Austrian cereals brand invests in x-ray inspection kits from Ishida

Austrian cereals brand Bioquelle has invested in x-ray inspection systems from Ishida Europe

The firm said its new x-ray inspection kit from Ishida Europe will enable it to carry out tighter screening for potential contaminants, in particular natural ones such as gravel.

Bioquelle said that at its factory in Steyr, one line is dedicated to large production runs of cereals and muesli with fruit, mixtures of up to six components. The products are similar in density and softness and the line handles just a few formats, all between 400 and 500g.

A second line fills re-closable stand-up bags (70g to 1kg) with a variety of product mixes, including dried fruit, sunflower seeds and soy granules. These tend to vary greatly in water content, posing quite a challenge to X-ray inspection. A third line packs larger sizes (400g to 4kg) of similar products to the second, at a slower rate and with more product changeovers.

The inspection needs of lines 1 and 2 were met with a single Ishida IX-GA-2475 each. For line three an Ishida IX-GA-4075 model, with a larger inspection chamber, was installed.

A fourth Ishida X-Ray Inspection System (another IX-GA-4075) is mounted on wheels and can be moved back and forth to serve two lines in conjunction with two different bagmakers.  According to Ishida, both the 2475 and the 4075 will pick up contaminants such as metal, glass, stone and hard rubber as well as many plastics.

“Consumer safety is paramount,” said Bioquelle managing director Claudia Schrems. “That is why we push it to the limits. And today, X-ray technology has become a mature and affordable option.

“In every respect, Ishida performed convin­cingly which made our decision an easy one.”
