An X-Ray Food Inspection System was recently commissioned for increased integrity of foods being packaged in South Australia.

Port Lincoln Tuna purchased this latest food Inspection System to cater for increased client demand for packaged foods that have been thoroughly inspected by an X-Ray System.

Supplied by Accuweigh’s Port Adelaide branch, the AccuCheck Food Inspection System is a dual lane model capable of inspecting two product lines simultaneously for increased product throughput.

The two product lanes may be of similar or different items as the AccuCheck PD Food Inspection System is fully capable of scanning both lanes at high speed without sacrificing detection accuracy. Port Lincoln Tuna has a variety of Food Inspection Systems installed, including both metal detection and x-ray based systems, to provide cost-effective food inspection to suit the different types of potential contaminants.

Although initially more expensive to purchase, x-ray based Food Inspection Systems can detect a wide range of non-metallic contaminants such as glass, stone and other organic items. Unlike metal detection machines, the scanning performance of x-ray based Food Inspection Systems are not compromised when scanning metal foil packs.

The AccuCheck PD Food X-Ray Inspection Systems are Australian Made and manufactured by Applied Sorting Technologies in Melbourne with Accuweigh™ their exclusive Australian distributor in the food industry. Accuweigh has eight branches across Australia with extensive industry experience in sales and service of Food Inspection Systems.
