By ensuring the safety and integrity of a wide range of bulk and packaged food applications, an Eagle Product Inspection system can reduce the risk of costly product recalls, safeguard brand reputation and protect consumers from harmful contaminants and substandard food.

Investing in one of our x-ray systems can also help food manufacturers to achieve compliance with Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Points (HACCP)-based Global Food Safety Initiative (GFSI)-recognised standards, such as: The British Retail Consortium’s (BRC) Global Standard for Food Safety, International Food Standard (IFS), Safe Quality Food (SQF) 2000 Code and The Foundation for Food Safety Certification (FSSC) 22000.

Eagle x-ray systems provide exceptional detection of the following dense contaminants, regardless of their size, shape or location, within a variety of applications including glass shards (including glass contamination within glass containers), metal fragments (including metal within foil and metalized film packaging), mineral stone, some plastic and rubber compounds and calcified bone.

In addition to ensuring food is safe to eat, x-ray equipment is a highly-effective tool for keeping customers happy. By allowing manufacturers to ‘see’ inside packages, x-ray inspection systems can increase productivity by performing the following inline quality checks for fill level inspection, mass measurement, seal inspection and component counts. What’s more, foil and metalized film packaging and changes in product temperature and moisture content have no effect on the sensitivity of contamination detection.
