and FlexXray can provide inspection services for a wide array of
scenarios in which post-production inspection is needed.
The company uses medical grade X-ray technology that's
" able to find anything that's missing, " Luker said. While some
companies' HACCP protocols may run 1.5 to 3.5 millimeters in
foreign material sizes for their test spheres, he said FlexXray
can capture material as small as 0.8 millimeters. He said
the company's technology can help recover not only metal
incidents, but also plastics and ceramics that can otherwise
be " virtually impossible " to recover form an inline setting.
" If your maintenance department
is willing to invest in better
plastics, there are plastics that
can be found via X-ray now. "
Kyle Luker, FlexXray
While the dairy industry itself is constantly innovating with
new products and packaging formats, Luker said from a make
process standpoint on the back end, cheese, yogurt, cream
cheese and butter all have been manufactured mostly the
same way for roughly half a century. So integrating detection
technology into operations to further streamline the process
oftentimes is difficult.
That's not to say there has been a lack of technological
advancements in foreign material detection. Luker pointed
to forays into dual energy X-ray tech as one example of the
latest innovations.
" If your maintenance department is willing to invest in
better plastics, there are plastics that can be found via X-ray
now, " he said.
Petroleum-based plastics are the cheapest kind, and if a
dairy plant is constantly cleaning parts and frequently changing
out gaskets, Luker gave as an example, using better plastics on
$7 gaskets at every pipe juncture probably isn't appealing when
the cheaper variety can be attained for 30-cents apiece.
" But if foreign material is a potential source of recall or
rework or scrap or whatever it might be, it can be in your
best interest to upgrade your plastics to something that gives
you a better opportunity for protection if you do you have an
incident, " Luker said.
Investing in the latest foreign material and metal detection
technology - and the other costs that may come with taking
those steps - could prove beneficial for a company's image,
