Built to inspect pumped and free-flowing applications, such as large-formed hams and gammons, the Loma Systems Pipeline X5 X-ray inspection system has 4-in. couplings and offers higher throughput. The X-ray section is rectangular, which changes the shape of the contents passing through the system, rather than compressing them. Plus, the feed to the X-ray section is on a gradual incline to aid flow and reduce back pressure.
With its concentric diameter pipe, small footprint, and detection performance, the X5 4-in. Pipeline includes all of the standard features of the X5 range, but also has upgrades from the previous-generation model, including a removable cassette for easy cleaning, integrated safety sensors, and a capacitive 8-in. touchscreen, for regulatory compliance through real-time data collection.
Providing easy access to all machine areas and rated to IP69 as standard, the system is designed to be used within a high-care or high-temperature, high-pressure washdown environment. Adept at inspecting fast, free-flowing products, such as jam, chutneys, and even soups or sauces, it has a design that offers detection of all major contaminants, including bone, ceramic, glass, and dense plastics, as well as stainless steel, ferrous, and nonferrous metals.
The X5 Pipeline can be fitted with automatic reject options to reduce waste and increase productivity, and is designed to be compatible with vacuum-filling machine brands, such as Handtmann, Vemag, and Risco.
