Thermo Fisher Scientific, Minneapolis, developed the Thermo Scientific Xpert Heavy Duty (HD) X-ray Inspection System, which enables food manufacturers with difficult applications to easily detect a wide range of physical contaminants in large packages and dense, heavy products like cheese blocks, boxes containing various meat products and more.

The Thermo Scientific Xpert Heavy Duty (HD) X-ray Inspection System boasts 900W of x-ray power, and can accommodate big cases, boxes, bags and trays. The trapezoidal, top down x-ray beam is 770 mm wide at the belt and 525 mm wide at the 300 mm aperture height. It features an enhanced mechanical design that withstands daily washdown and a water-cooled ceramic x-ray tube for long life.

Additional benefits include:

  • Three inspection widths to optimize price and system size.
  • External water chiller for cooling the x-ray tube.
  • Easy-to-use software.
