The infographic reveals how a dual-reject system, across multiple lanes will reject non-conforming patties ready for re-work.

The X39 Series has been specifically designed for x-ray inspection of burger patties and other frozen-formed products such as pizzas, fish fingers and chicken nuggets.

Save Costs
This infographic shows how installing the X39 Series x-ray inspection system at a critical control point (CCP) on the production line ensures any contaminated and/or defective products are quickly and effectively rejected.  Removing product from the production process at early stages ensure no further value is added, minimising product waste, saving costs and improving overall productivity.

Maintain High Product Quality
Offering unsurpassed detection of contaminants within burger patties, the infographic illustrates how the X39 is simultaneously capable of performing additional quality control checks. The X39 can inspect for mass, length, width and height measurement, as well as product defects including flakes, holes and dents.

Minimize Product Waste
While conforming patties will be packaged and shipped ready for consumption, the graphic reveals how a multi-nozzle air blast reject system or a failsafe reject flap across multiple lanes will reject non-conforming patties ready for re-work.

Check out the infographic yourself to discover how the re-work process involves substandard patties being ground back down and then re-inspected using a bulk x-ray system. You'll see that while contaminated product is rejected and completely removed from the production process, all other product will go back into the production process.

Satisfaction Guaranteed
The infographic unveils how the re-work process entails ground meat being pumped into the former and pressed into burger patties, before being frozen and subsequently re-inspected by the X39 x-ray system. This helps manufacturers to guarantee customer satisfaction and brand protection by ensuring final products are safe and of the highest quality possible.
