Food safety during egg production and grading
Es primordial para los productores de huevos garantizar la seguridad de sus huevos. Las clasificadoras de huevos de Moba estÃ¡n diseÃ±adas de tal manera que pueden limpiarse fÃ¡cilmente y equiparse con diversas tecnologÃas que ayudan a minimizar los peligros para la seguridad alimentaria.
In the egg production and grading, Moba has been part of the industry for almost 75 years. What started with the invention of Job Mosterdâs first handpacker, has grown into a global organization with world-leading activities in the egg grading, packing and processing industry. Moba offers a broad portfolio that covers every aspect of the egg process. By using their years of experience and knowledge, Mobaâs team implement the latest technologies that will reap many benefits for their customers. And by listening to them, they know exactly what they expect from their equipment: top-efficiency, food safety and a service team that is always ready to help.
Level up your business with Moba –Â Top-efficiency, food safety and a strong service network
As an egg producer, you want to sell as much of the eggs that arrive at your packing station. After all, the more eggs that are marked as a usable product, the more profit you make. And that is not the only advantage if you take the ecological footprint of your operation into account. By using as much of the eggs, the waste of valuable food is minimized. A win-win situation, but how can you ensure that you get the most out of your eggs?Â
Moba egg graders are designed in such a way that they contribute to top-efficiency, with the focus on optimizing yield by avoiding egg and pack damage and spoilage. All possible, thanks to Mobaâs hidden gems. These are technological highlights that make all the difference. Like Mobaâs unique wide roller concept that avoids egg to egg contact within milliseconds after loading. Or the common speed loading principle that ensures gentle egg loading to minimize cracked eggs. And letâs not forget Mobaâs well-known signature, the individual egg handling. Moba has perfected the functions and possibilities of individual egg grading in every machine generation developed since its invention, from economical smaller graders up to the highest capacity Omnia’s. But how does it exactly work? Once the egg process starts, with the individual egg handling technique, the eggs will not touch each other during the whole process. The egg flow is followed meticulously thanks to Mobaâs smart software, so you know exactly where each egg is.
Top-efficiency also means maximizing the use of your eggs with the help of state-of-the-art detection systems. By implementing the latest technologies even the smallest cracks, blood spots and dirty eggs can be accurately detected by Mobaâs graders. It is even possible to test the shell strength of the egg so weak shelled eggs and strong shelled eggs can be distinguished and separated. Based on this quality information, the software can optimize the grading of different products and minimize losses. The percentage of incoming eggs that make it to a consumer product is often referred to as âTable eggs %â or âGrade A %â.Â Many customers have confirmed that after they switched to a Moba egg grader, a gain of 2% more Grade A eggs was achieved. Sometimes this percentage was even higher !!
Every egg producer keeps a tight schedule. After all, every day all those eggs need to be graded and packed because the next day a whole new load is waiting. The work never stops. So even the smallest problem with your machine can have a great impact on your schedule. That is why it is so important that machine downtime is minimized, and product and pack changes run smoothly. Moba egg graders have product-oriented programming to enable 100% accurate tracking and tracing and to minimize operator actions that can cause errors. With the help of easy-to-adjust packer settings, you can easily change from one product to the next and the automatic run-empty functions ensure quick egg-type changes. Just a few examples of the technological advantages of the Moba egg grader that ensures you get the most out of your business.Â
It is paramount for egg producers to ensure the safety of their eggs. Moba egg graders are designed in such a way that they can be easily cleaned and equipped with various technologies that help minimize food safety hazards. Please note that technology alone can never prevent contamination. Only by combining other good hygiene practices throughout the whole production process from chicken to consumer, as well as cleaning and maintaining the grader regularly, a high level of food safety can be achieved.
There are two aspects important if you want to meet the highest standards of food safety. First of all, the food safety features during production. Moba egg graders have vital equipment above the egg flow, that minimizes the presence of dirt spots that potentially are harmful to the eggs. Think about the Orientator, which removes cracked eggs as early in the process as possible. Or the detection systems that check the shell strength, or remove blood eggs and leakers through the leaker outlet. Or the Multi Outlet, an extra feature of the PX model, specially designed for washer and dryer configurations. The Multi Outlet removes not only leakers but also resend the still dirty eggs to the washer to diminish cross-contamination. By using UV on the double hygienic rollers and the eggs the risk of cross-contamination is also reduced. In the PX models there are even more UV features to ensure a food-safe production like UV on egg-touching parts in the weighing system, on the transfer arms and on the egg-grippers in the track.
Plus, with the help of individual egg handling, 100% tracking and tracing are guaranteed. And what really gives Moba graders the edge over its competitors when it comes to food safety is âMoba Ovoshieldâ. This special addition to industrial plastic parts is made in the Moba factory and applied in all egg-touching packer parts. This additive of silver ions and titanium dioxide is approved by the FDA and EU and works by using nano-technology. The nanoparticles destabilize the cell membranes of any bacteria in contact with the plastic, stops the process of cell division and blocks the enzyme transport between the bacteria and the environment. Adding another important step in keeping the food safety risk to an absolute minimum throughout the grader.
And secondly, Moba equipment is quick and easy to clean. Due to the stainless steel and open construction, the graders are easily accessible. Due to its design, the graders can be foamed and high-pressure cleaned. The Orientator grippers and packer parts, like the receiver, buffer or dropsets, can be cleaned out of place. Depending on the machine line (XF, FT or PX), we have cleaning in place for the infeed rollers, transport carriers in tracks and weighing grippers.
By understanding the needs of the industry, Moba has designed their egg graders to meet the highest standards of hygiene and food safety.
Strong service network that makes all the difference
Your egg grader can only perform at its best if it is in top condition. A crucial aspect that defines how successful your business will be.
