    Is there any inspection equipment to detect seeds or traces of plastics, thread etc. in food products?

    We have a lot of solutions to ensure products free of metal, glass and many other contaminants, but I think that we still need to do a bit more in terms of fool proofing our process to ensure no cross contamination and in terms of automatic inspection of organic contaminants.

    Any inspection equipment suggestions for this?

    Can anyone recommend a suitable check-weigher to do 425 grams of cans at 600 CPM or more?

    I know MT may have a suitable solution, looking for some other company who may have a competitive product at these speeds.

    Any suggestions?
