X-Ray Inspection Equipment For Unpackaged Food Products


Purposely designed to inspect a variety of unpackaged food products, Safeline X-ray inspection systems are relied upon by food manufacturers in industries such as meat and poultry, bakery, confectionery, snacks, cereals industries. Typical unwrapped food applications include grains, nuts and raw meat, in addition to formed-style products such as frozen pizzas, dough balls, beef burger patties and chicken nuggets. X-ray machines for food inspection deliver the highest detection sensitivity ensuring accuracy, reliability and ease of operation for all unpackaged applications.

Contamination Detection

Our x-ray detection equipment provides unsurpassed contaminant detection and is capable of finding glass, metal, mineral stone, high density plastic and calcified bone contaminants in loose-flow, bulk and unpackaged food products. Rejecting contaminated products as early as possible in the product process, ideally before they are processed, is cheaper than eliminating the risk of contaminants once products have been processed, portioned and packaged.

Cost Saving

Consideration should be given to the location of Safeline’s X-ray inspection systems for unpackaged products. When placed early in the production line, contaminants can be removed at the source and immediately traced back to the supplier. Catching contaminants early is not just efficient in terms of reduced product waste and cost, as defective product can be reworked; it also helps to prevent damage to processing equipment caused by big contaminants further downstream.

Food Quality Assurance

Installing x-ray inspection systems for unpackaged products at a critical control point (CCP) on the production line ensures contaminated and defective products are removed before further value is added. In addition to offering unsurpassed contamination detection, Safeline X-ray loose-flow equipment performs additional inline quality control inspection for mass measurement and product defects such as shape, holes and edge defects of form-style products such as burger patties
