Mettler-Toledo Safeline X-ray X38

Manufacturers of pumped food products can benefit from high detection sensitivity and improved overall equipment effectiveness (OEE) with the X38 X-ray inspection system from Mettler-Toledo Safeline X-ray.

The single vertical X-ray beam system for pumped food products has a complete set of software algorithms that have been specially developed for piped food products, including meat and poultry, fruit and vegetables, dairy, baby food, syrups, jams and preserves. It offers optimum detection capabilities, particularly for contaminants such as calcified bone, mineral stone, glass shards and metal filings, while allowing the timely and accurate opening of the reject valve, ensuring precise removal of the contaminated product with minimal product waste.

The air conditioner has an IP69 rating that makes it capable of withstanding the high-pressure and high-temperature cleaning applications commonly seen on pumped food lines. The casing also has sloping surfaces and curved edges, which allows water to run off quickly and easily, reducing the need to wipe the machine dry after cleaning and eliminating bacteria traps. These means the frequency of downtime for cleaning can be reduced and in addition the product’s robustness means higher reliability of performance. Both of these facts significantly increase OEE and reduce the total cost of ownership (TCO).

The X-ray system can be easily integrated into production pipelines with flow rates of up to 14 t/h, depending on the diameter of the pipe and the application. It is available with 2.5″, 3″ or 4″ diameter pipes as standard, but can be built with other sizes on request to suit customers’ existing pipework.
