S&S Inspection Making sure it's pure news

Freefall Metal detector for Pasta Lines

What has once started as a small bakery has until today grown into a medium-size family owned company that produces pasta in various forms, sauces and several ready-made products. In this big industrial company on an area of more than 20,000 m sq. about 150 employees are producing products of perfect quality under highest technical and hygienic standards. This company just outside Munich required a metal detector with a focus primarily in detection. In the enquiry from Bernbacher, quality assurance was the most important factor. According to the customer´s description a system should be used to inspect pasta filling at the end of a production line. The desired sensitivities that should be reached were defined and were the incentive for the upcoming test for the company.

The tests were performed with pasta in a free fall application, using a P-SCAN RS 170 metal detector. For this application the metal detector with round aperture of the P-SCAN Series was exactly the right solution, highly stable in sounding metal metal work. This system was perfectly matched to the customer specific requirements and was be easily integrated.

Only a few tests were necessary because right from the start the results were quite clear. The customer´s requirements concerning the desired scanning sensitivities could be exceeded by far and the customer also was highly satisfied with clear and hygienic design. In addition to all the technical criteria and the positive results, the excellent service and the perfect project handling also were decisive for the decision for a continuing cooperation with Sesotec.

X-Ray inspection coffee metalized packs

The business of Sesotec´s reference customer Khao Shong Group Co.,Ltd. is coffee blending. Over the years Khao Shong has developed the perfect manufacture process to ensure the optimal flavour of coffee.

Committed to nature and to the efficient use of resources this customer also strives to achieve highest quality. They were thus able to establish themselves in the market and to win the confidence of various OEM customers for whom they produce today.

In the production of coffee mix (3in1 instant coffee, milk powder and sugar) fragmented metal particles from processing machines might contaminate the product. If this coffee mix – as is the case with this customer – is packed in metallized packs it is difficult to detect metal particles with conventional metal detection methods. Therefore, this company was looking for alternative methods for contaminant detection.

The RAYCON X-Ray inspection system from Sesotec is able to detect even smallest metal particles in metallized packs and to sort out contaminated products. Faulty activations are systematically avoided. It is quite easy to make such statements, but Sesotec in an extensive test run at the customer's plant also provided proof of the system's performance.

Says Chana Chiralerspong, Managing Director from Khao Shong Group Co.,Ltd.: "Sesotec's X-Ray technology at present is the best technology to meet the high demands of our quality management. And the experience we have in the meantime made with Sesotec's customer service further confirmed our decision for the RAYCON system."
