TOMRA’s advanced sorting machines inspect millions of individual product pieces per hour, typically recovering five to ten percent higher yields while providing superior utilization or resources.
That’s equivalent to approximately 25,000 trucks worth of potatoes per year!
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.
Hotdog and mini-salami sorting by TOMRA and Viskoteepak - New casing detection sausages
Casing detection hotdogs
Defects in hotdogs
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.
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.
The Genius™ optical belt sorting machine uses a combination of various sorting technologies to meet the high food safety requirements of the industry and individual food processors.
TOMRA Food develops the world's most advanced grading, sorting, peeling, and analytical technology. Food growers, packers, and processors around the world use TOMRA machines to sort a variety of fresh whole products and processed food to maximize output and minimize waste.
