Meyn introduces bone scanner

bonescan balkPoultry equipment maker Meyn has introduced a bone detection system called the Meyn BoneScan 440 ADX

The system has a capacity of up to 250 butterflies or 440 split fillets per minute and can save significantly on operating cost and labour.

The dual energy X-ray imaging technology and analysing software can guarantee detection rates of 99 per cent with a false reject rate of less than three per cent on all important bone types.

The Meyn BoneScan 440 ADX has been equipped to detect calcified bones as small as two millimetres. Apart from bones, also metal, glass and stone can be detected. Products that are suspected to contain bone or other contaminants are automatically removed from the product flow and dropped in a bin or onto a discharge conveyor for further manual inspection.

The new detection software makes it possible to process a wide product weight range within one setting which avoids the process of sorting the products on weight first. The weight of the individual products is automatically determined by the software, guaranteeing an optimum scanning accuracy.

The suspected fillets can be visualised at the rework station, facilitating the operator in finding the detected bone.
