Sparc Systems Upgrades Cerberus to 350ppm Speed

The Cerberus Combination Metal Detector and Checkweigher from Sparc Systems has received a recent update and the company is claiming the title as the fastest food inspection machines on the market today. Capable of checking for metal contaminants, checkweighing and rejecting out of tolerance packs simultaneously at speeds exceeding 200 packs per minute, Sparc recently created a special version for a UK dietary weight company that accurately inspects a record 350 ppm.

Specifically designed to meet global food safety standards in high care production environments and drive down production costs, the Cerberus by far exceeds manufacturers’ inspection expectations of the conventional 120 to 150 ppm. Delivering repeatable brand protection and fast rejection, a standard off-the-shelf Cerberus easily inspects up to 200 out-of-tolerance or contaminated packs per minute. However, Sparc has, with some special adaptations reached a reliable 350 ppm – close to six packs every second.

A fully-integrated unit, the Cerberus comprises a sensitive metal detector to identify ferrous and non-ferrous particles down to 1.5mm, and stainless steel down to 2.0mm in packs weighing up to 3kg. An XL version is available to inspect products weighing up to 6kg and the size of tinned bread.

European Sales Manager Charlie Graham reiterates: “Designed, engineered and constructed to the highest engineering standards, no other food inspection machine in the world comes close to the performance and sensitivity of our Cerberus Combi systems.”

The impact of machinery downtime alone costs British manufacturers more than GBP180bn every year. Each time a machine is out of action, manufacturers lose, on average, GBP12,042. This equates to GBP60,210 every year, with some of the larger companies losing over half a million per annum, suggests a recent report by Oneserve. Given current volatile market fluctuations and rising input costs squeezing already fragile margins, Sparc Systems believes the reliable Cerberus can help to drive out these unplanned costs, increase output and maintain productivity.
