H1 lubricants: usable in food manufacturing areas. Used as anti-corrosion agents, non-stick seals on tank closures, lubricants for materials located in areas of potential contact with food.
K1 solvents: usable outside the food manufacturing areas (the vapours must not enter the manufacturing area) to degrease materials (e.g. conveyor rollers, other mechanical maintenance, etc.) used in manufacturing areas.
A1 cleaners: usable in food manufacturing areas. Usable as general cleaning detergent on all surfaces. A rinse with drinking water is necessary after use.
The presence of foreign bodies in food is the primary cause of consumer complaints that can lead to the recall of all products.
The first step in HACCP, BRC Review 8 and IFS control methods is to identify these possible and dangerous (exogenous) foreign bodies, who may cause an illness or injury due to lack of control (Art 14 of the EC Regulation 178/2002 amended in 2003, 2006, 2008, 2009, 2014, 2017 and replaced by EU Regulation 2019/1243 of the European Parliament and of the Council of June 20, 2019)).
Every solid body must therefore be easily detectable, either by visual control for regional craftsmen or by industrial vision in large companies: X-rays, HSI hyperspectral imaging systems, 2D and 3D optical vision, colour contrast detectors, opencv Python software application, based on the hue, saturation and brightness (HSB) colour perception.
The absence of blue foods makes this colour the standard for detection.
iBiotec manufactured NSF products allow this detection. All removable bodies, capsules, caps, covers, diffusers, nozzles, extenders with risk, are blue and detectable.
