Mettler-Toledo Safeline To Showcase A PowerChekPlus X-Ray Inspection System For Meat And Dairy Industries At Pack Expo In Las Vegas


Mettler-Toledo Safeline, the worldwide leader in product inspection equipment, will showcase a PowerChekPlus x-ray inspection system featuring.

NEMA 4X environmental protection, AMI sanitary specifications, and Allen Bradley controls. Specifically designed for harsh wash down environments, it is ideal for the meat and dairy industries.

With its extremely user-friendly touch-screen interface, the system allows operators to be quickly trained for maximum uptime. Using low energy, electronically-generated x-ray technology for optimal sensitivity, PowerChekPlus detects dense contaminants such as metal, stone, bone, and glass. The system can also measure product mass, monitor overfill and underfill, and find a damaged or incorrectly packaged product — even in metal foil. Typical applications include finding stainless steel fragments in large packages of shredded cheese or in packs of yogurt with metallic closures, detecting bone chips in hot dogs, or identifying metal contaminants in meat patties. PowerChekPlus offers a low lifetime cost of ownership and unmatched reliability for ultimate brand protection.

All SAFELINE x-ray inspection systems are UL certified and are offered with 3-A Sanitary certification as an option. All systems are backed by the most comprehensive engineering solutions, product testing, customer service and training in the industry with 24/7 support.

The PowerChekPlus x-ray inspection system will be showcased in booth C-657 at Pack Expo in Las Vegas, October 5 – 9, 2009.
