X-Ray Inspection Systems

Bizerba X-Ray Inspection Systems. These systems miss nothing, fully automatic inspection system that detectors all errors or defects in food products. The systems will identify irregular any no conformed items. Foreign objects and will even identify missing or misshaped items.

X-Ray Inspection Systems – Nothing is Missed

Due to the chemical components and density, the x-ray inspection systems will identify quickly and inferior products on the line, rejecting them immediately. Consider the Bizerba inspection system XRE-2.  A number of detection’s can be made during the process from raw bones, metals, plastics, glass, ceramics and stones. Nothing is missed.

X-Ray Inspection Systems XRE_2
X-Ray Inspection Systems XRE-2

Detection’s are made in packaged and unpack-aged food. Extensive testing on products long before the install as part the consultation process. Packaged food for manufactures is at times challenging, normally in the past a simple metal detector was sufficient enough to adhere to the food retail industry strict standards.

X-Ray Inspection Systems – Compliance

Consider nowadays major food retailers demand extremely high quality standards. Not letting anything slip into the supply chain or onto the shelves in the shops. X-Ray inspection systems, now required to meet these high standards.  The flexibility and the various items that are detected make this the preferred detection system.

Used in conjunction with a vision inspection system and an in motion checkweighing system the combination is formidable. Additionally used with statistical and data capture software offering full food trace ability from supply, production and delivery.

X-Ray Inspection Systems – Set Up

The set up would normally be as follows, left to right or right to left. From the filling systems to the packaging system where required then onto the checkweigher. From there it would pass though the x-ray inspection systems before travelling to the final check the vision inspection system.

At all times the data is recorded and can be accessed in real time or historical records can be recalled. Each stage will have pushers to reject the items passing through the conveyor or lines. recording monitoring and identifying any trends in the rejection process.

End Of line Inspection Equipment

End of line inspection equipment by Bizerba. As demands increase, So potentially can problems occur during production. As a supplier to the US retail trade, more and more customers are demanding that you have at least one inspection system or end of line inspection equipment in place.

End Of line Inspection Equipment – Minimum Requirements

Additional inspection systems to be used with your inline checkweigher system is now a must. The minimum requirements now are that you have at least one X-Ray Food machine in place. Metal detectors have in the past been the norm, however they are not always able to identify and reject smaller particles of metal or other foreign debris.

Why not watch the latest video on how an X-Ray inspection system could ensure rejection of any defect products in your line.

End Of line Inspection Equipment – With Vision Inspection

A normal setup on a production line would be to have the filling machine, then the packing or seal machine. Then packages at a rate of 400 units per minute will pass through the dynamic checkweigher, for example the CWE Maxx. Then after checking move on through the X-Ray inspection system, all foreign bodies rejected. This can be a Dual lane inspection system so that the production line keeps up with demand.

Then onto the Vision inspection unit, the new SealSecure Vision inspection system. Or the LabelSecure vision inspection system . Checking packages from above and below. Systems will identify leaks in packages. Broken seals and incorrect or badly positioned labels.

X-Ray Food Inspection

X-Ray food inspection, how safe is it? Airline cabin crew and pilots are exposed more than operators of x-ray food evaluation machines. Facts and this are summarised in a paper a pioneer of merchandise evaluation technologies including inline analysis and x-ray, from the Bizerba Product Inspection team. The business hopes that this paper will relieve any reservations about the security of food also this has been about the safety of operators of machines using an x-ray food inspection machine. The paper, titled “How Safe is the X-ray Inspection of Food? , clarifies the nature of x-ray when compared with a substance that is radioactive, and points out that the degree of radiation used for x-ray food inspection from the food business is low.

The paper explains the nature of x-ray examination equipment structure, which in most cases goes beyond the standards. X-ray evaluation of food was adopted by increasing numbers of food makers due to its efficacy and accuracy in detecting foreign bodies inside food products such as stones and glass. The proof shows that food that’s good before an  x-ray is as good and just as tasty afterwards. Also, operators working with x-ray food inspection or examination systems are protected by laws and by expert equipment design.

 X-Ray Food Inspection- Safety

In conclusion, consumers and traders have nothing to be concerned about. To start with, it’s significant to comprehend the distinction between x-ray and radioactivity. While x-ray is a form of electromagnetic radiation, they’re electrically generated, and may be switched on and off. In every day activity, every person on Earth is subjected to several forms of radiation, known as background radiation. The International System of Units for radiation dose is that the Sievert, however occupational exposure levels are usually so low that millisieverts and microsieverts are generally utilised. The average human receives about 2, 400 Sv of background radiation in a year, that generally far exceeds that of the radiation exposure received from an x-ray examination system in the food industry.

X-Ray Food Inspection – Normal exposure

In comparison, pilots and cabin crew, who spend more time in altitude, are subjected to greater levels of cosmic radiation, as there’s less of  the Earth’s atmosphere to filter it out when flying, together with frequent flyers absorbing around 4, 400 Sv annually. X-ray food inspection doesn’t cause the meals to become radioactive, just as an individual doesn’t become radioactive after having a chest x-ray.
