As food and pharmaceutical manufacturers strive to ensure maximum efficiency on their processing lines to maintain competitiveness, the X36 Series from Mettler-Toledo Safeline X-ray can help. This series of adaptable x-ray inspection systems uses the most advanced imaging technology on the market to provide high-detection sensitivity appropriate to a broad range of packaged applications. Systems are designed to consistently detect and remove miniscule contaminants, whilst simultaneously performing product integrity checks, from checking the mass of complex products to the seal integrity on single or multi-lane applications, without compromising throughput rate and process efficiency.
With a choice of detector diodes, 0.8mm or 0.4mm, generator sizes, and detector width options, systems can be customised specifically to the nature and format of the packaged products scanned, ensuring quality and safety at all times whilst future-proofing the initial technology investment. For example, the 0.8mm detector used in conjunction with a 20W generator is up to five times more sensitive to x-ray than standard systems. The 0.8mm diode system can also be combined with a 100W or 420W generator to achieve the most efficient set-up for processing lines. Food and pharmaceutical manufacturers also have the option of tailoring a 0.4mm detector diode with either a 100W or 420W generator.
The X36 Series offers manufacturers the flexibility to analyse the overall mass of a packaged product and individual masses within various areas or compartments, and communicate this information to the filling machine to maintain portion control and minimise waste. The x-ray systems are available in two lengths – 2.1m and 1.2m and with a choice of multiple widths to suit individual applications. Furthermore, when equipped with a low power generator, the machine doesn’t require additional cooling or air conditioning, thereby reducing power consumption, energy costs and overall total cost of ownership (TCO).
The X36 offers a range of fully-incorporated reject mechanisms, including reject bins, which capture contaminated…
