Ensinger, Inc. has developed a family of engineering plastics to overcome the innate invisibility of plastic to screening devices such as x-ray machines and metal detectors.
These devices, along with visual inspection, are commonly used in food production to make sure unwanted particulates do not end up in the food product. Ensinger TECAFORM® UD blue, TECAFORM® FG blue, and HYDEX® 4101 UD blue are being used for kettle scraper blades, impellor parts, and pump valves. Wear and tear can cause these parts to chip or break during a production run. Since these plastic parts are in contact with the food during scraping and mixing, potential for particulates to be incorporated into the finished food product is a risk if not detected. Utilizing the Ensinger detectable product line minimizes this risk.
