Comprehensive product inspection with X-ray systems

Product quality is the number one priority in the food industry. Manufacturers are liable for contamination, and impurities and quality issues can result in a tarnished reputation. Our X-ray inspection systems detect a wide range of contaminants and product defects, protect you against customer complaints and product recalls − and consumers against harm to their health.

X-ray inspection systems detect all contaminants whose density differs significantly from that of the product being inspected, not to mention air bubbles, breakage and other defects. Our X-ray systems designed for inspecting food move your products evenly through the X-ray beam on a conveyor belt.

The detector installed above the conveyor belt converts the radiation into an electrical signal. From this, our special analysis software creates a digital X-ray image, which it examines for contaminants and product defects. Integrated separation systems ensure the reliable removal of impure or defective products.

Through this set-up, Sesotec X-ray inspection systems provide effective protection against customer complaints and recalls. You can rely on our more than 40 years of experience in product inspection!

The benefits of using our X-ray inspection systems

  • Detection of contaminants from 0.3 mm in particle size
  • Outstanding design: hygienic, very quickly accessed and possible to service without tools
  • Hassle-free installation thanks to a modular design
  • They comply with the common food industry standards, such as BRC, IFS and HACCP
  • They provide excellent radiation protection in line with the German X-ray Regulation (Röntgenverordnung − RöV) (< 1 mSv/a)
  • Due to the low radiation energy level for detecting contaminants in food, they can even be used with organic products in accordance with Directive 1999/2/EC
  • Detection of contaminants such as metals, glass, ceramic, stones, raw bones, PVC, Teflon, rubber and glass-fibre-reinforced plastics in food
  • Completeness check, even in closed packaging
  • Detection of lumpy, misshapen or broken products
  • Detection of trapped air in tubes and cans
  • Detection of metal contaminants from non-magnetic stainless steels and non-ferrous metals, even in food packed in aluminium
  • They work at very high speed thanks to innovative analysis software
  • They enable simultaneous inspection of various products, which makes it possible to merge a number of packaging lines into just one inspection system
  • The intuitive user interface ensures a swift overview and extremely easy operation for the user
  • They have an ethernet connection for transmitting data and performing remote maintenance, as well as a USB socket for storing images, backing up products and updating software
  • They have various inlets and outlets for connecting fill-level indicators, external signalling units etc.
