Founded in 1968 and based in Arezzo, Italy, CEIA (pronounced "CHAY-uh") is a world leader in metal detection design, engineering, and manufacturing. While their product range includes security/walk-through and hand-held metal detectors, the industrial systems for food processors that Heat and Control will handle detect metal in granular, powder, solid, liquid and viscous products, packages, ferrous-in-foil trays and wrappers, and conveyor-transported products.
Unique features and technology deliver the superior performance of CEIA metal detectors.
Digital Signal Processing
Metal Detection For Every Product Application
CEIA metal detectors provide immunity to interference and response speeds that exceed the most stringent quality control standards.
Model THS/3F Multiple ProductsThe THS/3F metal detector provides excellent results on multi-product lines, where individual products have very different conductivity characteristics. The automatic frequency selection function chooses the optimum of three available frequencies for the product in transit.
Model THS/FB Conveyed ProductsTHS/FB conveyor belts satisfy the most stringent requirements of functionality, compact construction, accuracy and reliability. The belts offer total integration with CEIA's high-performance THS metal detectors, and feature an extremely sanitary stainless steel structure, digital control of belt speed, and ejection of non-conforming products.
Model THS/G Free-Falling ProductsThe THS/G inspects foods, powders, granules and other loose materials transported in free-fall through tubes. The system can signal an integrated packaging machine when contaminated product is detected, and when fitted with a reject valve, remove contaminating magnetic and non-magnetic metals.
Model THS/PLV Liquid & Viscous ProductsThe THS/PLV is a compact integrated system designed for metal contaminant detection and elimination in products transported by pipeline, especially meat, soup, poultry, seafood and other prepared foods. Parts in contact with product can be quickly disassembled for fast and thorough cleaning.
COMPLETE INSPECTION SYSTEMS
CEIA metal detectors and Ishida checkweighers are offered individually and as integrated systems through our new Inspection Systems Division. As with all Heat and Control-supplied products, "One Call Delivers" complete technical support, service, parts and training.
Low Price Bagmaker
|Astro is available with an integrated CCW-RS weigher to create the ultimate snack packaging system.|
For economical snack food packaging, nothing outperforms Ishida's Astro vertical form/fill/seal bagmaker.
Astro's innovative pull-down belt system and servomotor-controlled film feeder produce quality bags at speeds to 80 bags-per-minute. A servomotor in the end seal area insures optimum seal pressure, seal time and seal temperature for consistent seal quality, and the parameters for these settings can be quickly programmed using the easy-to-operate control unit.
The control unit's LCD touch screen with icon-based function descriptions provides an easy means of performing bagger operations. Up to 100 product programs can be pre-set and stored in memory for fast changeovers. Changeovers are further simplified with lightweight formers that can be changed without tools, and fewer film rollers that insure fast film changes.
And since formers are interchangeable across the Ishida bagmaker product line, you can run your Apex or Atlas formers on the Astro to fully realize your investment in formers.
For a cost-effective highly-efficient snack food packaging system, integrate the Astro with an Ishida CCW-RS weigher. This smooth integration of weighing and bagmaking functions can be further improved with a direct mounting of the weigher to the bagmaker that reduces support steel costs and increases available floorspace in the packaging room.
|Our light-weight one-piece plastic hood covers the top of any multi-head weigher.|
"We are very happy with the performance of these new systems," reports Rolando Benevidez, Maintenance Manager at Golden Flake in Birmingham, AL. "The hoods are preventing product cross-contamination and allergen concerns with the dust, and are also reducing our clean-up time and costs. In addition," he reports, "the hoods have significantly reduced strong odors from seasonings like dill and salt and vinegar, which were very unpleasant to employees working in the packaging area."
The new hood arrangement for on-machine
seasoning systems mounts at the end of the Revolution tumble drum and shrouds the area directly above the multihead weigher's center dispersion cone, preventing
the spread of dust in the packaging room.
The lightweight single-piece hood can be pivoted open or
easily removed without tools
for fast and thorough
cleaning and inspection.
