The Fermata provides a high resolution X-ray inspection for product conveyed through a pipeline. The Fermata includes a variable diameter inspection pipe assembly for accurate and repeatable inspection of product flow. The high resolution X-ray tubes enable the Fermata to identify small pieces of foreign material, such as bone, metal, glass, and rubber.
The compact inspection assembly installs in a short linear space and can be equipped with a remote monitor to enable installation on pipelines well off the production floor.
The standard Fermata configuration includes a 4 inch diameter inspection pipeline assembly (optional 2, 3 and 6 inch configurations) and positive acting two-way discharge valve assembly with mounting.
All subsystems have been designed with the maximum system availability, redundancy, and fault tolerance in mind
Integrated wireless connectivity allows for secure remote support 24/7 globally. Peco InspX can resolve over 95% of customer issues with our powerful remote diagnostics software
Fully integrated end-to-end IT security offerings ensure your networks aren’t vulnerable and are defended from any outside threats. Optional IoT module allows for seamless SCADA integration
High contrast X-ray tube with independent power supply allows for lowest cost of ownership. Detector hardened against wear to maximize the component lifetime
High speed image acquisition and processing assures a high resolution inspection at speeds in excess of 600 feet per minute. With a four inch diameter pipe, this translates to inspection processing of greater than 300 gallons per minute
The total linear profile of the Fermata inspection assembly is slightly more than three feet. With the ejection valve assembly mounted immediately downstream of the inspection system, less than 5 feet of linear space is required
The Fermata’s quick access doors and flexible pipeline connections assure convenient access for review of the inspection assembly and cleaning
