Why Food Radar?
Foreign Bodies
The System
Detection Principle
The Pilot Plant


"At Schwartauer Werke we have followed the advancements of the Food Radar detection technology for some time. With its latest developments we find it to be a very suitable tool in our ongoing programs for improved quality and food safety. We have therefore implemented the system in fruit processing after proving its ability to detect pits, plastic and other foreign bodies. The systems ability to address low density foreign bodies impressed us."

“We had been searching for a solution to primarely detect low density contaminates such as fruit stones and fragments, pieces of plastic, plastic tape etc for our jam filling line. Until we discovered the Food Radar solution this proved to be absolutely impossible. We read about the application of the Food Radar and after initial tests we bought and installed the system. It has had an enormous effect as is able to emit contamination that our in-line magnets, metal detector or X-Ray system can not identify.”

"With increasing use of plastics in everyday applications and the difficulty of detecting them on-line, many food companies regard plastics as one of the most important causes of foreign body complaints."
