Eagle Product Inspection: X-ray inspection for poultry

Eagle’s new RMI 400 x-ray machine for poultry features a new conveyor system designed to incline at a gradual angle on the infeed and discharge of the RMI 400, allowing for a curtain-less tunnel to be created.

This prevents the pathway of radiation from the machine from an operator safety perspective and means that only the conveyor belt will make contact with the product – a plus from a cleaning and hygiene perspective.

The RMI 400 has been designed using NAMI construction standards and complies with IP69 ingress protection standards. Unobstructed sightlines, open and contoured surfaces minimize potential material harborage areas, while ensuring fast and convenient visual inspection. The entire machine can be disassembled by a single person in a matter of minutes for thorough sanitation and quick reassembly to maximize production uptime.

In addition, the RMI 400 is safe to own and operate, as it is designed to safe electrical and mechanical machine standards for Category 3 (EN954), PLd (EN13849) operation. A hazard based risk assessment compliant with ISO 12100:2010 is also available. This attention to detail and safety documentation is vital, as it means that processors do not have to gain them independently, saving considerable time and effort.
