In the production of spices and seasonings, our automatic sorting and product inspection systems consistently ensure superb quality and leave your customers feeling satisfied.
For decades, Sesotec has specialized in systems for industrial contaminant detection and materials sorting. Our technologically perfected range of optical food-sorting systems, metal detectors and X-ray scanners ensure consistently high quality. The machines reliably detect − and will automatically remove, if desired − contaminants and products that do not meet strict quality standards. Our machines and systems of course comply with the special hygienic requirements of the food industry and meet the prescribed standards for audits.
Why is product inspection and sorting 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. Sorting systems and product inspection systems increase product safety and ensure top quality.
What purpose do Sesotec product inspection and sorting systems serve?
The sorting and inspection of unpackaged spices and seasonings, as well as packaged products such as salt and sugar, target impurities and contaminants. Ranging from optical sorting to contaminant detection using magnets, inductive metal detectors and X-ray technology, many different methods are available to inspect and sort spices and seasonings for a variety of impurities and contaminants.
Benefits of Sesotec sorting systems and contaminant detection in the food industry:
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, although our machines can detect and remove many other contaminants.
What spices and seasonings are inspected and sorted?

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 and sorting.
The systems function using the following sensors, among others:
How do producers of spices and seasonings use our machines?
Optical sorting systems are mainly used in the production process to sort unpackaged products based on a range of criteria. As a result, our sorting systems ensure a high level of quality throughout the entire process and can be adjusted precisely to your needs.
In contrast, Sesotec product inspection systems are normally used in the outgoing goods area and ensure as part of the final step that only flawless goods are delivered to the customer.
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.

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.
