Red Meat X-ray Inspection Systems

X-ray Inspection for Red Meat Including Bulkflow Fresh Cuts, Ground Meat, Packaged Meat, and Wide Format Meat Products.

Our red meat x-ray inspection systems can help you achieve high product quality and safety through our many unique algorithms that enable multiple inspections from one machine. We offer x-ray solutions for pipeline meat with the G70, systems for loose and packaged meat with the G20 and G40, and systems for tinned meat with the G30.

In-line and end-of-line x-ray systems have differing hygiene requirements. Our team can advise you on machine specifications and modifications to meet standards up to IP69K, for the highest hygiene and washdown capabilities. For more information, contact us.

Red Meat X-ray Applications

Fat/lean analysis
Ensure product conformity (e.g. check meat patties are shaped correctly)
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 to ensure accurate weight of packaged red meat
Identify foreign objects such as metal, bone, glass, certain plastics, and other items

Why Choose X-ray Over Metal Detection for Red Meat?

X-ray can detect glass, stone, and other non-metal contaminants in addition to metal (whereas a metal detector cannot).

A Sapphire Inspection x-ray system can also conduct end-of-line inspection regardless of packaging material; for example, an x-ray can inspect red meat contained in metal and foil packaging (a metal detector cannot).
