X-ray product inspection technology has advanced considerably since its initial inception. With the invention of dual energy x-ray absorptiometry (DEXA) technology, the capabilities of x-ray technology were greatly expanded. No longer were x-ray systems reliant on just a grayscale snapshot of product contents—they could analyze materials by their chemical composition.

Accidental equipment and product contamination aren’t uncommon within food, beverage and pharmaceutical production industries. There are always risks present, whether through employee mistakes or even your own line equipment, which can put your goods and brand in danger.
Topics: detectable components
Detectable components are great tools for reducing your contamination risk in your food production process.
Food contamination is a constant threat in the food industry. The mere thought of having to deal with a product recall and the PR backlash that comes with it has been known to keep food manufacturers up at night.
X-ray inspection is one of the best technologies for ensuring food safety and quality on the market. This versatile technology can detect not only foreign contaminants, it can also check for:
In many of our posts about x-ray product inspection, we’ve frequently discussed the benefits of x-ray inspection to the food industry. However, the food industry isn’t the only one that can benefit from the use of x-ray inspection technology.
Controlling and limiting contamination risk during manufacturing is a critical step in any production process. Whether your facilities use x-ray inspection solutions or metal detection to assess product quality, there are still inherent risks for contamination along production lines.
In today’s production environments, product safety and the risks of contamination are more ingrained in operations than ever before. No matter what industry your company specializes in (food, beverage, pharmaceutical, etc.), the quality of your products is as decisive for your brand as the actual goods you create.
