February 19, 2024

Visit Booth 1180 to see RMI 400 x-ray inspection system and Pack 400 HC x-ray machine

Eagle Product Inspection, leaders in x-ray food inspection and inline fat analysis, announces it will be highlighting the RMI 400 x-ray inspection system at North America’s largest seafood event, Seafood Expo North America/Seafood Processing North America. The Expo will take place from March 10-12, 2024 in Boston, MA at the Boston Convention and Exhibition Center. Also on display in Booth 1180 will be the Pack 400 HC x-ray machine, a quality assurance system ideal for seafood products. Experts at the booth will be on hand to discuss the many advantages of x-ray systems for a wide range of seafood applications, including clams, canned fish, and frozen fish blocks, as well as frozen fish fillet, salmon ready meals, and tuna in pouches.

Eagle Product Inspection’s x-ray systems can inspect food in formats ranging from unpackaged raw, bulk-flow and pumped products, to those in glass jars, bottles and metal cans. In contrast to metal detection, conductive foods pose no challenges for x-ray inspection systems in any size or format. X-ray inspection sensitivity is not affected by temperature, moisture or salt content and detection accuracy is not affected by frozen or thawing foods. X-ray inspection equipment not only detects metal but other foreign body contaminants, including bone, at higher line speeds with a lower false reject rate. Advanced x-ray technology is capable of detecting down to .4 millimeter metal contaminants in fish applications.

The RMI 400 x-ray inspection system on display is hygienically constructed to sanitary design with a unique curtain-less design for better product handling. The system’s x-ray inspection technology provides outstanding detection of physical contaminants regardless of their size, shape or location within a product. The RMI 400 can find and reject harmful bone fragments down to .5 mm in a wide variety of seafood applications and can also detect stainless steel, ferrous, and non-ferrous metals. The x-ray technology also offers mass measurement that provides an additional layer of process control and due diligence to ensure high-quality.

Visitors to the booth can also see the Pack 400 HC x-ray machine, which has been hygienically constructed to sanitary design with interlocked hinged louvers that lift easily to allow conveyor access for fast cleaning. This feature, along with easy-belt-removal, reduces the time and labor needed for daily sanitization. The Pack 400 HC features It also has a minimal footprint, saving space in the production line.
