The all-hydraulic NuTEC 760H was designed to reduce downtime, minimize maintenance and lower repair costs. The 760H provides accurate weights, minimum leakage and rapid changeover while processing the toughest, hard to form products.
The new Mettler Toledo X37 X-ray inspection system series was developed specifically to deliver efficient, cost-effective production line X-ray inspection of products in vertical packaging such as bottles, cartons, cans and canisters. The X37 system provides a highly adaptable solution that provides inspection of individual situations by offering a wide range of features. The new system also features higher-sensitivity sensors, which require lower 20W X-ray generator power consumption to complete its inspections. This eliminates the need for active cooling of the generator and reduces both Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) and unit size.

The modular orbital cleaner OC200 rotates around the horizontal and vertical axis. The OC200 can be equipped with two, three or four nozzles of different length and diameter. The internal profiling of the nozzles creates a high impact jet, which ensures intensive cleaning of the inner surface of the tank or container. The orbital cleaner can be operated at pressures ranging from 4 to 10 bar. It covers a wide range of tank sizes with its variance in terms of the number of nozzles, variable nozzle diameters, lengths and rotation speeds. Thanks to its powerful jets, it can clean tanks with a diameter of up to 36 metres.
The Refrigerated Foods Association (RFA) has announced the release of an updated Shelf Life Protocol, available now to both members and non-members. The RFA Standardized Protocol for Determining Shelf Life of Refrigerated Foods was originally developed in 2002 and subsequently revised in 2009. The purpose of the standardized protocol was to enable individual manufacturers, and/or their customers if they so desired, to determine their product shelf life and compare their stated shelf life with the shelf life of similar products produced by other manufacturers.
