Issues During Potato Chips & Fries Production

The Solutions You Need

With the developing puffed products Industry, the processing of chips or related products skills is more complex. Thus puffed snack manufacturers need to be concerned about the lengthy processing that may cause contaminants to enter the processing of chips, popcorn, fries, shrimp strips, corn balls, etc.

X-Ray Inspection

Puffed products are generally made from beans, grains and potatoes. During the raw material harvesting stage, contaminants may be mixed with many non-metallic contaminants. To ensure products meet all common food industry guidelines, a wider range of x-ray inspection systems are better than metal detectors to solve the problems.

Weight Checking

Puffed products are generally light in weight and prone to underweight during processing and packaging. To ensure that the product reaches the specified weight, potato chip manufacturers must choose highly accurate and stable checkweighers.

Metal Detecting

Puffed products (such as potato chips, corn balls, shrimp fries, etc.) require frequent equipment cleaning because of the complex processing environment. But the machine wear and tear of equipment, contaminated raw materials, and employee negligence are still more likely to lead to pollution impurities. So puffed food manufacturers must choose professional metal detection for the production line.
