5 Reasons To Use Bulk Food Inspection Systems

Have you ever contemplated purchasing a bulk product inspection system for your food production process? Read on to discover 5 key benefits of installing a bulk x-ray inspection and/or metal detection system into your food production line.

1.    Outstanding Detection Sensitivity
 
Bulk product inspection equipment is used to inspect a range of fresh/frozen or dried products including; nuts, grains and pulses, extruded snacks, fruits, cereals, vegetables, seafood, minced meat, confectionery and pet foods.

Bulk-flow product inspection systems typically inspect loose product before it is packaged or added as an ingredient to a finished pack.

Sensitivity of detection in loose products inspected on a horizontal conveyer belt with x-ray is usually better than in final sealed packs because the depth of product is typically much less and the texture is more uniform (homogeneous).

When using metal detectors, the aperture can be minimised in vertical inspection processes to maximise detection sensitivity.
