With Ishida X-ray systems, Ishida checkweighers, and CEIA metal detectors, we've got the inspection system to maximize
the performance of your food
Sharpen your focus on product safety and quality with inspection systems from Heat and Control!
With CEIA metal detectors and Ishida X-ray systems you can identify metal, bone, plastic and other contaminants in product flow or packages. We'll help you choose the best system for your products, or combine both for the best detection system possible!
And to eliminate costly giveaway, and reduce customer complaints, Ishida checkweighers accurately verify the weight, count or completeness of your products before they reach final distribution.
As independent machines, or combined as integrated components of complete processing and packaging lines, our inspection systems will improve the effectiveness of your quality control program.
X-ray inspection assures safety
at Azuma Foods
Azuma Foods, an international supplier of quality frozen seafood, has expanded its commitment to product safety by installing Ishida X-ray Inspection Systems that detect and reject packages containing harmful contaminants.
Ishida X-ray system rejects product containing stone, shell, glass, metals and other contaminants.
With the ability to safely identify shell, bone and stone fragments that naturally occur in their products, as well as foreign materials such as metal and glass, the Ishida X-ray equipment is preventing distribution of contaminated products to retailers.
According to Takashi Miyamoto, Factory Manager at the Azuma Foods (Canada) Inc. processing plant in Richmond, British Columbia, "More
and more international customers are urging or requiring use of such a system in food processing establishments. We investigated X-ray technology and are now using it to help produce an even safer product."
Azuma's facility in Japan was already using Ishida X-ray equipment, but to confirm this preference for their plant in Canada, the company initiated comparisons with systems from two other manufacturers. After a field trial in production conditions, Azuma chose Ishida.
"The compact size of Ishida's unit, its ability to consistently detect very small pieces of foreign material, and the customer service from Heat and Control were the main points in our decision," explains Miyamoto.
X-ray inspection as part of your quality control program can reduce operating costs and prevent contamination problems before they become a costly liability. For more information about Ishida X-ray systems, contact Heat and Control.
Expand your pellet snack business
Our new HeatWave fryer for pellet snacks is the ideal solution for batch processors who want to expand business with a
low-cost continuous frying system.
Compact size also makes this HeatWave fryer ideal for pilot plant use.
HeatWave delivers the most advanced technology for continuous fry-popping of low capacities of pellets. Instead of submerging them, HeatWave expands the pellets using multiple curtains of oil, operating with a dramatically lower oil volume
than conventional fryers.
The benefits? Rapid oil turnover, reduced operating costs, and product with fresher flavor and superior texture.
HeatWave's clean design features rugged stainless steel construction, a strainer basket to remove large particles and maintain cooking oil quality, and a lift-off hood for easy cleaning access. The fryer's compact frame saves floor space in the manufacturing area, and the
easy-to-operate control panel ships pre-wired and mounted to the fryer to reduce installation time and costs.
To compliment our new economical HeatWave pellet fryer, we've designed a new pellet feeder, centrifugal oil removal system, and seasoning applicator, and you can complete your line with our product handling, packaging and inspection equipment.
