Bakery Metal DetectorThe manufacturing of baked goods such bread, pastries, buns and rolls, is very similar to how you would bake at home.  The only difference is the scale of the equipment used.  Food processing equipment manufacturers continue to develop more efficient systems to produce higher quality goods more quickly.  Mixing machines, such as Doyon Baking Equipment, scale the process of mixing raw ingredients for large batch processing.  As you would expect bakery equipment largely consists of metal components used to stir flour, sugar, wheat and yeast together.  It’s this mixing process that often introduces metal fragments in to the process flow.  

Bakery Metal Detector

As with any other food production plant bakeries are susceptible to contaminates entering in to the production flow.  For many years companies have relied on industrial food metal detector’s to detect and automatically reject contaminated products.  Metal detector manufacturers such as Goring Kerr and Safeline have engineered systems that integrate in to high risk locations throughout the plant.

Common locations to install a bakery metal detector

The most common locations to install a metal detector in a bakery are:

  1. Raw ingredients line
  2. After mixing machine
  3. After dough line before tray
  4. After cooling conveyor
  5. Before slicer / bagging machine

As with any bakery machine proper installation is critical.  Reading and understanding the manufacturers manual will ensure peak performance and long term success.  Metal detection equipment requires both correct installation as well correct setup of the control system.  Reading and following the Goring Kerr Manual is essential for optimum metal detection and reduced false rejections.
