INSPX introduces the ScanTrac Fermeta Trio, a new range of triple beam X-Ray pipeline inspection systems designed to achieve 60% improvement in the detection of chicken bones. INSPX of California, USA is a leading manufacturer of inspection systems for the food processing, beverage and pharmaceutical industries.

The three-month trial compared the triple beam X-Ray systems to their traditional upstream single beam systems.

Being small and asymmetric in shape, bones in meat products present several inspection challenges to food processors. The ScanTrac Fermeta Trio 4” pipeline inspection system uses a triple X-Ray architecture that applies multiple dimensions to detect any foreign material. The systems are capable of speeds of up to 1,890L of product per minute.

INSPX offers a range of X-Ray inspection solutions that can detect foreign objects in meat products, including metal objects, fillings, particles, shards of glass, stones, bone and rubber or low-contrast images such as plastics in powders.

The X-ray inspection systems are suitable for the inspection of metal cans and trays, glass bottles and jars, plastic bottles and containers, boxes and cartons, pouches, trays and bagged products, and materials in pipes.

Key capabilities of the INSPX X-Ray inspection systems include package inspection for density, fill level and fill volume; contamination inspection; missing components and void detection; out of conformance containers (damaged, dented or upside down); and checkweighing.

INSPX is represented in Oceania by HBM Packaging & Plastics Technologies .
