The Pipeline design promotes systematic product flow and delivers optimal detection of contaminants by using active product tracking, while reducing the amount of product rejected.

All the Power of X-ray Analysis

The Pipeline system is designed to specifically address the unique requirements posed by products flowing into a pipe, as well as helping manufacturers comply with stringent HACCP protocols and food safety requirements. The x-ray system inspects pumped product and rejects contaminants prior to packaging or processing. By removing contaminants earlier in the process, it decreases the potential for expensive downtime events caused by contaminants that may damage downstream equipment, such as grinders. 

Its unique manifold design provides a uniform area to maximize detection capabilities at 2.5”, 3” and 4” pipe diameters. 

Benefit from:   

  • Superior contaminant detection  
  • Fewer wasted packaging materials  
  • Less rework
  • Reduced product loss caused by the removal of contaminants after packaging.

What Our Customers Say

“We were very impressed with Eagle’s on-site service. The team adjusted the equipment to meet our needs perfectly.”
 Iglo Food Group
Mr. Arno Strotmann Project Manager
“The x-ray’s software program is very intuitive. It’s simple to set up and program. I learned a great deal from Eagle’s service department on how to run the machine and appreciate their know-how, availability 24/7 and professionalism.”
Tim Pheland Process Engineer
“Quality is key for us. Now, thanks to the Eagle Bulk 415 PRO we can totally say our products are contaminant free and we truly believe this will let us keep growing and exploring new markets.”
 Higos El Pajarero
Mrs. Fuensanta Carrillo Sales and Marketing Manager, Higos El Pajarero
“When first presented with the idea of inspecting our products using x-ray inspection systems, we doubted that it could help us to improve and assure the quality of their products; now it is a fundamental part inside of our system of quality.”
Ramiro Espinoza Kowi’s Plant Director
“Going forward, any new inspection systems or upgrades to current inspection technologies will be x-ray inspection systems, they are extremely reliable, easy to operate and easy to maintain.”
 Kens Steak House Dressing
Merrily Blasi Quality Assurance Manager.
“These machines do an excellent job of looking for and pinpointing any foreign matter, with instant and easy-to-use metal detection capabilities. And they can be taught and programmed to identify other unwanted substances by measuring product density. ”
 Unilever Canada
Galen Sienicki Factory Director
“The Eagle x-ray machine has resulted in a dramatic reduction of bones in our boneless products—basically down to zero. By purchasing a dual-lane system, we’re able to double our output, or run different products at the same time.”
 Giannone Poultry
Bruno Giannone Vice-President and CEO
“We chose Eagle’s Pack 430 PRO because of the machine’s software capabilities – in particular, the multitask features which offered more options, compared to competitors’ machines, such as checkweighing.”
