X-ray checks enhance fruit quality control

Related tags: Fruit

Fruit specialist Fruit Gourmet, based at Allemans-du-Dropt in south-west France, has selected an Ishida X-ray inspection system for enhanced quality control, following the installation of the company’s multi-head weighers at its site.

Fruit Gourmet supplies a variety of fruits, including prunes, apricots, figs, grapes, mangoes, strawberries, raspberries, apples, blueberries, bananas and cranberries, which are sold to the consumer as cooking ingredients and as healthy snacks, packed in bags as well as in bulk.

The Ishida IX-GA-2475 X-ray model at the company’s site is being used for the inspection of bulk streams of the fruit pieces.

It can be set to high levels of sensitivity for contaminants that have been found in agricultural products, such as minute particles of glass, stone or buckshot.

Image processing software enables the operator, without any special training, to automatically generate the optimal sensitivity setting for each inspected product.
