We work closely with QPM being able to supply a wide range of equipment such as X-ray inspection, Checkweighers, Scales, Temperature probes, Data Loggers, pH meters, Gas analysis, Magnetic separators, Stop watches, Vernier callipers.
Your metal detection, clock weighing and x-ray inspection systems are vital to ensuring you meet production goals. In today's changing regulatory environment, meeting production goals while remaining compliant is becoming increasingly difficult. QPM have got the knowledge to ensure your systems stay running throughout its lifecycle.
QPM understands that each production line, facility and industry faces different challenges. We offer multiple levels of support so you can choose the right program for you needs. Depending on the level of support, software updates, training and detailed reports are all available.
Metal detectors are ideal for the food, pharmaceutical and packaging industry. In the food production industry, metal is one of the most commonly found contaminant materials in food. Metal can be introduced at all stages of processing of food, as it is most commonly used in the construction of machinery, handling equipment and ancillary utensils. A metal detector for the food industry can help ensure the safety and integrity of a wide range of unpackaged, packaged or bulk goods, by identifying metal contaminants during processing or packaging and helping to ensure that they do not enter food that we eat. As part of a HACCP program, metal detection systems can be utilised to provide compliance with food safety standards.
There are 3 main groups of metallic contaminants that a food metal detector can sense:
Ferrous, Non-Ferrous and stainless steel detection depending on the magnetic or conductivity properties of the contaminant.
The ability for a conventional metal detector used in the food industry to detect metallic contaminants depends upon their conductivity and magnetic permeability.
Ferrous metal contaminants are both magnetic and conductive and are easily detected. Although they are not magnetic, Non-Ferrous contaminants are good conductors and can be detected relatively easily. Stainless steel foreign bodies are the most difficult to pick-up as they are usually non-magnetic and a poor electrical conductor. The ability to detect stainless steel is also hindered when the product is wet or has a high salt content.
If there are any other types of contaminants such as glass, ceramics, stone to be detected, then an x-ray inspection system for the food will offer you enhanced detection capabilities.
For foil packed products that are packed in metal, aluminium or wrapped in aluminium foil will normally be passed through a conventional metal detector system before they are packed. When this is not possible, products packed in foil must go through a specialist 'ferrous-in-foil' detector.
The range of Metal Detectors are easy to use with intuitive full colour touchscreens and icon-drven menus as well as offering fast inspection and product set up, automatically optimising the systems for each product type allowing you to learn and switch within minutes. QPM machines are made for products ranging from small ready meals through to blocks of cheese, soups, sauces and pharmaceutical pills and tablets.
X-RAY INSPECTION SYSTEM
X-Ray Inspection is a fast growing methods of safe guarding within the food and packaging industries. An X-Ray system will offer the similar levels as a metal detector when it comes to ferrous and non-ferrous contaminants but it will far excel with stainless steel, foil packaging and metallised film detection. X-Ray systems also offer the ability to detect bone, glass, ceramics or stone and dense plastics whilst also checking for product integrity, making it the complete solution in contaminant detection.
The range of Checkweighers are easy to use with intuitive full colour touchscreens and icon-driven menus as well as offering fast inspection and product set up, automatically optimising the systems for each product type allowing you to learn and switch within minutes. QPM machines are made for products ranging from small and ligh schets right through to heavy weight boxes
The megnets are high intensity and have megnetic seperation technology this allows for first class performance. The advanced magnetic sepatator product design have total deliabliliy and compatibility with application. The magnetic seperation systems are used in almost every processing industry to remove ferrous and para-magnetic contamination from process lines, preventing product contamination and damage to machinery. Through a detailed understanding of out markets developed over many years, QPM now lead the way for product quality, performance and service. From simple manually cleaned magnetic seperation units to fully automated PLC controlled systems QPM manufacture the full range of options for every stage of production.
QPM produce high-quality, high power magnetic separators for most applications, including bulk, grain, dry powders, damp powders, liquids and syrups and a comprehensive range of metal detectors and vibratory sieves.
We also have the ability to provide many other products such as Scales, Temperature probes, Data loggers, pH meters, Gas analysis, Stop watches and Vernier calipers.
