Loma’s X5C X-ray inspection unit reduces the cost of ownership of X-ray technology by 30 per cent when compared to the company’s other models, making it ideal for food companies keen to make the switch to x-ray for the first time. It offers high quality contaminant inspection using a reduced number of well-proven subcomponents and compact design and can detect glass, calcified bone, rubber, stone as well as ferrous and non-ferrous metals, and stainless steel.
Capable of handling products up to 100mm (height) and 300mm (width) but weighing no more than 3kg, the X5C is particularly ideal for the inspection of ready meals, small packaged goods and convenience food.
To help comply with CFR21 part 11, Loma’s compact X5C is multilevel password protected for improved data management allowing the system to log events against individual operators. Produced from brushed stainless steel, Loma’s X5C X-ray unit also offers an ultra-hygienic design for easy cleaning and low maintenance and serviceability.
Loma’s combined X5 X-ray and CW3 Combo inspection system is capable of weighing products while simultaneously inspecting for foreign bodies, all in one integrated system. The two combined ‘detect and weigh’ technologies ensure food safety for brand protection, and consistency in weight, size and shape. The popular Lock PH Pharmaceutical Metal Detector offers advanced detection performance, construction quality and reliability characteristics, making it suitable for pharmaceutical and neutraceutical tablet press and de-dusting processes. It is easily integrated with tablet presses, de-dusters, polishers and encapsulation equipment.
The PH unit offers best in class calibrated detection levels of 0.25mmFE, 0.3mmNFE and O.4mmSt/St. Four password protected security levels are provided for operators, supervisors, engineering and administration. It is available with fully documented IQ, OQ and PQ validations for compliance with FDA, GAMP and GMPspecifications. It is design and construction compliant with 21CFR parts 10 and 11 and certified to NEMA 4X / IP66.
