X-Ray Inspection of Bulk Whole Potatoes

Potatoes.jpg

The Canadian crop sabotage crisis first arose when an undisclosed number of needles were found in potatoes. Fortunately, manufacturers can use x-ray technology to inspect whole potatoes for contaminants such as golf balls, rocks, stones and needles at the beginning of the production line before further processing to guarantee safety and quality.

The Eagle™ Pack 720 PRO with dual energy MDX technology is the ideal solution to inspect bulk whole potatoes. It comes equipped with SimulTask™ PRO, our proprietary image analysis software, which uses advanced algorithms and regional contrasts to provide high-resolution analyzing, reliably identifying small needles, golf balls and other foreign contaminants as well as superior hollow heart detection.
