Detectronic has expanded its product portfolio with three new and innovative machines. At Gulfood Manufacturing they presented the DeteX 30, the Speed Check Weigher and their new Metal Detector that besides being cost effective and able to optimize production, also guarantees a better product for the end user. One of the new machines that Detectronic introduced at Gulfood Manufacturing, is the DeteX 30, which can help food processing companies detect foreign objects in their products.
“Besides all types of metal an X-ray machine can also detect foreign objects such as stone, hard plastic, ceramics and glass in food products. It can also detect contaminations such as poultry and fish-bone – whether they were in the raw foods from the beginning or have been added by mistake during the processing,” says Brian Poulsen, Owner and Managing Director of Detectronic A/S.
A metal detector is another application that can detect foreign objects in food products. According to Brian Poulsen the choice of machine is often based on the customer’s requirements.
“Our metal detector locates iron, aluminum and stainless steel. In theory, you only need an X-ray machine if you need to search for objects other than metal. Often the food processing companies have to meet certain standards from the customers which at the end determine if they choose an X-ray machine or metal detector.”
WEIGHING REDUCES LOSS
Food processing companies can also optimize their production by carefully weighing products before they hit the store shelves.
“By weighing the products you make sure that the amount on the package fits the content. This prevents waste and saves the manufacturer money because it eliminates over – and underweight of the products,” Brian Poulsen finishes.
