Product inspections for confectionery

From exposed processes and wooden molds 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.

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 confectionery production. These efforts help to 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.

Why is contaminant detection important in confectionery production?

Chocolate and sweets are exposed to their surroundings when poured into molds. Raw materials such as nuts and grains often contain contaminants. In many cases, manufacturers use wooden molds, 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 minimize 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 jeopardize a company’s image and profitability.

 

What kinds of contaminants could appear in confectionery?

Several examples include:

  • Objects belonging to machine operators
  • Metal abrasion in conveyor pipes
  • Metal abrasion from processing machines
  • Machine breakage
  • Small stones in raw materials, e.g. in grains
  • Plastics
  • Glass fragments
  • Wood
  • Organic contaminants


What products in the confectionery industry can be inspected?

Our systems are used to inspect items such as the following:

  • Gummy bears
  • Sweets
  • Chocolate
  • Bars
  • Ice cream
  • Pralines
  • Nut-based nougat spreads
  • Puffs

 

Where and how do confectionery manufacturers use our machines?

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, molding (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 we will find the solution that is best suited to your specific need.
