X-ray inspection system for bottles and jars


  • XRAY SHARK® XS25 GIG provides x-ray inspection for food or non-food products and liquids in bottles or jars
  • Detects high density materials like metal, ceramic, stone, plastic and even glass particles in glass containers
  • Scanning height up to 250 mm, with bent product tunnel
  • Easy operation with autocalibration and clearly arranged functions on 17“ touchscreen
  • XIA software for instant analysis and detection with high accuracy and reliability
  • High speed transversal pusher for glass jars




The XS GIG x-ray system is specially designed for the complicated detection of glass particles in glass or plastic containers. It also detects unwanted foreign objects such as metal, stones, ceramics or plastic with high density in the product. XRAY SHARK® XS25 GIG devices use a scanning hight up to 250 mm.

The hygienic design with protection type IP66 for the product tunnel makes the XS GIG products particularly suitable for all companies and industries that have to ensure high hygiene standards.

Remote control and maintenance of x-ray system XRAY SHARK


Most standard x-ray systems cannot detect glass in food, pharmaceuticals or other non-food products. The XRAY SHARK® XS25 GIG is specially designed for this application and detects glass particles even in hard-to-reach areas of  glass or plastic containers like jars or bottles. Undesirable contaminants such as metal, stone, ceramic, glass or plastic with high density can be detected in the product.

User-friendly operation:

CASSEL x-ray inspection systems have a large 17” color touch screen and intuitive software. Operations are simple and user-friendly. The production staff will not need any special training to work with the XRAY SHARK® XS25 GIG.

Easy cleaning and maintenance:

The hygienic design of the XS GIG makes cleaning and maintenance very easy. All components are clearly structured and can be easily disassembled for cleaning and reassembled just as easily. This leads to minimum downtime for your production line.

Real time detection with colored contamination analysis:

The x-ray inspection systems detect foreign bodies with maximum sensitivity. In real time, contaminated products are detected and can be sorted out quickly and safely. On the large screen of the x-ray inspection device, contaminations are highlighted with colored icons.

Masking functions:

With the innovative XIA3 software system, parts of the product may be hidden. This proves effective for packaged products, where the actual packaging should not be examined for foreign bodies. Unnecessary false rejection of products can be prevented with the masking function.

24 hour non-stop operation:

Thanks to the unique design and high quality components, the non-stop operation, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week is no problem for the XRAY SHARK® XS25 GIG models.

Reliable German safety standards – TÜV-cetificate on demand:

With their ingenious designs, CASSEL x-ray inspection systems offer maximum safety and comfort for daily operations. In compliance with all security devices the radiation leakage level is 3 µSv/h or less. Every unit is extensively tested before delivery.

Ethernet and USB:

Standard CASSEL x-ray devices are delivered with USB and Ethernet interfaces. You can connect our x-ray systems to your network.

Auto storing of inspection data, with time/date stamp:

The XRAY SHARK® XS25 GIG is equipped with an automatic memory function. This allows you to save all quality control data quickly and easily. The data of all tested products can be stored, or you can opt to only store data for contaminated products. All images are saved with a time and date stamp in order to simplify the analysis and verification of data.

Built-in remote maintenance:

Thanks to built-in remote maintenance functions, CASSEL x-ray inspection systems can be set and maintained optimally without the presence of on-site technicians, no matter where your x-ray machine is located. Avoid expensive travel costs and get quick solutions.
