The new Xpert Heavy Duty (HD) X-ray inspection system is distributed in Canada by MD Packaging Inc.

Generating 900W of X-Ray power, the new Xpert Heavy Duty (HD) X-ray inspection system from Thermo Fisher Scientific is designed to enable food manufacturers to obtain easy detection of a wide range of physical contaminants in large packages and dense, heavy products like cheese blocks, cases of spice, and boxes containing various meat products.

Distributed in Canada by MD Packaging Inc., it features a large aperture width and height to accommodate big cases, boxes, bags and trays. Morover, the Xpert HD system incorporates a trapezoidal, top-down 770-mm-wide X-Ray beam at the belt, which narrows to 525-mm-wide at the 300-mm aperture height, as well as an enhanced mechanical design to stand up to daily washdowns and a water-cooled ceramic X-ray tube for long service life.

Delivering high penetration of food products in difficult applications to support the highest level of food safety, the Xpert HD offers:

  •  Three inspection widths to optimize price and system size;
  • External water chiller for cooling the X-Ray tube;
  • The same easy-to-use software available on all Thermo Fisher Scientific Xpert conveyor models.
