Benefits of Dual Energy X-ray Technology
Dual energy Material Discrimination X-ray (MDX) technology gives food manufacturers exceptional contamination detection capabilities.
Using dual energy technology pioneered for the security industry, MDX’s ability to discriminate materials by their chemical composition (atomic number) enables the detection of foreign bodies, previously unseen by x-ray or other conventional inspection means including:
- Flat glass
- Some plastics (plastic detection is dependent on plastic types and requires actual product testing)
Eagle’s ‘How to Detect Previously Undetectable Foreign Bodies’ webinar explores this product inspection option and the advantages it offers manufacturers of bulk and packaged products with varying density levels, such as bags of mixed salad leaves, cereals, nuts and confectionery.
