Supplying Fast-Moving Consumer Goods (FMCG) or Consumer Packaged Goods (CPG), such as food products, require a fast turnaround to ensure that highly perishable items reach the consumer as fresh as possible. During this process, food safety should be of the utmost importance, ensuring products reach the customer, free from unwanted objects such as bones, foreign objects, defects and contaminations can often be challenging. Adding a Digital Radiography solution to a production workflow allows for fast, insitu X-Ray imaging of products. This process can be added prior to goods entering the production workflow, such as purchased ingredients, or inline as part of the production process. Both methods are able to reduce the likelihood of unsafe objects or damaged goods reaching the consumer.

DFR X-Ray

The JME Digital Food Radiography System (DFR) is a bespoke radiography project for one of the largest food manufacturers in the UK. The focus of the project was to manufacture a unit that could X-Ray batches of inbound goods for quality control purposes, prior to accepting shipments into the factory.

The JME DFr system is a bespoke NDT solution that can be engineered to fit in with your company’s current work flow. The machine uses Digital Radiography to generate a radiograph that allows an operator to detect foreign objects or defects in foodstuffs, including frozen fish, chicken and beef blocks.

DFR

Products loaded into the machine through its ‘safe-system’, are scanned to log the bar code and then X-rayed to detect any defects or foreign objects. The machine incorporates numerous safety features, including  interlocks to prevent X-Ray operation in the event of a component failure; this includes any bulb failures on the X-Ray warning beacons.

The DFR is manufactured to engineering standards:

  • Machine performance standard ES003 Rev E
  • Electrical Standard ES001 Rev J
  • Electrical Standards ESS001 Rev J
  • Hygienic Design ESS BE H Design Rev B
  • Components Standard ES005 Rev E
  • ESS 005 Rev E

The DFR is capable of detecting each of the following in each type of food product block:

  • 3mm Glass Ball
  • 2mm Stainless steel ball
  • 2mm Steel Ball
  • 2mm Aluminium Ball
  • In blocks ranging from 62mm to 115mm
