X-Ray Inspection Of Rice Grains And Pasta

X-Ray Inspection Of Rice Grains And Pasta

Danrice is a leading international B2B supplier of pre-cooked IQF rice, grains and pasta for the food industry with a particular focus on the ready-meals market. In 2004, Danrice became part of the Ebro Foods Group and created a joint venture with Keck Spezialitäten in 2013 to form Europe’s largest independent supplier of IQF rice, pasta and grains under EBROFROST GmbH holding.

It is never possible to reliably exclude impurities in the raw goods when dealing with natural products. This applies not only to rice but also to lentils, bulgur, couscous and quinoa. Danish company DANRICE A/S processes all these products in Ørbæk and for all of them relies on X-ray scanners to identify and separate out foreign bodies in good time during the incoming goods inspection. The systems used for this, supplied by WIPOTEC-OCS from Kaiserslautern, have such high detection sensitivity and good detection rates that they can detect even the smallest contaminants.
