Xray Food Inspection Explained. Completely different from the medical radiation x-ray systems.
X-rays are used for many different purposes and it’s important not to confuse those used for food inspection with radioactive materials, such as uranium. Radioactive materials are physical sources of radiation, which emit radiation continuously and can’t be switched off. By contrast, X-rays used for food inspection can be switched on and off, like light from a bulb. When the electricity supply to the X-ray system is switched off, the flow of X-rays ceases instantaneously.
In addition the amount of radiation omitted is minute, even if you stood under one of these units it would not pose any threat to health, no more x-rays are omitted compared to every day background radiation which is around us at all times. X-Ray food systems are ideal for identifying contaminants including, bone, rubber, plastic and metals, the list is endless. Normally used with checkweighing systems offering you full control over your production line. “Checkweighing Explained”
Checkweighing explained, a brief explanation on checkweighing, uses and how they improve process’s.
The automated Measuring instrument which determines the mass of a package or product, usually as it travels along a conveyor that incorporates a weighing device. The mass of each item is recorded and any that fall outside preset values are rejected automatically.
Bizerba precision checkweighers set the highest standards with regard accuracy and reliability. Multiple variants are available offering different protection types, which include wet cleaning or high IP protection systems ideally used for fresh food. Additionally the systems can be used in combination with inspection systems such as X-ray food systems or metal detection units.

Slicing Energy Bizerba technology – time to shut down the power-guzzlers
Commercial Slicers, Slicing Energy
Slicing machines that keep running throughout the day and energy-intensive PC scales and checkweighers. That are not shut down overnight are no rare thing in the retail trade. At a time when everybody is trying to rein in electricity consumption and make financial savings. This makes no economic sense. In the long term, investments in energy-efficient retail solutions can be as worthwhile as the construction of low-energy buildings or the use of solar power.
Bizerba Commercial Scales, Slicing Energy
PC-based scale systems require a certain amount of time to start up and shut down. Since this phase takes too long in the eyes of some employees. Industrial scales often remain switched on overnight. A problem that can easily be solved on the IT side. Wake-on-LAN, a network-based, time-controlled on-and-off function from Bizerba. Automatically shuts down the scales in the evening and starts them up the following morning shortly before work begins. The timer can conveniently be set from the company headquarters. If maintenance or updates are due at night, the machines can be activated from hibernation by the function for the duration of the operation.
Bizerba Commercial Slicer, Slicing Energy
What’s more, PC scales now use flash-based SSD hard disks instead of power-guzzling mechanical hard disks. They are more robust, start up more quickly and consume less energy. Furthermore, LED background lighting in screens is increasingly taking the place of CCFL technologies, which consume a lot of power.
There is further potential for energy saving in converting devises to alternating current, without having to accept a loss of performance here. Modern slicing machines intelligently adapt their engine performance to the product being sliced. Where the product is hard the performance is scaled up, whilst an easily-sliced product requires less engine power. The full torque is not required and the energy consumption remains low.
Many machines are running idle most of the day, yet consume energy at a rate of 100 percent, regardless of whether they are slicing or not. Current Bizerba devices require around 45 percent less energy than conventional machines. In addition, they barely give off any heat, so the food in the storage area does not heat up as much and stays fresh for longer.

X-ray Inspection System – Uses
Normally used with an in line checkweigher that checks the weight for under fill or over fills, the x-ray inspection system can even identify contamination in tinned or metal packages. Something a metal detector can not do.
Additionally checking for glass, bones, metal, plastics or rubber. Additionally checks for example the filling in cakes or internally into the product itself. To ensure that the items you produce are 100% checked from every conceivable angle including label type. Position and package integrity.
Also consider a vision inspection system that will check above and below the packages that pass through for any visual errors that may have occurred in production that an X-Ray inspection system may not have identified.
Furthermore we offer two alternative types of vision inspection systems depending on the production speed and High IP protection that you may need.

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.
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.
