hotdog sorting machine by tomra

ViskoTeepak and TOMRA Food joined forces to develop a casing solution that would make it easier for hotdog producers to detect casing pieces in peeling operations while still being able to track the color formation of the sausage during processing. The result of this synergy is an entirely new patent-pending innovation in the world of casing detection.

This innovation can be used to produce skinless sausages of all types, including frankfurters, hotdogs, mini-salamis and much more.

Combining TOMRA’s Genius optical sorter with ViskoTeepaks’ D-Tech development doesn’t only allow for casing detection but it is also possible to sort on size and other quality deviations such as color.

WORKING PRINCIPLE NEW CASING DETECTION VISKOTEEPAK & TOMRA

In the production of skinless sausages, it is essential to guarantee that all the casing fragments are removed from the surface of the hotdogs after peeling. ViskoTeepak has developed a particular casing type, “Wienie-Pak D-Tech,” that allows producers to verify that the casings are completely removed.

This type of casing contains a particular component in the full body of the casing. This component leaves the casing fully transparent in normal conditions but becomes detectable in combination with TOMRA’s Genius optical sorting machine.
