X-Ray Foodsafety Enhancements for Meat and Poultry Processors 2014

443

Published on

A 360 View of Food Safety—From Food Processor to End User
Novel solutions for detecting product contaminants at every angle of your process
Food processors are constantly looking for ways to uncover unwanted product contaminates. Hard contaminates may cause rejects at the end-user level, missing items in their final package may lead to rework—all of which are causing food processors to invest in inspection technology for piece-of-mind, operational efficiency and brand building.

In this webinar, we will highlight some of the current challenges with food safety techniques from the technology standpoint. Leaders in food processing equipment will review contamination opportunities throughout a typical processing plant; highlight current trends in inspection equipment; and present how a novel X-Ray Detection Machine has effectively addressed the needs of one poultry processor.

  4. 4.  Gainco: The Right Answer for Meat Yields, Productivity and Profits  Subsidiary of Bettcher Industries  Engineered solutions to improve throughputs, yields, and profitability at poultry, red meat, and seafood processors  Strategic partnership with Anritsu facilitates complete system solutions • 24/7 365 Support • Scale calibration • Repair & Training • Infiniti Indicators • DuraWeigh Scales • IP69k durability • Proven Tough Gainco, Inc.
  5. 5. Detection Throughout the Plant John Daley, Director of Sales & Marketing, Gainco, Inc.
  6. 6. Why Inspect? Source: ExpertRECALL  Improved food safety  Better quality control  Reduce the potential of a recall
  7. 7. Why Inspect With X-ray? More consistent performance • Fresh or frozen, wet or dry • Not affected by humidity or other equipment Can provide traceability • System can auto-store images of every rejected product • Facilitates, supports more detailed HACCP logs Will detect more contaminates • Bone, glass, metal, ceramic, dense plastic Final package inspection • Check weigh, clip detection, missing products, voids, etc.
  8. 8. What’s Driving X-ray Inspection? Retailers demanding higher quality • Metal specifications are tightening • Want to detect bone & other materials Improvements in HAACP standards • Knowing what is entering your plant • Respond to issues earlier in the process
  9. 9. What’s Driving X-ray Inspection? Automated deboning is creating more chips & splinters • Greater potential for customer complaints • Protecting your and your customers’ brands Potential premium for inspected product
  10. 10. Where Can X-ray Be Applied? Incoming product • Trim meat or frozen blocks • Detect bones or other contaminates
  11. 11. Where Can X-ray Be Applied? Meat from a debone line • Bone chips or fragments • Fillets, tenders, legs, and thighs
  12. 12. Ground product  After initial grind, prior to blend • Before forming or packaging Where Can X-ray Be Applied?
  13. 13. Marinated product • Injected or tumbled – broken needles Where Can X-ray Be Applied?
  14. 14. Individual packages inspection • Bags or trays • Check weigh & Foreign Material Detection • Missing clips or voids in chubs • Piece count or orientation Where Can X-ray Be Applied?
  15. 15. Full case inspection • Potentially replace multiple MD’s or checkweighers • Final QA inspection is made post secondary packaging Where Can X-ray Be Applied?
  16. 16. Application Examples  2.0-3.0mm bones in poultry breast meat  One customer was able to reduce bone count from over 1,200 per load to less than 4
