More detailed information

Why is product inspection important with regard to spices and seasonings?

The production of spices and seasonings is a complex process. The aim is to produce and deliver pure products. Product inspection systems increase product safety and ensure top quality.

 

What purpose do Sesotec product inspection systems serve?

The inspection of unpackaged spices and seasonings, as well as packaged products such as salt and sugar, target impurities and contaminants. Ranging from contaminant detection using magnets to inductive metal detectors and X-ray technology, many different methods are available to inspect spices and seasonings for a variety of impurities and contaminants.

 

Benefits of Sesotec contaminant detection systems in the food industry:

  • Precise detection and removal of contaminants
  • Consistent performance (in contrast to sorting by hand)
  • User-friendly operation (plug-and-play principle)
  • Reliable functionality
  • Designed for high capacity levels
  • Low total cost of ownership (energy consumption, wear parts)
  • Rapid amortization
  • Optimization of downstream processes (machine protection)

What kinds of contamination and quality issues could occur?

Potential contamination and quality issues with regard to spices and seasonings can occur during processing as well as due to staff carelessness. Common examples include stones, metal and glass.

 

What spices and seasonings are inspected?

Our contaminant detection systems are used for a wide range of applications. Here are some examples that can be inspected:

  • Salt
  • Sugar
  • Spice mixes
  • Baking agents
  • Yeast
  • Pudding powder
  • Potato flour
  • Read-to-drink tea/coffee
  • Much more

 

What kinds of technology are used in Sesotec systems?

Sesotec possesses sound expertise across a wide range of technology. Thanks to our carefully considered combination of sensors and software, we achieve outstanding results when it comes to product inspection. The systems function using the following sensors, among others:

  • Inductive metal detectors
  • X-ray technology (e.g. analysis of thickness, chemical composition, etc.)

 

How do producers of spices and seasonings use our machines?

 Sesotec product inspection systems are normally used for inspecting incoming goods, during processing and in the outgoing goods area and ensure e.g. as part of the final step that only flawless goods are delivered to the customer.

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.

Top x-ray technologie for spices with top quality

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.
