Capable of detecting metal, glass, dense plastics and other contaminants in packaged food, the Thermo Scientific Xpert C400 X-ray system can also analyze an X-ray image to estimate weight or fill and count or assure that objects are inside a packaged item. The system’s detectors are available in multiple resolutions; its suite of algorithms can find small contaminants in complex images. An 85W X-ray source reduces the system’s shielding requirements. The system meets IP65 requirements for dust and washdown and operates over a 5°C to 40°C temperature range.
