Machines locate contaminants

X-ray inspection and metal detection ensure only good product ships.

I

t becomes a bad day when a consumer detects a metal fragment or other contaminant in a product. Depending on the level and scope of the contamination, foreign material can cause illness, injury or even death, spawn a costly recall and damage brand reputation, perhaps irreparably. To minimize the risks, many firms install metal detectors and/or x-ray inspection systems. Current generation systems are more sensitive and efficient than ever and provide confidence that no flawed product goes out the door. The Ishida IX-EN-4093 x-ray detector from Heat and Control (Booth C-1623) balances sensitivity with minimal operating costs. This versatile machine handles a wider range of applications and easily adapts to any inspection scenario. Proven sensing technology provides one of the industry’s best ROIs. Product on the conveyor is irradiated with x-rays and images are received by the line sensor. Multi-level image processing software detects small nonmetallic contaminants (e.g., bone, glass, shell, plastic) and verifies weight and missing or defective product. Ishida’s patented Genetic Algorithm (GA) image-processing technology further enhances detection sensitivity. Many typical GA settings reside on the machine, but settings also can be customized. Up to two GA settings can exist at the same time. For metallic contamination, the CEIA THS/MS21 metal detector achieves the highest sensitivity by applying a broad spectrum of frequencies simultaneously and continuously. Unlike other multi-frequency detectors, which apply frequencies one-at-a-time, CEIA’s continuous inspection process accurately differentiates between metal contaminants and product effects without reducing sensitivity. By recognizing the different frequency response of conductive products and metals, this technology cancels product effect and maintains high-performance levels for all types of metal contaminants, both magnetic and non-magnetic. An autolearn function equates to the repetition of hundreds of conventional transits. It explores the whole spectrum of available frequency bands in order to determine the best operating conditions for optimum performance. For more information, visit www.heatandcontrol.com. SD
