White Paper: Improving Food Safety Inspection of Pumped Products
A wide range of processed food passes through pipeline inspection systems, such as metal detection and x-ray inspection, every day, from meat and poultry to dairy products, and fruit and vegetables to confectionery.
However, traditionally, pumped production lines have presented a challenge to manufacturers when it comes to product inspection due to air pockets causing false rejects, speed verification and cleaning since the machinery is in direct contact with the product.
A 16 page industry white paper entitled Improving Food Safety Inspection of Pumped Products explains how metal detection and x-ray pipeline inspection systems work, and points out their differing capabilities, before exploring factors that affect the sensitivity of product inspection equipment on pumped food lines.
With plenty of examples of pumped food applications, the document goes on to discuss key factors that should be considered before installing an inspection system on a pumped food line, such as air pockets and speed variations, to help manufacturers select the best contamination detection solution for their specific application.
Metal Detection, X-ray Inspection or Both
The paper reveals that for many pumped products, only metal detection or x-ray inspection will be suitable but that, in some cases, either technology could be used. It also explains that occasions exist where it may be necessary to install metal detection and x-ray inspection equipment at different critical control points (CCPs) on the same production line.
