X-RAY INSPECTION CASE STUDIES

X-RAY INSPECTION WHITE PAPERS & ARTICLES

  • Ensuring Food Safety And Brand Protection For Pet Food Products

    The right combination of inspection solutions ensures consistent production of high-quality, contaminant-free pet food products, safeguarding pet safety and protecting brand reputation.

  • Packaged Food Manufacturers Guide To Reducing Total Delivered Cost

    Traditionally, manufacturers have considered Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) in their procurement analysis when purchasing equipment. However, a stronger financial calculation is to quantify how new technology such as product inspection equipment can contribute to reducing the Total Delivered Cost (TDC) of packaged food. This eGuide uses the example of a US-based snack food manufacturer to illustrate how technological advancements in product inspection equipment – notably metal detection and x-ray inspection - can reduce the TDC.

  • Plant-Based Foods: Meeting The Challenges Of Innovation And Food Safety

    Physical contaminant prevention is important and therefore is part of every food safety plan; that is not likely to change. But what is continuously changing is the addition of  new, innovative food products that require consideration of the most appropriate food safety inspection solutions. One of the fastest growing areas of innovation is plant-based proteins. Read more about this trend and how product inspection programs can adapt.

  • What Food Processors Should Know: Metal Detection Vs. X-ray Inspection

    Consumer safety has always been a primary concern for food processors. HACCP (Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Points) has been a methology recommended by the FDA since the 1950s and food producers have always been conscious of their brand’s protection. The recent enactment of the U.S. Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA) has turned the intensity up even higher.

  • Meat Supply Chain: A 'How To’ Guide For BRCGS Audits

    BRC Global Standard for Food Safety Issue 8 emphasizes an end-to-end approach to food safety. Here are some steps to understand and comply with a BRC audit of your current practices and vulnerabilities.

  • Ensuring Food Safety Through The Prevention Of Physical Contamination

    Incidents of physical contaminants in food can have a detrimental impact on brand reputation. This white paper explains different types of physical contamination in food and how to prevent them.

X-RAY INSPECTION PRODUCTS

Delivers up to 50 percent improved sensitivity to detect smaller metal contaminants when inspecting products that are wet, hot, chilled, cooling or packed in metallized film.

Safeline X-ray inspection systems provide superior contamination detection for manufacturers producing food, beverages and pet food products packaged in a wide variety of metal cans. With x-ray inspection solutions for products packaged in cans of all shapes and sizes, applications include canned baby food, ready meals, fish and seafood, meat, tinned fruit and vegetables, pet food and beverages in cans.

Designed for ease-of-use, the X33 offers high detection capabilities, safeguarding brands and consumers, while its low energy consumption reduces the Total Cost of Ownership.

The prerequisite of a successful detection of foreign bodies are X-ray images of the highest quality for food and pharmaceutical manufacturers. It begins with the selection of the optimal X-ray source in combination with the best sensors and high performance image processors running the software. The modular system of WIPOTEC-OCS X-ray technology encompasses air-cooled monoblocks as well as water-cooled metal ceramic tubes with beryllium windows.

For food producing and processing companies that want to inspect open, unpacked, fresh and/or wet products with an X-ray system in order to detect contaminants as early as possible in the production process, S+S/Sesotec provides the new RAYCON H+ X-ray scanner. The hygienic design of this system was developed especially for wet cleaning with high-pressure cleaner and disinfecting foam. The RAYCON H+ hygienic version features polished stainless steel surfaces both inside the detection area and outside. All welding seams are completely smoothed, and all the larger surfaces are slightly inclined so that water and cleaning agents can optimally run off. Control and display elements such as touch monitor, signal lamp, buttons, key switch, and emergency-stop switch all feature a high IP 66/69K rating for use under the most demanding cleaning conditions. Components such as conveyor belt and radiation protection curtains can be easily removed and are thus easy to clean and maintain.  

Eagle’s food x-ray inspection equipment is capable of contamination detection in condiments packaged in tubes, glass jars and plastic containers.
