Anritsu X-ray Inspection System has been rated no. 1 by the Danish Meat Association during recent performance tests.
The Danish Meat Association, an organisation renowned as a leading research institute for meat studies, recently conducted performance tests of X-ray inspection systems from six major suppliers, including Anritsu.
The tests evaluated the equipments’ detection performance for small pieces of bone, stainless steel, plastic and glass contaminants in pork products. Initial tests were conducted of systems from the six suppliers and then final stage tests of two suppliers.
The Anritsu KD74 series, which is available from Walls Machinery, was rated no. 1 due to its demonstrated ideal contaminant detection, good stability and ease of operation. The tests results have been released on the website of the Danish Meat Association.
Using advanced sensor technology and unique image processing technology, the Anritsu X-Ray Inspection System can detect extremely small contaminants such as ferrous and non-ferrous materials down to 0.3 mm diameter, as well as non-metallic contaminants including bone, shell, stone, glass, rubber and plastic.
With a high sensitivity for wet product, frozen product and aluminium packed products, the machine is suitable for a variety of applications.
The machine also features a missing product detecting function which detects any missing product in food packaging as well as broken product, while simultaneously checking for contaminants in the food.
The masking function will mask items that should not be detected such as metal clips or containers which are part of the product’s packaging, while at the same time checking for any missing clips which are used to seal products such as sausage and cheese.
The LCD 15“ touch screen provides for easy operation and utilises a user-friendly Windows Operating System, while the unified image monitoring and operation screen captures and magnifies images to detect any finer contaminants in food and product packaging.
Made of clean and hygienic stainless steel for easy cleaning and maintenance, the Anritsu X-ray Inspection System can be used for meat, retort, frozen food, pre-packaged meals and confectionery.
