Contamination during the manufacturing process of food and beverages isn't always restricted to metal particles. Glass, ceramics, plastics, stones and other items can also pose a major threat to product and machine safety. Industrial X-ray inspection equipment is designed to detect all types of unwanted physical contaminants.
CASSEL Inspection offers a range of specialized X-ray inspection units suitable for bulk flow products, glass-in-glass inspection, and liquid or paste pipeline products. And we lead the industry when it comes to customization options.
In the United States, the USDA and the FDA both require food and beverage manufacturers to meet strict product quality standards that require diligent inspection.
Metal detectors can identify particles of ferrous and non-ferrous metals as well as stainless steel. However, in the food industry, packaging such as metalized film used for potato chip bags and candy wrappers or prepared food in foil trays can trigger false alerts in metal detectors.
And there are multiple other potential contaminants that are unsuitable for metal detectors. For example, products from farms may contain rocks or glass. X-ray inspection augments metal detectors to assure the discovery of all types of contaminants.
X-ray inspection machine designed for the food and beverage industry can detect:
X-ray inspection machines are not able to detect contaminants that can float on water, such as hair, ice, insects, nylon or rubber.
Using dual beam technology, CASSEL Inspection X-ray inspection machines for food and beverage can detect any substance that is significantly different in density from the product being inspected. That includes impurities, air bubbles, breaks, or other defects that can compromise the safety or integrity of a product.
