X-ray Technology for Food Inspection: More Than Foreign Body Detection

Food manufacturers have been relying on x-ray inspection equipment’s superior foreign body detection capabilities since the early 1990s to protect consumers and maintain brand reputations, but x-ray technology for food inspection is capable of more than just detecting contaminants.

Eagle’s ‘More Than Foreign Body Detection?’ white paper looks at the ability of x-ray systems to solve a wide range of food safety and quality control issues typically found within food, beverages and pharmaceutical manufacturing. It explores how x-ray inspection equipment can help avoid product recalls and customer disappointment by detecting faulty products before they leave the factory. It also describes how in a single pass—and at high line speeds—x-ray systems can measure mass, count components and inspect fill levels and seals.
