Glass contamination occurs in all types of packaging (boxes, bottles, jars, cans, pouchers, PE bags) and in all food industries. The type of glass and colour is not important.
Food packaged in glass is by definition sensitive to glass contaminants. Producers who use glass packaging can do a lot to prevent glass contamination, but there are several moments in the process where a Critical Point can arise. The control of QA and operators is in such cases is advisable.
If an incident should occur (glass breakage, cap refusal, etc.), the producer can continue production and submit the blocked products to ScreenTec for inspection. We then take over the entire control process for you. All this under the watchful eye of our FSSC22000 V5 certification.
GLASS IN GLASS DETECTION is also possible
Glass detection is performed by ScreenTec in a very efficient way. Our highly sensitive equipment (depending on the type of product and packaging) can detect glass splinters from > Ø 2mm (in the jar, bottle, can, bag or box). The reliability of our service is high; many of our customers regularly bring products for inspection. It saves valuable and expensive products and provides immediate profit. The alternative – destruction – costs a lot of money and production has to be done all over again.
