S+S X-ray technology sets the standard for contaminant detection in the meat industry

S+S RAYCON

Comprehensive product inspection for quality assurance

Schönberg, April 2013
For companies in the meat industry it is a given that product quality has highest priority both during production and in retail stores. Raw materials are selected with the utmost care in order to meet internal and external demands for high quality and for perfect hygiene standards.

Independent authorities, e.g. German Agricultural Society or food inspection institutes regularly assess the products of meat processing companies. Good results repeatedly confirm the success of efforts to ensure acceptance and quality of the products. In addition, internal standards and HACCP requirements are continuously reviewed and documented under IFS (International Food Standard).

To meet quality demands, new technologies are used in the production of meat products. X-ray technology currently sets the standard for contaminant detection.

The product inspection systems of the RAYCON range from S+S Separation and Sorting Technology GmbH are equipped with sophisticated, reliable X-ray technology. These X-ray systems meet the high quality demands of the food and packaging industry. When combined with modular conveyors they can be adapted to application specific requirements and local site conditions.

Raycon product inspection systems perform high-precision inline detection of a great variety of contaminants such as magnetic and non-magnetic metals, glass, ceramics, stones, raw bones, and some types of plastics. Raycon detects contaminants in the processing of aluminium packagings or other metallic foils. Other product defects such as broken, deformed, or missing products, clumps, air inclusions, as well as overweight and underweight can also be detected.


With respect to detection possibilities, radiation protection, and machine safety Raycon X-ray systems are absolutely state-of-the-art. When properly used the X-ray scanner poses absolutely no risk to operators or products. Radiation values are a many times below statutory limits. EU directive 1999/2/EC expressly permits X-ray systems for contaminant inspection for organic food. The additional benefit that innovative X-ray technology offers for users more than offsets the additional expense involved in purchase and operation.

Jörg Schaper, S+S area sales manager comments: "More and more customers from the meat industry are using X-ray for the quality inspection of their products. Compared to competitors’ systems our Raycon has demonstrable outstanding ease of operation and reliability. When purchasing X-ray systems, companies from the meat industry more and more choose S+S. We recently equipped 16 lines for a major customer with twin-line X-ray inspection, including a separate reject system for each line. The optional weighing function removes the need for check weighers“

In the meat industry the S+S RAYCON product inspection system, a comparatively compact and light X-ray scanner, is used for the final inspection of packed meat products.
