Loma Increases Focus On Convenience Food Market
Driven by busy ‘time poor’ lifestyles and an ageing population, the convenience food market continues to flourish.

With growing demand for products that have longer shelf life, can be eaten on the move, are simple to use and boast more innovative packaging formats, Loma Systems (www.loma.com; +44 (0) 1252 893300) is highlighting the suitability of its high performance combination X5c X-ray and Checkweighing unit for inspecting frozen and chilled ready meals and food-to-go options.

The two integrated ‘detect and weigh’ technologies ensure food safety for brand protection, and consistency in weight, size and shape.

As well as ready meals, there is an increasing trend for portable meal options that are normally consumed off premises, with retailers continuously developing new food products that make eating on the move easier, but that also offer authenticity, premium quality and healthier choices.

Ready meals and food-to-go products often contain multiple elements or ingredients packaged in different compartments, include additional items like cutlery or condiments, and have high salt content. Plus many snacks such as nuts and cereals fluctuate in density which can make it difficult to find foreign bodies. All of these variants can create inspection challenges for convenience food manufacturers.

Capable of weighing products while simultaneously inspecting for foreign bodies in one compact and easy to use format, Loma’s X5c X-ray combination system has been specially developed with ready meal and food-to-go processors and packers in mind. The technologically advanced machine detects physical contaminants whilst ensuring perfect product presentation and quality assurance with fill level and seal inspection, mass measurement and component counts. It can also identify lumps of product including seasoning or powder.

Loma’s X5c X-ray combination system can be easily integrated where production space is limited and helps manufacturers adhere to the latest British Retail Consortium (BRC) standards and meet major retailers’ codes of practice. The X5c X-ray machine can be bolted on to an existing CW3 Checkweigher as one unit for truly effective Critical Control Point (CCP) detection.

Built to Loma’s ‘Designed to Survive’ specifications, the X5c X-ray combination unit, including reject facility, measures just 2.5 metres in length. Produced from stainless steel, the complete combination unit is lead free and offers an unrivalled IP55 wash down design. Capable of running at speeds up to 150 packs per minute, it is operated using two independent control panels and has separate reject bins for out of weight and contaminated products.

Convenience foods packaged in foil and metallised film, as well as changes in product temperature and moisture content have no effect on the sensitivity of the foreign body inspection capabilities of Loma’s X5c.

The X5c reduces the cost of ownership of X-ray technology by 30% when compared to the company’s other X5 models, making it ideal for food companies keen to make the switch to X-ray for the first time or to replace lower performance ferrous-in-foil twin head metal detectors. This fully specified system offers good quality contaminant inspection using a reduced number of well-proven subcomponents and streamlined design.

The X5c is multilevel password protected for improved data management, which means the system can log events against individual operators. It is ideal for the detection of all metal types, glass, calcified bone, rubber and stone in various packaging. The machine is capable of handling products up to 100mm (height) x and 300mm (width) and weighing no more than 6kg – making it ideal for a wide range of inspection applications.

With significant energy saving benefits and providing the best balance of processing power to inspection, the X5c X-ray machine incorporates a detector array with 0.8mm diode pitch offering a low 80 watt power consumption and self-contained high efficiency X-ray generator. A simple, effective cooling mechanism ensures long tank life and maintenance-free operation.

Loma’s range of CW3 checkweighers offer peace of mind that every packed product leaving the production line will have the correct weight and meet strict legal or retailer requirements.

Like the X5c, the CW3 checkweigher is designed for operation in the toughest of production environments. It boasts quick change conveyor parts and powerful AC motors plus the tubular framework delivers a hygienic design but is flexible if transport or reject systems need to be changed.

Anritsu Weighing In With Highly Accurate Systems For Food Sector
Award-winning supplier of food safety solutions, Anritsu Infivis Ltd, is targeting the UK market with its latest range of SSV Checkweighers that have been designed to provide higher accuracy and better line productivity than conventional systems through minimising unnecessary rejects.

Anritsu, which also offers cutting-edge food safety equipment for detecting contaminants in fresh and processed products, utilises Smart Measurement Function (SMF) technology in its SSV Checkweighers for maximising accuracy.

Conventional checkweighers use the weigh cell signal, after signal processing, to determine the weight of each product as it passes over the weigh table. If two packs are detected at the same time, a ‘double product error’ will occur and the system is forced to reject both products since each individual product weight cannot be determined.

Product spacing is normally established by these systems through increasing the checkweigher conveyor speed, compared to the normal line speed, to prevent two products being on the weigh scale at the same time. Double products are then rejected with an error rate of 0.15%, while due to the increased conveyor speed, scale accuracy is 0.75g.

The versatile SSV Series is among the most advanced food weighing equipment of its type in the world, boasting innovative signal processing, multi-threaded filtering and improved scale resolution, to minimise ‘double product errors’.

SSV Checkweighers, equipped with SMF, provide product spacing, while conveyor speed is maintained. By running slower, the SSV system offers higher accuracy even if two products are on the weigh scale at the same time. Double product rejection rate is down with an error rate of just 0.03% however scale accuracy is maintained at 0.35g.

Anritsu’s ultra-sensitive and hygienic SSV Series is available in various models, in both waterproof and non-waterproof versions, incorporating precision-engineered construction for high accuracy, high speed and high protection suitable for a range of applications including heavy products.

They come with a colour LCD touch screen enhancing usability and system navigation. Six standard view screens are available to quickly see product weight or trending information. The SSV supports 200 different products which can be stored in the memory of the machine.

Eddie Daniels, Anritsu’s UK Sales Manager, said: “The SSV Series is extremely versatile and cost-effective technology which has been developed to offer exceptionally accurate and consistent weighing of products. Ideal for the food and pharmaceutical industries, the machines’ hygienic design is perfect for unpackaged and fresh foods which require stringent sanitary control.”

Anritsu has helped increase productivity of food manufacturers and promoted consumer safety through its dynamic, high accuracy weighing solutions and reliable inspection techniques since 1964. Anritsu designs and develops all its products in-house to support every solution with 100% confidence. Its food safety solutions have earned global recognition for their outstanding performance, capability and credibility.

Multihead Weigher Solution For Sticky Mushrooms
An Ishida Screwfeeder multihead weigher has completed the automatic weighing process at leading French mushroom supplier Borde, handling the most challenging and naturally sticky type of mushrooms – those that have just been blanched, ready for canning or bottling – with improved throughput and accuracy.

Having installed an Ishida weigher to handle its dried and frozen mushrooms, Borde initially selected a weigher from another supplier for its blanched mushrooms. However, this was not up to the job, because these mushrooms are far stickier than the dried or frozen mushrooms, clinging to feeders and hoppers, and this is made worse by the small pieceweight of the product, which prevents gravity from overcoming the adhesion forces.

The Ishida replacement solution – chosen by Borde after submissions from three leading multihead weigher manufacturers - is a 14-head Screwfeeder model, in which the mushrooms are received from the dispersion table into feeder troughs which contain large metal spirals (screws). These push the product gently but very firmly along to the hoppers.

The dispersion table itself is a rotating, cone-shaped unit which easily shrugs off the mushrooms falling from the infeed, discouraging sticking and moving them decisively into the screwfeeder system.

When the mushrooms reach the ends of the troughs they fall, channelled by embossed metal shrouds, into non-stick plastic pool hoppers, from where they are released into weigh hoppers of similar construction. The doors of both sets of hoppers open with a scraping action that prises off any clinging mushrooms.

A further appeal of the new Ishida solution was the fact that it was a ‘drop-in’ replacement for the rejected model, with no changes needed to the infeed conveyors or to the discharge distribution system.

Borde Chairman and Managing Director Alain Borde is very pleased with the new multihead, which can handle mushrooms of all textures.

“We have increased production by 20% and really mastered our target weights in terms of both accuracy and consistency, which is crucial, given the expensive nature of the raw product,” he explains.

For the dried and frozen mushrooms, Borde uses a 14-head Ishida weigher which is mounted on wheels, giving it the flexibility to be shuttled back and forth between the two lines as required.
