X-ray spots foreign matter in packaged food

Supplier News

THE latest x-ray inspection system from Anritsu offers high detection sensitivity of foreign material in packaged food down to just 0.4mm diameter.

With a small footprint, the new machine can detect non-metallic contaminants such as bone, shell, stone, glass, rubber and plastic, as well as those objects picked up by normal metal detectors. The machine is unaffected by aluminium foil packaging, the salinity or temperature of the product, thus suiting a variety of applications, according to Rob Lawrence, general manager of agents Walls Machinery.

“Simple operation and set-up, as well as easy-cleaning, are key features of the system. An interactive system utilising a user-friendly Windows Operating System-based touch panel, enables easy operation of the machine.

“This machine offers companies peace of mind through high detection sensitivity, reliability and security for the end user,” Lawrence said.

The x-ray system fully conformed to HACCP food safety standards and had been ISO 9001 certified. In the past two years, 600 of the machines had been sold within a variety of industries including; bakery, pharmaceutical, dairy, meat, confectionery and snack foods.

Featuring total safety interlock, the Anritsu x-ray inspection system can be combined with check weighers and reject units. Walls Machinery (03 9521 1665)
