General Food Processing
 
Overview
Food Processing Canty’s range of vision based process instrumentation can be applied to a number of areas within the broad realm of food processing, to optimize the production process, and therefore increase product yield and product quality. Please click on the links in below application list for specific application examples. "
Features

• Remote process monitoring from central control room

• Image analysis - process vessel monitoring (reactor, filter, dryer etc.), particle size, shape & colur (product QC)

• Visual verification of analysis outputs

Application List
 
Centrifuge
Monitoring of centrifuge processing (either a batch or continuous) is done through the use of the Canty Fuseview™ and Fibre Optic Lighting System, providing the operator with light and sight on one vessel connection, saving space on the vessel head, and also ensuring optimum illumination of the area which the operator is viewing. Canty also provide a modular camera light combination unit to provide a remote continuous view of the centrifuge process from the control room. Cantyvision image analysis software allows for cake thickness measurement and cake colour (used to indicate stage of filtration)"

Spray Dryer Fluid Bed Spray Dryer Fluid Bed
Monitoring of spray drying process is done through the use of the Canty Fuseview™ and Fibre Optic Lighting System, providing the operator with light and sight on one vessel connection, saving space on the vessel and also ensuring optimum illumination of the area which the operator is viewing (typcially the area of interest is the spray nozzles to monitor spray angle, check for blockage / ""bearding"". Canty also provide a modular camera light combination unit to provide a remote continuous view of the spray drying process from the control room. Cantyvision image analysis software allows for the measurement of the spray angle as well as automated detection of nozzle blockages."

Color/Black Speck Detection
The final food product may need to be subjected to quality control in order to determine if the prodcut is the correct size and shape, and also that the concentration of discoloured particles is within specification. Canty’s range of image based particle analysis systems provide true size and shape characterisation, with each particle measured under 13 size and shape parameters. Canty’s imaging systems also offer the option of Colour / Black Speck detection within the product. The systems can be run at line through the use of a sweep sampler, or offline as laboratory instruments.

Volume Flow
The final product can transferred to storage / packaging by means of conveyor belt. In order to know the quantity of product produced, it is important to have an accurate volume measurement. Traditionally, volume belt scales are used, but there can be significant time spent on maintenance of this equipment due to the nature of how the measurement is performed. The Canty Volume Flow system is a non contact visual measurement of the product area profile on the end of the conveyor. This area measurement can be combined with the velocity of the belt (separate measurement required) in the operators control system, to provide an accurate volume flow measurement.
