Thermo Fisher Scientific: X-ray inspection systems for contaminant detection
Thermo Fisher Scientific’s Xpert™ C400 x-ray inspection systems for contaminant detection and product inspection combines very high sensitivity with durability to meet needs for increased foreign object detection and general inspection.
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.
