X-Ray for Bulk Products

Bulk Products X-Ray system is predominantly used for food or non-food products in bulk such as unpacked nuts, dried fruits or sweets. Cassel X-Ray systems inspect for a full range of possible contaminants including metallic, and non-metallic (glass, ceramic, stone, bone, rubber, plastic etc.). Cassel X-Rays can inspect metallic and non-metallic packaging and canned goods. Inspection is not affected by temperature, humidity, salt content or any other product effects.

  • Two options for X-Ray detector — low noise 307 or 407 mm line scan CCD, diode pitch 0.8 mm, integrated x-ray beam stop
  • X-ray source is single beam x-ray generator with max. 60kV (50W), variable in voltage + current
  • Magnetic safety switches at cabinet doors and tunnel hatches, emergency stop push button. Emergency stop in/out interfaces to safety circuits of production line, x-ray off key switch, PILZ safety circuit


How the X-Ray for Bulk Products Works:

X-Ray inspection is sorting based on product density. An X-Ray inspection machine takes an image that is pixel based. The machine compares pixel density to stored pictures of “good” product to detect defects and contaminants. If the density of a product falls outside of acceptable range the reject mechanism removes the contaminated product out of the product flow.


  • Optional reject systems include, but not limited to:
    • Air Blast
    • Multiple Lane
    • Flap at Belt End
  • Additional options:
    • Lockable Reject Bin
