Specifically designed for harsh wash down environments, it is ideal for the meat and dairy industries, says the company. The unit is said to have a user-friendly touch-screen interface that 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, says the company. 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.
