Two equipment companies were on hand to offer a “harsh reality check” to meat processors at a recent trade show in Atlanta.
Loma Systems and Lock Inspection Systems were at the International Production and Processing Expo to demonstrate their latest innovations under the theme: “Designed to survive: is your environment ready for a harsh reality check?”.
Laura Studwell, marketing manager, said: “We can’t think of a more fitting place to join together and showcase exactly what our reputations are built on: solid systems that are designed to survive the rigours of harsh environments.”
Between them, the companies were demonstrating a complete inspection system, which Studwell said would cope with the toughest production conditions, including x-ray machines and metal detectors.
One product on display was the IQ3+ Stuffer PipeLine metal detector, which the companies said was an inline solution for processing pumped liquids, pastes, slurries and meats.
Also on the stand was the Dorner AquaPruf conveyor system, an FDA-approved sanitary conveyor designed for maintaining hygienic conditions in harsh food processing environments, and the X4 600, featuring the latest developments in x-ray technology. It is capable of detecting bone fragments, stone, rubber and other contaminants with accurate results, the companies claimed.
