Metal Detection, X-Ray or Both Making the Right Choice

Taking place:

Friday, May 20, 2016 - 03:00 PM - 04:00 PM UK Time
This is a 10.00 AM Eastern US Start

Presenter:
 

Robert Rogers, Senior Advisor for Food Safety & Regulation, Mettler Toledo

 

Webinar Overview:

Food and Pharmaceutical product manufacturers have an obligation to comply with industry legislation and regulation. It is necessary to have effective inspection processes in place where there is a clear risk of contamination. The choice of protection and inspection equipment to identify potential contaminants can have a huge effect on product quality and safety and on consumer confidence. One of the key inspection choices that manufacturers face is whether to install a metal detection system, an x-ray inspection system, or both. This presentation will help you to decide.

 Sérgio: Hi, from Portugal.
 Billy: Both have metal and x-ray
 LORENA: metal detector
 Nives: Please ask Roger to focus his presentation
 LAKSHMI: Hello From England 
 heather: Hi. presentation is out of focus. 
 Laura: The presentation is blurry
 dj: Hi I'm not sure if it is my connection but the presentation looks blurry to me right about now
 Missy: I seem to have lost audio. Is there an error in the presentation or is it something on my end?
 alyssa: Billy, what type of facility or products do you run that you have both?  Very nice.
 Carme: the presentation still blurry
 Roberta: Hi from Barbados
 Arquelio: Hello
 Kirsten: What a nice way to explain this!
 chris: I agree
 Dylena Kent: Hello, our group come not connect
 Simon Timperley: If any member cannot view youtube you will not be able to view the webinar
 Khian: hello
 Arquelio: Try Browser Compatibilty or use Chrome
 Carme: in china, several times I hear the statement, that no ferreus is not necessary as it is the same as the SS. Can you comment on why this statement is not correct_
 Carme: also, if the least of the sensitivity is the center of the area, can you commenton why many standards require to challenge the metal detector in different places of the belt and product? (right, middle, left...)
 Rupali: What is the best option for a chicken processing plant?
 Diane Burgess Ipsen: How do we detect rust?
 Reda: hi
 Lorilee: Good morning from Regina, SK, Canada
 Matthew: Chrome didn't work for me.  I switched to Internet Explorer and it works.
 Aliyu: Good Afternoon From Abuja, Nigeria
 Carme: as an auditor, I find many facilities that as calibration of the metal detector they just pass the test pieces and record in a certificate if successful or not. However, I know this is not acceptable as a calibration, only a verification. Can you let briefly explain the calibration process? 
 Simon Timperley: Good Matthew, sometimes its trial and error. due to browser settings for cookies, corrupt temp files etc.  
 Mel: hi from Philippines.....10:30pm here.
 heather: Hi carme it is better that both metals should be tested because SS and ferrous have different compositions unless the plant uses only SS. As part of FS risks assessment, we need to  consider every possible parts. As from previous experience.
 Elizabeth: it is very blurry
 Lindsay: Would X-Rays successfully detect ceramic packaging? I.e. small party food products
 Ahmed Waqar: No video
 Rigo: Hi. please focus presentation
 Simon Timperley: If any member cannot view youtube you will not be able to view the webinar
 Martin: Is it possible to detect glass fragments in glass bottle of juice by x-ray?
 Simon Timperley: Rigo focus is related to your internt connection speed
 Kaveh: I have no voices, why?
 David: David from ", east London.
 Imran jamal: Hi Simon
 Simon Timperley: Hi Imra
 Emma Fonseca: Hi
 Ahmed Waqar: Hi
 Simon Timperley: Imran :-)
 Ana Chaves: Hi from Portugal
 vinod: hi sir
 Imran jamal: It's very  blurr  slide
 Janice Mabey: hi all!
 Dave: what is the smallest foot print anyone is using for X-Ray?
 Imran jamal: Is this xray can detect any pest or flies?
 vinod: can Xray detech hair
 Kaveh: No, metal detection can find metals and some plastic piecs, in theie range.
 vinod: plactic pieces can detected by xray
 Wayne: Depends on the plastic and the density of the product around the plastic
 Rupali: Can x-ray detector detect cartilage?
 Lindsay: 1.5mm
 Michele McLeskey: presentation is fuzzy
 vinod: difference b/w metal detection & xrays
 Wayne: What is the break point for xray, colse to the UHMW at 1.15 or PVC at 1.7?
 Kaveh: I saw one time that metal detection couldn't find a big pieces of metal, even we calibrated it. I don't know what happened in that time. everything was routine.?
 Imran jamal: Can we use the xray for bulk packaging ? Example   10 kg box of baguette frozen products? ? 
 Narongchai: can we use to detect "soft bone"?
 Billy: pkg/end of line
 Reda: Final product
 Sérgio: One after deepfrozen and another in packaging
 Ingo: Hi Simon I ould only select one.
 Matthew: Foreign material inspection systems are located in multiple areas for us and not all types of processing areas that we have are mentioned in the list.
 alyssa: Can you also mask by particulate size?  e.g. glass shard piece in salsa with mostly uniform particulate sizes? 
 alyssa: > $
 Ingo: inspection vs sieving 
 Sujit: hi
 Yehia: Hi
 crystal : hi everyone
 Kaveh: Hi 
 Ehab: Martin ; yes it could be I used to many years ago ;the challanage is in the false rejection due to the defects of the glass bottle it self ,as far you have a high quality of glass bottles as far the false rejection is less, also the dimensions and alignment of the glass fragment is important 
 Kirsten: Can you speak to placement of test wands?  I have a solid product (chocolate) that is going through a metal detector.  Not practical to imbed test wand in product - are wands placed over/under/beside product and adequate test since there should be no product effect?
 Martin: Ehab, Thanks.
 Analiesel: We only use metal detectors in our plant, but the rejects that we inspect contains small rocks. How are those detected by the metal detector?
 Lindsay: Kirsten - the test want would be placed on top as it would be closest to the center of the aperture of the Metal Detector (weakest point)
 Bisi: Thanks
 Kirsten: that was really an excellent presentation - much appreciated!
 Ehab: What does the threshold means and what is the number of beers in the x ray
 Aliyu: thnak you very much Simon and robert
 Bisi: Very good presentation
 steve: good presentation, very knowledgeable and helpful
 Ian John: very informative presentation
 Imran jamal: Are these xrays  can adjust  online and connect with server and send us pop up email when detect any hazard?
 Aurora Fernández: Thank you for this practical presentation
 Sabina: good presentation. very informative
 Khian: I work in a sausage processing plant and the metal detector detects salt which is one of our batching ingredient. this gives false alarm. Any recommendatons
 slavica: Excellent Robert and Simon. Thanks!
 Wayne: Khian, try introducing the salt as you mix, not all at one time.  I have a similar problem with spinach
 Arquelio: This has been the most simple and coversome presentation.
 Patricia: Whats the best detection method to detect metal during  Ham processing?
 Ronald Wiseman: hello everyone
 CHANDRA PRAKASH : hello everyone
 Ana Chaves: About false rejections on X-rays detections, ... what are the sources about it? 
 Arquelio: OSHA must have a trained  technician on site to handle repairs and Have a Radiological Safety Program 
 Teresa: very good Simon and Robert, thank you. Have a nice weekend
 Ehab: Thx a lot ; one of the best webinars
 Kaveh: excelent webinar. thank you and have a great time.
 alyssa: Very concise presentation and very clear pronunciation.  Thank you Robert! 
 Amie: Does a x-ray machine require a higher voltage to operate compared to a metal detector?
 Andre Vieira: Can Robert comment on detecting voids in product with X-ray.. Like hollow heart disease in potatoes or large low density contaminants that are in product that show up as low density areas in the product ( large plastic pieces in chocolate)
 Carlito: Hi Carlito from The Philippines
 Khian: Point taken Wayne
 Michelle : Good evening 
 Kirsten: Thank you so much - Robert you rock!
 Aliyu: Once again, Thank you very much, Simon and Robert
 Natalia : Thank you, have a nice weekend. Really happy participate  in seminar.
 Laura: What is the difference between Threshold and Sensitivity
 Sérgio: Thank you. Excelente webinar.
 CHANDRA PRAKASH : I manufacture PET Preform for Water bottles. How xray would help me to find metal detection.
 Jorge: Thank you. Very good informtion
 Imran jamal: Thanks a lot  Simon, you are doing extra ordinary  activity to establish  the great food safety culture 
 Michelle : If your metal contaminant is way bigger than your current test pieces, it creates a distortion in the magnetic field signal. How will you ensure that the contaminant is ejected? 
 Michelle : In your metal detector
 Odette: Very informative presentation
 heather: Thank you so much. Very informative presentation and discussion.
 Imran jamal: Thanks Robert and Simon.great job...
 Teresa: thank you again
