‘Invisible’ foreign bodies
Soft plastic is perhaps the most common food contaminant, but it is also one of the most challenging to detect.
Failure to remove it can present serious safety risks for the consumer, which is clearly something every food
manufacturer wants to avoid.
In the fruit processing industry, fragments from fruit stones are a constant concern. With their sharp edges, these contaminants can potentially cause the same damage as fragments of glass. Other common threats include wood splinters from pallets, hard plastics from processing equipment, and rubber from broken gaskets.
The Unique Detection System
Food Radar Systems in Sweden is offering a revolutionary technology to remove foreign matter during the
manufacture of pumpable food products.
Were other detection systems uses X-ray, magnetic fields or cameras, the Food Radar® is based on microwave technology.
It not only has the power to detect dense foreign bodies but also previously undetectable contaminants such as wood, soft plastic and vegetable matter. The Food Radar® truly represents a ground-breaking advance in food safety standards.
Serving several food segments
The Food Radar® is designed for pumpable foods of low or high viscosity. Whether your product is homogeneous or contains particles, the Food Radar® reduces the risk of contaminated product reaching the consumer.
While we are honoured that our work is being recognised by the food industry, the most important thing to us is that it is solving a serious food safety issue. Seeing our technology being used to protect consumers is the best reward and recognition we could ever wish for.
