EIT International is an industry leader in the development and supply of environmentally friendly preventative controls and detection systems for the liquid food processing, nutraceutical, pharma-medical and petrochemical industries.
Food production managers are relied upon to make a critical decision every day: whether to start production or not. The fundamental worry is the hygiene of the facility. Every hour production is stalled for cleaning and potential revenue is lost. However, if production is conducted in piping or a surface that hasn’t been adequately cleaned, the risk of contamination and costly recalls increases dramatically.
EIT International’s BactiScope™™ inspection cameras give you the freedom to inspect and investigate areas that would normally be inaccessible. Essentially, BactiScope™™ is a miniature camera, or probe, on a flexible cable that can be maneuverer into awkward areas such as piping or behind hard to get too cabinets. They then transmit a video feed via high energy area and camera head that allows you to see a close-up, real time view of inspection areas.
Food processors have a common problem in detecting bacteria and bio films in piping or inaccessible areas that could contaminate the end product. There are two camera heads supplied with BactiScope™, a 40mm diameter head for 60mm and above pipe diameters, and a 28mm diameter for smaller bore pipes and hard to get too spaces.
With BactiScope™ unique wave alternating UV system, BactiScope™ enables food processors to immediately isolate Biofilms, mould and bacteria such as salmonella and E.coli and many other contaminants are easily located and identified with BactiScope™ which makes the remediation job much faster and therefore more cost effective.
These contaminants are often undetectable using other methods such as white light and UV lamps. With BactiScope™ you can light up the entire internal surface of piping and get an immediate result, so within seconds you can pick things up that would not normally be identified using white or UV lighting.
Next generation BactiScope™ will include video monitor for scan capture, date time stamp, pass/fail stamp and validating scans against known areas of contamination. BactiScope™ 2 will support on-line validation system that will upload to existing internal quality process for external audit.
