ELK GROVE VILLAGE, Ill.—With today’s processors confronting the on-going challenge of quality issues caused by bone particles and foreign matter in their products, Anritsu’s X-Ray inspection systems—DualX (see photo above) and Pipe-Type—offer solutions to this challenge.
The innovative HD and DualX technology installed in all Anritsu machines has allowed it to become a leader in bone detection technology.
The advanced poultry bone detection technology from Anritsu can detect smaller poultry bones, including lower density fan bones.
The ease of product set-up, system maintenance and overall system operation make Anritsu’s X-ray detection systems the most accurate systems for any facility.
Anritsu offers two different detection solutions depending on your process.
DualX X-Ray Inspection System
The extremely accurate, high speed DualX X-Ray Inspection System utilizes two X-Ray energy signals to simultaneously distinguish between the product and the contaminants. The dual energy signal technology provides an increased sensitivity to poultry bone fragments and allows for bone free poultry processing. The DualX detects calcified bone fragments as small as 2.0mm, and glass, stone, rubber and metal can be detected as small as 0.7mm. This piece of equipment is ideally suited for the stringent quality control requirements of leading poultry plants with its easy set-up, operation, maintenance and cleaning.
Pipe-Type X-Ray Inspection System
The Pipe-Type X-Ray Inspection System heightens contaminant detection in pumpable products like fluids and semi-solid products flowing in a pipe like poultry trim and first-grind meat. This system is the most effective design for detecting bone, glass, stone, rubber and other material as small as 2.0mm in size and stainless steel particles as small as 0.5mm in size. The Pipe-Type X-Ray is capable of processing over 16,000 lbs of product per hour. With the ability to handle up to 100 separate recipes, it is also highly versatile and flexible for tracking different suppliers performance.
“Anritsu has continued to invest the resources to develop the best detection technologies in the industry. A prime example is providing poultry processors with a higher degree of accuracy in detecting bones,” states Anritsu Industrial Solutions USA president Erik Brainard. “We are the only supplier to offer both DualX and pipeline technologies.”
For nearly a half century, Anritsu has been designing and manufacturing inspection equipment for the food, pharmaceutical, cosmetic and industrial packaging and processing applications.
Formed in Japan, Anritsu has expanded its tradition of innovation and reliability to the United States over the past decade. Anritsu Industrial Solutions USA is headquartered in Elk Grove Village, IL. For more information, visit: www.detectionperfection.com.
