  • 4 Key Insights to Bulk Food Inspection

    Detection of contaminants in a bulk flow of product has been, traditionally, very difficult. Usually, this type of inspection is for dry bulk food items, such as grains, beans, vegetables or fruits. These inspections are looking for contaminants such as rocks, wood (usually from pallets), pieces of...

  • Challenges of Removing Fine Iron from Powders

    Removing metal contamination when the tramp metal and material is granular is far more straightforward than when in a powder form. To determine the best solution to remove fine iron contamination from powders, it is necessary to have a good understanding of the way the fine materials behave....

  • Improving Dryer Yield with Intelligence

    Controlled drying parameters help to ensure that a food or feed product is shelf-stable. However, one single processing deviation can dramatically affect batch results and yield. This may be a result of over drying due to unnoticed process shifts. Today, many food and feed factories are becoming...

  • Packing the Hops for Craft Brewers

    For more than a thousand years brewers have been using hops to give beer its characteristic bitterness and flavor. To the cognoscenti, hops and beer making are inseparable. The many varieties of hops, prepared and added in different quantities and at different times during the brewing process, have...

  • Silo Components That Need Regular Inspection

    Like all structures, silos degrade over time. This natural and inevitable deterioration can lead to safety hazards such as falling debris, leaky structure, fire or explosions, wall failure, roof failure, and/or structural failure. Unaddressed or unknown silo issues jeopardize the quality of stored...
