Contaminant-Free Meat and Sausages

Sesotec product inspection systems ready for Industry 4.0

(PresseBox) (Schönberg, ) At the IFFA 2016 in Frankfurt (hall 9.1, stand C58) Sesotec GmbH presents sophisticated metal and contaminant detectors and separators especially for the meat industry. The VARICON+ and UNICON+ metal detection systems with the new INTUITY metal detector and the new design RAYCON D product inspection system are presented as trade fair highlights. The spectrum of exhibited systems is completed by the LIQUISCAN metal separators for filler applications, systems that are well-proven in the meat industry.

Metal detection systems – high sensitivity and ease of operation

The metal detection systems are equipped with the new INTUITY metal detection coil. With multi-simultaneous-frequency technology INTUITY reaches a scanning sensitivity that is up to 50 percent higher than in other systems on the market. Since this coil operates with multiple frequencies in parallel, highest product purity is ensured also in demanding applications with a high product effect. With the new developed INTUITY CONTROL user interface the system also offers improved ease of operation.

With the VARICON+ and UNICON+ metal detection systems both packed products and meat that is transported in E1/E2 boxes (fresh or frozen) can be inspected for accidental metal contaminations. The systems even detect smallest metal particles in products and thus ensure that meat and sausage products are free from metallic contaminations.

X-ray technology a must in the meat industry

Product inspection systems operating with X-ray technology already are widely used in the meat industry. Sesotec's RAYCON D product inspection system primarily is used for the final inspection of packed products and allows high-precision inline detection of a wide variety of contaminants such as magnetic and non-magnetic metals, glass, ceramics, stones, raw bones, and some types of plastics. RAYCON D combines proven Sesotec X-ray technology with hygienic design and ease of operation.

With respect to hygienic design, the conveyor belt in the RAYCON D system can be replaced within two minutes by only one operator.

LIQUISCAN metal separators – compact and proven in thousands of applications

LIQUISCAN metal separators are especially designed for the inspection of sausage meat or similar pasty materials. With their compact design these separators can be directly installed at the outlet of a vacuum filler. When a metal contamination is detected the conveying process is stopped or a pneumatic reject valve automatically separates the contaminated sausage meat from the filling process into a collecting container. With different connections the system can be easily combined with all filler and clipper systems and various attachment units commonly used in the meat industry.

What all Sesotec systems have in common is a mechanical design that meets the special hygienic requirements of the food industry ("hygienic design"). Sesotec product inspection systems are "ready for Industry 4.0" and can be networked with other plant components, which increases the total efficiency, quality and flexibility of production.
