Easily detects metal, glass, dense plastics and other contaminants in packaged food. It can also analyze an x-ray image to estimate weight or fill and count or assure that objects are inside a packaged item.  The system’s highly sensitive detectors are available in multiple resolutions (0.8/0.4mm), and its suite of algorithms is designed to find small contaminants in complex images with few, if any, false rejects. A low-power x-ray source (85W) reduces the system’s shielding requirements while easily penetrating typical items under inspection. Meets IP65 requirements for dust and washdown and operates over a wide 5° to 40° C temperature range.
