The Thermo Scientific™ Xpert™ S400 side shoot X-ray Inspection System is a state-of-the art single beam system that is compact in size and easy to install and use. An existing conveyor can be routed through the inspection tunnel and the X-ray source/detector can be adjusted to its height in a matter of hours.

The Xpert™ S400 comes standard with a tall X-ray beam and detector capable of inspecting a broad range of products. X-ray power and detector resolution are chosen to match typical line speeds. A chicane line configuration is available also for tall, light, small diameter products that cannot pass through radiation shielding curtains without tipping over.

The Xpert S400 X-ray system from Thermo Fisher Scientific Inc. is specifically engineered to detect metal, glass, dense plastics and other foreign objects in vertically oriented containers, such as metal cans, cartons and stand-up pouches. The unit features a 160W monoblock and a 400mm-high detector.
