Proposal number EXAW-1999-01155

AcronymXPLORE

Proposal titleHigh Resolution X-Ray Detector for Food Quality Control

AbstractThe aim of the proposal is the implementation of an innovative High Resolution X-Ray

Detector for on-line identification of pits, bugs or internal defects (bruises or frost damage)

after the fruit pitting process or immediatly before the packaging process of food

products. In particular, in the present project, a prototype for on-line detection of residual

pits (or pits fragments) in olives or cherries will be developed, because of the wide market

of this sector in Europe. The X-Ray technology was individuated by previous tests because

it allows a non-invasive and safe detection, as well as a good speed of processing. At

present, X-ray applications in food processing only allow the detection of metals and

foreign objects with strong difference of density with the product, but the identification of

bodies with very little difference of density, as the case of pits and bugs in fruit, proposed

in the present project, is a still not solved issue coming from the food processing sector.
