Thermo Fisher: X-Ray System

Thermo Fisher Scientific has upgraded it Thermo Scientific Xpert C400 x-ray system for detecting metals and other foreign objects in food. The upgrades in include an x-ray source with twice the power of the original model, compact sanitary drum motors and shorter line configurations.

The system is suitable for thicker, denser product and/or higher speed production. The new capability enhances the unit’s inspection sensitivity to help food processors meet stringent foreign object detection goals. It can be used for challenging wet, semi-frozen products, as well as metallised packaging structures that do not lend themselves to metal detection.

The drum is designed to improve safety and performance, minimise maintenance requirements and simplify sanitation by enclosing all moving parts. Because the drum motor is part of the conveyor framework, the unit takes up less floor space.
