Removal of Foreign Bodies

Food safety and quality are essential in the manufacturing industry. Therefore, the prevention of foreign bodies and contaminants in food production is a key challenge that must be met.

Challenge: Detection of Foreign Bodies in the Material Stream

To protect consumer health and ensure compliance with stringent safety standards, the detection and removal of foreign objects and contaminants is important. In-line analysis at Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Points (HACCP) and selective removal of defects presents a costly problem.

Solution: Smart Sorting Decisions for Foreign Object Removal with EVK

With decades of experience in sensor-based sorting, EVK is able to detect and efficiently remove hazardous materials from the product stream using real-time, spatially-resolved analysis.
The combination of the powerful EVK HELIOS hyperspectral camera and the advanced EVK SQALAR software offers a solution to address this safety issue. The technology is not only able to reliable classify foreign objects but also to forwards smart sorting commands to the valve control.


Hyperspectral Imaging offers the degree of classification accuracy required for applications in the food industry by directly measuring chemical molecular composition through the absorption of light (spectroscopy).

EVK’s portfolio of sensor-based technology includes hyperspectral cameras and inductive sensor systems that can be used individually or combined with a color camera with sensor fusion to create a high-performance sorting application.
