The X38 x-ray system and L-Series metal detector provide food manufacturers with the right solution to suit their individual pumped applications such as liquids, slurries and semi-solids.

Pumped Food Applications
Products inspected on pumped food production lines can vary greatly, with this so does the range of contaminants within the products, providing food manufacturers with a number of contamination detection challenges. Typical pumped products include processed meat and poultry, fruit and vegetables, jams / preserves, purees, soups, ice creams and condiments.

Contamination Detection
Food safety is paramount to manufacturers and the highest levels of contamination detection in pumped foods are expected. Detection of small contaminants such as metal filings, mineral stone, calcified bone and glass shards can be challenging.

Safeline Inspection Solutions for Pumped Foods
The X38 x-ray pipeline inspection system provides outstanding detection capabilities with bespoke software algorithms to ensure precise removal of contaminated product with minimal product waste. The X38 offers reliable detection of metal, glass, calcified bone, mineral stone and dense plastic and rubber compounds.

The L-Series metal detector pipeline inspection system provides advanced detection coil technology and digital signal processing, delivering unparalleled levels of in-process detection sensitivity to all metal types.

Hygienic Design
Pumped production lines often present challenges to manufacturers when it comes to hygiene. The X38 x-ray system and L-Series metal detectors are specifically designed with high IP (IP69) ratings to support and facilitate harsh wash-down environments.

Flexible design options ensure that Safeline's pumped inspection systems can be customised and easily integrated into an existing food production line, increasing uptime and Operational Equipment Effectiveness (OEE).

Connectivity and advanced data collection solutions assist manufacturers with collation and storage of production data to support compliance and proof of due diligence. Both pumped food inspection solutions offer multiple connectivity options to enable real time data collection and transfer.
