Specialist x-ray inspection services to identify glass contaminants in food as well as glass packaging faults

X-ray of glass contaminant in glass coffee jar

 

Glass bottles and jars offer highly appealing packaging for food and drink products, however breakages and glass contamination can happen despite the strictest safety procedures.

Whether a CCP has failed or you suspect glass contamination has occurred, our x-ray inspection systems can be customised to the exacting requirements of your product, packaging and problem.

AIS are able to reliably detect glass and many other contaminants in food and within all types, shapes and sizes of packaging. Our high resolution x-ray sensors can also detect glass contamination within glass packaging, down to a resolution of 2.0mm.

Our x-ray systems can simultaneously identify various common quality issues such as broken bottle necks or glass container faults.

The following are typical examples of how our x-ray inspection services can detect glass contamination in food and glass packaging quality issues:

  • Large glass or metal parts in trays or cases of products, often without unpacking it
  • Small glass, stone or metal fragments in single containers
  • Product agglomerates
  • Fill level inspection
  • Certain bottle neck and container faults
  • Ensure quality standards when a CCP has failed, such as post-capping glass detection

When an incident has occurred, AIS can provide a higher level of x-ray detection performance than your on-line equipment. We are ISO accredited to help you achieve regulatory compliance for potential recall incidents, HACCP and TACCP.
