System Advantages


Anritsu’s system goes beyond any other equipment in terms of detection accuracy, ease of use, reliability and worry-free peace of mind.

Now you can take your QC and HACCP programs well beyond just metal detection by targeting the elimination of other dangerous foreign matter – organic or non-organic – in a high-speed production environment.

DRWZ Dual Energy


For raw, unpackaged products, Anritsu offers the DRWZ Dual Energy X-ray Inspection System. What makes the DRWZ Dual Energy X-ray Inspection System so noteworthy?

  • It harnesses powerful new technology to deliver an extremely accurate, high-speed reading of poultry and meat products at a great value.
  • It’s unique in how it analyzes two different X-ray energy signals, allowing the system to distinguish between the product you’re processing and contaminants – for a higher detection rate of low-density items.
  • Designed for bone detection primarily, it's the ideal system for chicken and turkey breast meat, deboned thighs and tenders.

Pipeline Inspection


For pumpable product, Anritsu offers the Pipeline X-ray Inspection System available in 3- and 4-inch pipe diameters.

It's the perfect choice for detection of contaminants in pumpable products such as poultry trim and first-grind meat of all types. This powerful equipment is capable of processing literally tons of product per hour — as much as eight tons, in fact!

Anritsu has the most effective pipeline system for detecting bone, metal, glass, stone and other materials. It can detect poultry bones as small as 2mm and stainless steel as small as 0.5mm.
