QC Measurements for Liquid Food Products and Packaging 8/9/2009
Production quality and uniformity in food processing and its subsequent packaging is closely related to good Quality Control (QC) during the manufacturing process. In order to achieve high quality merchandise with minimal production losses, good process control and monitoring is critical. This is true for production of both the food product itself, the packaging, and of course for putting the former inside the latter efficiently. Laboratory and on-line systems are capable of delivering solutions for QC monitoring, and in cases where extra information (related sometimes to product development, and not to QC) about the flow properties are unnecessary, an on-line option can be the most useful.
