Protecting consumers from contaminants in the food chain is paramount to protect both the retailer and supplier alike – finding the smallest fragment of bone in meat, poultry fillets or fish can be seriously damaging both financially and to a company’s reputation.

Conventional bone detection methods by lowering X-Ray tube voltage to increase image contrast does not help if there is no difference of effect between a contaminant and a product, such as poultry bone in poultry meat. It is also difficult to detect foreign bodies in a product with uneven thickness, some parts of which are as dark as the contaminant. 

The KD Series of X-Ray Inspection Systems from Anritsu is highly sensitive for detecting the smallest bone fragments in a huge variety of food raw materials and finished poultry, beef and pork products, including fan, wish and rib bones in chicken breast meat.

KD-7 with DUAL X is the latest ultra-high sensitive addition to the range, which has a newly developed sensor. This dual sensor technology and the unique image processing algorithms using high energy and low energy simultaneously enhance detection sensitivity to previously unattainable levels. It performs reliable and accurate inspection of overlapping and randomly oriented meat products without negative effects. 

Also available from Anritsu are the standard KD74 model for specific applications and liquid products and the KD74-f for dry foods. The KD74 series has 0.4mm HD resolution and faster processing power improves contaminant detection and allows for the introduction of missing component, shape, count and Virtual Weighing quality inspection features.

For bone detection in pumpable meat, such as mince, diced pork and chicken nuggets, Anritsu’s Pipe Line X-ray is ideal when installed prior to forming machines. This system offers continuous inspection of fluid and semi-solid products flowing through a pipe – 1-2mm pork/beef bone detection, 2-4mm for poultry. Anritsu can also supply machines for detecting bones in a packaged finished product.

It is this extensive experience and commitment to providing food safety solutions through highly sensitive equipment for detecting very small foreign bodies, whilst not giving false positives, offers the meat and poultry sectors increased accuracy on foreign body detection.

All Anritsu’s X-ray inspection systems are renowned for satisfying every regulatory safety standard around the world. Anritsu UltraHD technology can detect down to 0.2mm diameter ferrous, non-ferrous and stainless steel sphere at production line speeds. Anritsu’s ability to detect contaminants with high accuracy, sensitivity and repeatability is unmatched in the industry.

Anritsu designs and develops all its products in-house to support every solution with 100% confidence. Its food safety solutions have earned global recognition for their outstanding performance, capability and credibility.
