Pet Food X-ray Inspection Systems

X-ray Inspection for Wet and Dry Pet Food Products

Pet food is equally as open to contamination as human food. Our x-ray inspection systems can improve product quality for the full range of pet food product and packaging types, with the versatility to inspect tins, boxes, pouches, bottles, and loose pet food.

Pet Food X-ray Applications

Ensure product conformity and product completeness.
Confirm accurate fill-levels (e.g. milk replacements for young animals)
Verify seals and lids are correct (e.g. seals on pouches of wet pet food and ring-pulls on tins of pet food)
Measure product mass (e.g. ensure the accurate weight of dry kibble)
Identify foreign objects such as metal, bone, glass, certain plastics, and other items

Why Choose X-ray Over Metal Detection for Pet Food?

X-ray offers the capability to detect metal inside metal containers such as tins and trays of pet food. A Sapphire x-ray inspection system offers more sophistication than a metal detector because multiple inspections can be conducted by one machine, improving product quality and detection of contaminants such as glass and stone (which would not be identified by a metal detector).
