Meat and seafood processing is a complex business, whether you are processing and/or packaging products for retail sale, portion-ready cuts for hotel, restaurant, and institutional food service, or your products include fresh, chilled and frozen meat or seafood products, cured meats, fresh and cooked sausage, or canned meat preparations
The Xtreme® rectangular aperture industrial metal detector raises the bar in terms of superior sensitivity, ease of use and reliability.
A pilot mill is used for producing small quantities of product for sensory, chemical, microbiological evaluations, limited market testing, shelf-life and storage stability studies. The data collected from pilot plant experiments is crucial in deciding whether or not to proceed to full scale production processing.
The Octane Elite EDS System from EDAX Inc. incorporates a silicon nitride (Si3N4) window to provide low energy sensitivity for light element detection and low kV microanalysis. The system uses state of the art electronics designed to yield high speed X-ray data processing within a smaller and fully vacuum encapsulated detector device.
PODs can be utilized in a multitude of applications including: monoclonal antibodies, vaccine or recombinant proteins, personalized medicines, cell and gene therapy and even laboratory use.
Maximizing food safety in poultry processing has never been more important. As a result, poultry facilities are incorporating strategically-placed X-ray detection systems on-line throughout production facilities.
Safety. Ask any food manufacturer what’s top of mind these days, and that’s what they’ll say. This article illustrates seven common safety mistakes in food plants — and how to avoid them.
Serkka Farms, a family-owned and operated produce company, has more than 2,000 hectares where they grow a wide variety of products, such as tomatoes, cucumbers, peppers, grains, soy beans, and oil seeds. The company was seeking ways to dramatically increase its output, while watching labor costs drop. This Case Study shows how the company implemented automated tomato processing lines to do just that.
A large dairy facility’s wastewater treatment plant was looking for ways to reduce chemical coagulant costs and labor to monitor and operate the dissolved air flotation (DAF) unit. This case study examines the solutions that helped facility control its chemical costs and help them reassign some of their utilities mechanics’ and operators’ time to more productive tasks.
An international mining company was looking at electrocoagulation for waste treatment at a copper mine in South America. A sample from ore processing was provided for bench-scale testing.
Containment is key during aseptic processing and this has led to the development of new transfer methods that are both enclosed and minimize the requirement for operator intervention.
Nordzucker, Europe's second largest sugar producer, uses a range of different filling and packaging machines in its operations in both of its Polish production plants. However, some of the production plants are already over 20 years old, and are no longer state of the art. This case study explores how the company modernized these plants with the help of weighing technology.
The amount of image data that must be transferred to computers for storage and processing is continuously increasing in all fields of application. The demand for fast, reliable data transfer increases in turn. This white paper discusses the progression of camera interfaces, and how they are continuously improved to enable reliable streaming data transfer from the camera to the computer.
Radio frequency power measurement has been an important component of semiconductor processing since the time that plasma was first used for wafer processing. Power measurement was, and continues to be important, as radio frequency energy is used to excite the plasma, and the plasma characteristics are in large part determined by the excitation energy. In this article, we will discuss various means of measuring radio frequency power, along with their limitations. In addition, we will present the best calibration methods for radio frequency power measuring instruments.
The versatility of the Inline Magnet means that it is used across a wide range of industries, including food. However, the Inline Magnet is not ideal for every metal separation application.
In order to meet the global population’s growing demand for food, research by the Food and Agricultural Organization of the United Nations (FAO) predicts that the worldwide food manufacturing and processing industries need to increase their total output by 70 percent by 2050. This article will explain several ways to enhance the efficiency of food production.
Integrated point of sale (POS) solutions have become part of the retail mainstream, and this has led more merchants to look for cloud-based tools to help improve their business management capabilities. For POS software developers, the cloud makes it easier to offer enterprise-grade solutions to small and medium-sized businesses (SMBs). For merchants, the cloud offers an affordable alternative to costly and complex software deployments.
Retail CIO Outlook magazine has chosen Cardknox as one of the Top 10 Retail Payment Solution Providers of 2017, as featured in its December 2017 edition. Selected by a panel of CEO’s, CIO’s, and analysts, Cardknox was singled out for its developer-friendly approach, lowest processing rates, and easy integration capabilities.
Across the country, merchants are making the switch from accepting WIC paper vouchers to using the new WIC electronic funds transfer (EBT), or eWIC, system, as part of a nationwide initiative to modernize the WIC checkout process.
