Poultry X-ray Inspection Systems


Poultry X-ray Inspection Systems

X-ray Inspection for High Speed, High Volume Poultry Production

Sapphire Inspection Systems have developed one of the most advanced poultry x-ray inspection systems on the market. Our latest development, the dual-energy G120 Visum x-ray system, has the ability to detect very small fragments of fan and rib bone in fresh chicken fillets.

We also offer x-ray solutions for the pipeline inspection of mince and slurries, end-of-line inspection of packaged poultry, and in-line inspection of formed, processed poultry such as nuggets. Our x-ray systems can inspect fresh, frozen, and pre-cooked poultry.

Poultry X-ray Applications

Bone detection in fillets of chicken or turkey
Ensure product conformity (e.g. confirm a uniform shape on formed, breaded chicken)
Verify seals on packaging are correct
Component verification (e.g. ensure all components are present such as sauces and dressings in ready meals)
Provide zoned inspection (e.g. ensure all product compartments are complete)
Measure product mass for accurate weight packing
Identify foreign objects such as metal, bone, glass, certain plastics, and other items

Why Choose X-ray Over Metal Detection for Poultry?

A key advantage of a Sapphire x-ray system is the ability to detect bones in poultry (something which a metal detector cannot do).

A Sapphire inspection system can conduct multiple inspections to confirm product quality and detect both metal and non-metal contaminants.

End-of-line inspection can be conducted by an x-ray system, regardless of the type of packaging; for example, x-rays can inspect chicken and turkey contained in metal and foil packaging (whereas a metal detector cannot).
