JBT Corporation Acquires X-ray Food Inspection Company

JBT Corporation Acquires X-ray Food Inspection Company

15:19 2016

JBT Corporation, which provides technology solutions to high-value segments of the food and beverage industry globally, has purchased certain assets of Novus X-Ray, a supplier of advanced X-ray food inspection systems. Terms of the transaction were not disclosed.

Novus X-ray technology will be integrated into JBT’s Protein and Liquid Foods system offerings, providing greater value to customers. A dedicated and experienced technical team will support the Novus X-ray equipment, while selling will be enhanced though JBT’s global sales network.

X-ray inspection systems offer significant food safety advantages over traditional metal detectors. X-rays can identify a wide range of metallic and non-metallic food contaminants. Additionally, X-ray inspection systems easily identify stainless steel – the most common metal used in food processing equipment, and a more difficult material for traditional metal detectors to identify. The Novus X-ray system combines ease of use and low maintenance – similar to end-of-line metal detection – with the superior detection capability of X-ray.

“Our customers want a contamination detection system that helps ensure food safety,” says Steve Smith, Executive Vice President and President of JBT FoodTech. “In conversations with industry-leading food companies, Novus’ technology stood out as having an attractive combination of detection capability, ease of software use and reliability.”
