors and X-ray systems for the reliable detection and automatic removal of contaminants in the production of bread and baked goods. These efforts help prevent customer complaints, product recalls and damage to machinery. Our machines and systems of course comply with the special hygiene requirements of the food industry and meet the prescribed standards for audits.

More detailed information  

Why is contaminant detection important in the production of bread and baked goods?

A baking line is relatively vulnerable to contaminants, whether through careless employees, wear from the processing machines made largely out of stainless steel or from raw materials that are contaminated themselves. Any of these concerns can result in hygiene issues or even pose a risk to consumer health. As a result, manufacturers are under pressure. Lawmakers, retailers and customers compel them to minimize the risks. BRC and IFC certification, HACCP analyses and audits are all essential. Failure to obtain certification or perform analyses and audits can jeopardize a company’s image and profitability.

 

What kinds of contaminants could appear in bread and baked goods?

Several examples include:

  • Objects belonging to machine operators
  • Metal abrasion from conveyor pipes or processing machines
  • Machine breakage
  • Small stones
  • Plastic parts
  • Glass fragments

What products in the bread and baked-goods industry are subject to inspection?

Our systems are used to inspect such items such as:

  • Dough and pieces of dough
  • Deep-frozen products
  • Fresh/exposed products, such as bread or rolls
  • Semi-finished products
  • Ready-made products such as pastry cases, pizza dough, doughnuts, bread for toasting, rusk, frozen cakes, snacks, gingerbread

 

Where and how do bread and baked-goods manufacturers use our machines?

Our metal detectors and X-ray systems are used for tasks such as the following:

  • Dough processing
  • After (pre-)baking but before further processing with cutters, calenders, rollers, extruder presses, etc. (to protect the machinery)
  • After the final baking process
  • For final inspection after packaging

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