To enable food manufacturers with limited factory floor space to comply with food safety standards and reduce energy consumption, Mettler Toledo has developed a shorter version of its X33 series of X-ray systems.
Unlike its longer bigger counterpart, the system does not come with pre-installed guards, minimising the machine’s footprint during integration. After installation, guards can be easily constructed around the detector apertures and over existing conveyors without increasing the system’s size.
The X-ray series features a 20 Watt X-ray generator rather than the 100 Watt generator used in traditional X-ray systems. Under typical operating conditions, the series consumes 20 percent less energy, reducing production costs.
