Robust inspection system keeps sausages safe

Robust inspection system keeps sausages safe
Pre-packed meat and sausage company, Aldenhoven, wanted the highest possible quality standards, exceeding IFS requirements. But finding suitable metal detection and separation equipment that was both easy to use and reliable proved to be far from easy. A major problem was the inspection of sausage meat filling for very small particles of metal from the production process without wasting an unacceptable quantity of the product. The strong and variable product effect combined with high vibration levels and wet operating conditions demanded a very high specification inspection system. The solution came in the form of a Liquiscan metal detection system with the Genius control unit from S+S Inspection.

Designed specifically for use with pumped liquid and paste products, the S+S Liquiscan can be installed with all types of conventional filling machines without any problems. The Genius control unit is designed for quality control systems used in automatic processes and the 'Auto-Learn' capability automatically adjusts for product effect changes. The system logbook can record one thousand events and produce date and time stamped documentation to HACCP and ISO 9000 standards.

As an additional safeguard, Aldenhoven also installed an S+S Unicon-D end-of-line metal detection system to identify magnetic and non-magnetic contamination in packed products, both sausages and meats immediately before despatch.
