Contaminant Detection in Chub Packaging

Ground meat chub manufacturers are faced with major challenges in their everyday operations. Actual food contamination can occur at any point on the production line and manufacturers must adhere to rigid quality control measures to ensure that their final product is free of bone fragments, fat lumps or even metal pieces. Proper portioning must also be closely monitored as overfilled or underfilled final products can both lead to potential loss and ultimately tarnish a company’s brand image.

This application note outlines how the Eagle Pack 400 HC can help ground meat chub manufacturers overcome their production line challenges and heighten quality controls with the use of one system designed specifically for the chub industry. With its customizable technology, Eagle’s x-ray equipment has eliminated the need for multiple product inspection machines on one production line.
