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

IQ4 Conveyorized Metal Detector identifies contaminated raw product by stopping on detect and alarming
A carriage retract is an alternative to a belt-stop / alarm reject and removes contaminated product from the line

X5 XL800 X-ray Inspection System
Designed to be integrated into the production process at either the beginning to protect equipment or at the end to protect consumers, the X5 XL 800 is perfect for products such as meat in Euro crates or cheese in bulk boxes.
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
