Clear to see why Ferme des Peupliers went x-ray


erme des Peupliers, which produces artisan dairy products, is using a new, split beam x-


ray inspection system from Mettler-Toledo, to guarantee the integrity of its yoghurts and milk-based desserts. Operating in the heart of Normandy since


1947, Ferme des Peupliers has become a recognised brand that employs traditional methods to produce its dairy yoghurts and milk-based desserts and regularly wins medals at the Paris Agriculture Show. The plain or fruit-layer yoghurts are sold in glass jars so the product quality can be seen. In a strategic move to consolidate their quality assurance policy, the company's managerial team chose a Mettler-Toledo x-ray inspection solution to meet their production constraints. With a range of over 40 yoghurts in glass jars


and two filling sizes (125 grams and 180 grams), the challenge was to find an inspection solution for the single production line that


would efficiently detect contaminants, such as glass and metal fragments, in still-liquid yoghurt products, some having a fruit layer. Use of a standard metal detector was not possible due to product humidity and the density of the glass packaging in combination with an aluminum seal. After a consultation period, during which


Mettler-Toledo presented results of tests already conducted on this type of jar and machine, Ferme des Peupliers decided to install an X3730 system. The X3730 x-ray inspection system, which is not affected by changes in temperature, features twin horizontal beams and allows physical contaminant detection, including glass fragments in the glass jar, as well as visual quality checks of the yoghurt fill level. The split-beam x-ray solution increases


detection sensitivity by imaging every glass jar twice in one pass. As each package is inspected from two different angles, blind spots are minimised and physical contaminants can be detected in any position, (even in the bottom on the jar). The system installed at Ferme des Peupliers currently checks 150 125g jars per minute, or 120 180g jars per minute.
