Thermo Fisher Scientific is in the business of keeping food and beverage products safe, which includes helping manufacturers prevent product tampering. With recent reports of deliberate food tampering and contamination in Australia, technologies such as X-ray machines, metal detectors and scanners can help keep producers and consumers safe.
These technologies have been adopted for tampering prevention as well as for brand protection such as checking final fill in prepackaged foods and avoiding accidental contaminates including glass, rocks and plastics.
Businesses can reduce product effect and costly waste caused by false rejects with the Thermo Scientific Sentinel 5000 Multiscan Metal Detector. Metal detection systems provide reliable, cost-effective protection from even the smallest metal contaminants found anywhere in a food production process. The 5-frequency Sentinel metal detector provides unmatched sensitivity and the highest probability of detection.
Thermo Scientific metal detectors are reliable and can also help improve operational efficiency and eliminate expensive downtime, service costs and repair bills. Businesses can feel confident that Thermo Scientific metal detectors are meeting the food industry’s toughest requirements.
X-ray inspection systems are also helpful in providing protection from metal, glass, stone, bone and other dense foreign objects for almost any type of packaged, bulk, or piped product. Entry-level Thermo Scientific NextGuard X-ray Detection Systems are ideal for customers stepping up from metal detection to X-ray inspection. Designed for a wide variety of food applications, NextGuard systems offer enhanced capabilities to inspect packaged products for missing pieces or components, under and over-fills, and other quality problems with customisable vision software. Both the C330 and C500 models are easy-to-use, and cost effective.
The Thermo Scientific Xpert Bulk X-ray Inspection System finds contaminants such as metal, rock, plastic and glass and removes them prior to further processing – providing instant cost savings.
The Thermo Scientific Xpert Sideshoot X-ray Inspection System is a high speed, high performance horizontal X-ray beam system that provides single beam X-ray inspection for tall, upright packages. It includes software specifically tailored to detect objects in all regions of cans and bottles.
The Thermo Scientific Xpert C X-ray Inspection System optimises detection probability and sensitivity. Xpert C systems offer high performance conveyor and sideshoot inspection for large, dense products, or high speed production and patented dual beam, dual detector systems for food and pharma glass in glass detection.
