Surprise objects in food — and the disgust, anger, and fear they create — can evolve into viral news faster than you can say “recall!” If the foreign object happens to be broken glass, a hypodermic needle, bone, or stone, the item could have been caught during processing by an X-ray detection system. Here are five things to consider when upgrading from metal detection to X-Ray inspection.
If your business requires you to view large quantities of small packaged goods, you will benefit from the use of x-ray inspection systems. Anritsu offers four models of packaging industry x-ray systems that provide long-term flexibility and are incredibly user-friendly.
Engineered with precision and high-sensitivity detection, our HD systems are the superior choice for food safety inspection but, with so many models to choose from, distinguishing between each can be overwhelming. Are you debating which top x-ray inspection system is right for your processing needs? Here is a digestible overview comparing our new, XR75 advanced long life technology models:
Relative mass is the value which the difference of density between x-ray images of the reference master product and the inspected product is converted into mass. This application note explains the principles of the relative virtual weight measurement, usage, and cautions.
Today’s red meat processor must keep up with the demands of high-volume processing, food safety, and meeting regulation parameters. A combination of solutions including X-Ray, Metal Detection and Checkweighing have become a clear choice in delivering the best solution to meet these challenges.
With high concern about food safety among consumers, food manufactures have implemented various quality control measures.
The customer replaced another ‘brand’ x-ray system with the Anritsu KD7405DWT High accuracy Model with a 0.25mm high resolution detector and 350 watt variable x-ray power.
The products vary in size and the inclusions vary in density. To maximize results, a setting for each SKU or like SKU is set to allow for the software to adjust for variances from potatoes to carrots to broccoli.
Ensuring and maximizing food safety during poultry processing has never been more important. Demanding customers and consumers insist production facilities incorporate the best in production science, technology, and equipment to ensure the safest possible products are being consistently produced. As a result, forward-thinking poultry production facilities are incorporating strategically-placed X-ray detection systems on-line throughout their production facilities.
This application note shows results for a high-speed, flow wrap production line inspecting various types of granola and health bars for contaminants. The standard KD7405AWH with 0.4mm resolution was used.Additional benefits in this application are mass measurement, broken product inspection, dual lane inspection, and possibly “product in seal” detection to eliminate bad flow wrap crimp conditions.
Pipeline inspection provides excellent uniform presentation to control density presentation and maximize detection of low density contaminants. This application note explains special algorithms that have been developed to improve bone detection without sacrificing full contaminant detection.
Almonds were fed through the bulk flow x-ray system in a consistent flow usually using a vibratory conveyor. Results using this technique are very accurate compared to online installations. Quartz stones and standard test sample spheres were introduce on top of, below and inside the product for accuracy testing.
Accuracy and reliability are the two most important factors in food safety. Fortunately, the XR75 Advanced Long Life Technology from Anritsu contains both of these qualities, providing the safest and most efficient way to inspect food products. Setting a new standard for improving product quality and safety, it exceeds the needs of today’s demanding food processing industry through all of the following
Food and pharmaceutical processing plants use food metal detectors when they turn out quality, safe products. The production line is a fast-moving process, and both ferrous and non-ferrous metal may contaminate a run. As you know, this can be disastrous, with the result of the loss of an entire run of product. It can even shut down your whole operation, not to mention the health hazards if the batch is released without proper inspection. That is why Anritsu has developed the Dual Wave H Contamination Detector.
Anrtisu is known the world-over for designing and manufacturing exceptional food inspection technology that makes production lines safer and more efficient.
Improve efficiency and effectiveness of your quality control system with new QuiCCA software from Anritsu. QuiCCA is the fully automated quality control and quality management software you need to more productively monitor your manufacturing process. From past logs to current processes to future problems, the fully automated software works with your food inspection equipment to support all aspects of production.
When you open a package of meat or use pharmaceutical products, you count on your purchase to be safe and free of contamination. Thanks to the advanced equipment most manufacturers use today, it’s easy to take the quality and safety of food, medicine, and other items produced on assembly lines for granted. But how are these products checked for quality, and how do companies know they’re safe for consumption before sending them off to supermarkets and pharmacies? The answer lies in state-of-the-art food inspection technology.
Here is some basic information on a less-than-popular piece of machinery that everybody still depends on: The Rejector System.
Physical contaminant detection technologies, such as X-Ray inspection, help manufacturers provide consumers with the safest food available. This article provides insight into physical contaminant detection and explains why X-Ray technology is a solution for eliminating physical contaminant concerns.
