The unwanted inclusions in food and beverages pose a threat to both consumer health and the business, including producer image and liability. Detection of such inclusions, in particular metal and glass particles of millimetre size, is an important element of quality control in such industries. Specific solutions usually are limited in their detection range or are investment and space intensive. The presented project investigates a principally new detection method for foreign particles in fluid media of different densities and transparencies. Proof of concept is provided for the important case of glass containers, but the method is applicable to other materials.
