Weighing and Detecting In Snack Food Production

In the food inspecting industrial solutions, snack food is an important segment. It included candies, chocolates, cookies, jelly, egg rolls, biscuits, lollipops, chips and so on. Easyweigh, a professional manufacturer of food safety inspecting equipment, provides various kinds of equipment for different production stages of the snack food and confectionery industries.

Challenges For Snack Food Production

Products weight is easy to change

In the snack food industry, the products are generally small and fragmented, so products are easy to lose and miss food desiccant.

Food production processes are easy to develop contamination

With the development of the snack processing industry, the snack-producing step is becoming more and more complex. We have to use more food processing machines. It may result in machine failures. For example, the screws and machine parts may fall in the snack products. Food products may be contaminated with stainless steel.

The temperature of the production environment

During snack processing, we need to provide suitable production temperatures according to different materials. The product signals in the metal detector can be affected by the temperature of the processing line.

Diversity of Product Composition

Some snack foods are composed of multiple ingredients, which presents a consistent density challenge for X-ray inspection systems.
