Flexicon’s bulk transfer system, TIP-TITE, moves material from boxes into a mobile bin with vibratory feeder that services multiple downstream processes.

The machine’s all stainless steel construction allows handling of corrosive materials and/or wash down between runs of contamination-sensitive food, nutraceutical, pharmaceutical and chemical products.

It has separate control systems housed in NEMA 4 or NEMA 4X enclosures for wash down using steam, cleaning solutions and high pressure water—providing manual or automated control of all hydraulic, pneumatic and electrical functions. The system is also offered in carbon steel with durable industrial coatings or with stainless steel material contact surfaces.

The global food safety testing market is projected to grow at a CAGR of 7.4 percent from 2017 to 2024.

The company plans to invest S$85 million (US$62.7 million) over the next five years to increase its advanced manufacturing and applied research and development capabilities in Singapore.

The EHEDG magnetic filter is specially designed for the food industry. The hygienic filter includes a magnet that can be magnetically operated without the need to open the filter housing for cleaning, thus making it suitable for CIP systems.

The filter is constructed of Neodymium magnets that provide more effective separation of very small ferrous particles as small as 15 micrometres, weakly magnetic particles and even iron dust from sticky substances such as chocolate, pastes, powders and fruit juices.

The magnet has a maximum flux density of 11,300 gauss at the bar and removes the specified particles from both liquid and powdered products. The entire system is made of grade 316 stainless steel, is smoothly finished (Ra≤0.4ų) and is EHEDG certified.

Sciex has launched their SWATH data independent acquisition technology for analytical scientists working across all application areas. This offers simultaneous and comprehensive identification and quantification of virtually every detectable compound in a sample, from a single analysis.

The system has unique capabilities for quantitative accuracy, offering exceptionally high reproducibility across multiple samples with wide dynamic range. Importantly, the technology enables the creation of a permanent digital record of quantitative MS/MS data for the entire sample.

The system can be used in food-testing laboratories to survey ingredients and food products for quality and safety, allowing scientists to completely survey samples for every detectable chemical contaminant present while also ensuring rapid, reliable detection of low abundance compounds that are usually masked by dominant compounds in a sample.

Shanghai will launch a new food safety management platform to monitor and track food manufacturing processes and provide food safety information.

When it comes to food safety, kitchen flooring is often overlooked. It is in fact one of the biggest risk factors. Suresh Rebello, regional sector manager, Construction Chemicals Asia Pacific, BASF, discusses a few tips on how to choose an ideal flooring for F&B manufacturers.

The food safety testing market is projected to increase at a CAGR of 8.9 percent from 2017 to 2025, according to market intelligence company Transparency Market Research.

Consumers expect to be provided with concrete details about the foods they buy, enabling them to decide which foods are safe to purchase and consume, according to a study by Tuv Sud.

The global food traceability market is expected to grow at a CAGR rate of 5.56 percent, according to market intelligence agency Research and Markets.
