Inline quality control with the Meat Sorter

Continuous quality control in the manufacturing process is essential for products with high quality expectations, such as those of the processed meat industry. Manual control is not always feasible, due to high production speeds, exacting demands of the consumers or too high costs. This is where the Meat Sorter from BT-Anlagenbau can help.

How 360° control works

Our 360° camera technology scans almost the entire surface of your products and can detect many different kinds of defects. To do this, the products are brought up to a speed of 2 m/s and then observed by two cameras simultaneously in free flight. Pneumatic ejector valves remove individual defective items accurately out of the product stream. The rest of the products are captured gently and conveyed to the next stage of the process. Our experts will work with you to develop an individual concept that gives you a workable, easy-to-use control step and guarantees the highest quality of your product with the best efficiency. Our advice, concepts and implementation will focus on your specific need.

Upgrade option: HSP Meat Sorter

For sophisticated sorting with a deeper analysis of meat quality, we offer the HSP Meat Sorter, which combines our 360° technology with the successful HSP Food Analyzer. Using hyperspectral image analysis, this module detects additional properties such as fat and water content and also hard-to-detect bone fragments in the meat.
