X-ray inspection system detects contaminants in glass packaging
METTLER TOLEDO Safeline, Tampa, Fla., introduced the R50G glass x-ray inspection system, which detects a wide range of dense contaminants within products packaged in glass containers, including metal, mineral stone, calcified bone, high-density plastic and rubber compounds and even glass within glass, irrespective of their shape, size or location within the bottles and jars.
The R50G x-ray system was designed specifically to provide complete glass container inspection by reducing blind spots in the base, sidewalls and neck of the container. The R50G system incorporates an angled x-ray beam that shoots through the base, maximizing detection sensitivity. The system also simultaneously inspects through the sidewalls of glass containers, enabling manufacturers to inspect the complete contents.
The R50G system also provides accurate full-height fill level checks and is capable of optimizing production line efficiency by allowing containers to run while touching, without gaps, enabling high throughputs of up to 1,200 containers per minute.
The R50G x-ray inspection system is ideal for condiments and sauces, fish and seafood, fruit and vegetables, ready meals, meat, poultry, dairy and beverages.
