X-ray Inspection of Almonds

Almond farming and harvesting inherently run the risk of including undesirable foreign objects together with nuts sent from the field to processing lines. Selecting and implementing the right x-ray inspection technology for finding and removing those contaminants are critical to food safety, maximizing product yield and bottom line efficiency.

This application note explores dual energy x-ray technology and the unique benefits it provides for the inspection of unpackaged almonds.
