The Right Technology for Your Application

Two types of x-ray technology are used for food inspection today—single energy and dual energy. The concept that dual energy offers more accuracy and sensitivity, regardless of the application, is not true. Both types of x-ray technology have advantages. When deciding whether to opt for single energy or dual energy x-ray inspection technology for contaminant detection, manufacturers should consider the following five factors:

  1. Likely contaminant(s)
  2. Product
  3. Packaging
  4. Production speed
  5. Customer specification

This White Paper, ‘Single Energy vs. Dual Energy – How to Select the Right X-ray Technology for Your Application’, illustrates the advantages and disadvantages of both x-ray technologies giving examples for the kinds of applications they are best suited for when inspecting for physical contaminants such as metal, glass, steel, stone or plastics.
