Targets bulk ingredients

Maximum speed of 80 m/min.


194_Thermo-Fisher-Scientific-Xpert-bulk-X-ray-systemThermo Fisher Scientific’s Xpert B400 and B600 bulk x-ray systems provide food processors with a new and more thorough way to address potential contaminants in bulk food ingredients.

The bulk flow conveyor belts widths, available in 400 and 600 mm versions, run at a maximum speed of 80 m/min. to handle a range of bulk flow products. They detect foreign objects such as seeds, nuts, fruits and vegetables.

The platform is easy-to-use, doesn’t limit throughput and is sensitive to metallic, as well as non-metallic contaminants such as rocks, glass, plastic and rubber. Typical detection sensitivities are 1 to 1.5 mm for metals and 3 to 4 mm for glass and rocks.

They’re outfitted with front-, back- or side-slotted bulk flow input funnel. An adjustable metering device facilitates consistent product level to optimize detection, while multilane inspection software minimizes rejected material. High resolution sensors and high power X-ray sources maximize sensitivity.

Thermo Scientific is a manufacturer of analytical equipment based in Minneapolis.
