In-line: Bulk or Loose Products 

Loma offer a wide range of food inspection systems for bulk or loose products within the protein industry.  The systems vary depending on the application and will cover products such as chicken nuggets, joints of meat and large trays of protein product.

Optimize and automate the production process

Scanning products in-line which are either loose, unpackaged or bulk/large during processing helps to optimize factory processes by:

  • Protects equipment: Protects down-line machinery from damage caused by harder contaminants damaging expensive processing and packaging equipment
  • Reduces waste: Allows contaminated product to be isolated and dealt with prior to going through more costly processing stages and packaging
  • Product efficiency: Allows for as much good product to be harvested back into production if found to not be contaminated
  • Reduce giveaway: Monitoring in-line product weight can help provide indicators to optimize portioning and filling

Why use X-ray Inspection?

Improved detection of metal
Detect smaller metal fragments compared to metal detectors systems

Detect bone and other physical hazards
Help improve quality by removing these unwanted contaminants which may still exist after secondary processing

Less susceptible to product conditions
X-ray systems are less susceptible to variations in temperature and humidity, as well as product presentation
