Automatic Screening for non-metallic cargo
Meet ECAC Performance Standard
- Fully automatic detection of detonators and metal components of explosive devices
- Low-intensity electromagnetic field: uses no ionizing radiation
- Available in different sizes for inspection of single packages or entire pallets
- No dedicated operator needed
- Complete data logging and traceability
- No periodic maintenance or calibration required
EMIS® models 130160 and 130200 are the first available automatic e.m. scanners for inspection of entire pallets of non-metallic cargo. Moreover, the CEIA EMIS® Series are the first e.m. scanners that have been qualified according to the TSA Air Cargo Screening Program. They are also the first devices that have been tested under the ECAC Common Evaluation Process Framework and meet the ECAC performance standard for Metal Detection Equipment (MDE).
Fully automatic detectionThe EMIS® is designed to automatically detect detonators and metal components of explosive devices inside paper, newspaper, perishable goods such as produce, fish and meat (fresh or frozen) and organic material in general. Electromagnetic inspection is the most suitable and quickest method for checking non-metallic cargo. The advanced technology employed in the EMIS® minimizes the interaction with the goods themselves and does not depend on visual interpretation of an image by an operator.
Efficiency and low cost of ownershipThe EMIS® offers the ability to automatically screen complete pallets, helping to avoid the need for breakdown and ensuring the highest throughputs are maintained when compared to other approved technologies. The automatic electromagnetic analysis offers a superior level of detection performance guaranteeing the safety of all shipments.
The automated screening process does not require the use of an operator for image interpretation and no regular staff rotation periods for constant operation. Peak periods can be helped by the increased throughput EMIS® offers, combined with the ability to redeploy staff normally associated with image interpretation to areas where they are most needed.
The solidstate construction requires no periodic maintenance or calibration ensuring a substantial reduction in the life-cycle costs of the equipment.
