All the Power of Two Sets of X-ray Energies

MDX dual energy technology, measures the ratio of two different sets of x-ray energies that pass through a product and this measurement enables organic and inorganic materials to be differentiated, providing food processors with unprecedented contaminant detection capabilities.

Food processors worldwide have been relying on Eagle’s superior dual energy technology for more than 15 years. Originally pioneered for use in the security sector, MDX was developed to detect foreign bodies previously unseen by x-ray or other conventional inspection technologies in product applications that produce busy x-ray images.

Perfect For Industries

Advanced dual energy MDX is ideal for challenging products such as packages of shredded cheese, yogurts with added ingredients, bagged vegetables, bulk potatoes, dried figs and more.

Perfect for raw and bulk product inspection

Single Energy vs Dual Energy

There are two types of x-ray inspection technologies available for product inspection: single energy and dual energy. While it is true that dual energy offers more detection accuracy and sensitivity when inspecting products, there are certain factors to be considered to determine if dual energy is the right inspection technology for your specific application such as:

  • Likely contaminant
  • Product
  • Packaging Type
  • Production speed
  • Customer Specifications

This white paper illustrates the advantages and disadvantages of both x-ray technologies using real application examples. Find out if dual energy is right for you!
