FOOD MANUFACTURING WHITE PAPER

The Principles of Due Diligence For Quality Control and Legal Defense

The white paper explains the importance of identifying foreign body contaminants in food and can be used as a checklist to evaluate the various metal detectors and x-ray inspection systems on the market.

Understanding The Probability Of Detection In X-Ray Inspection For Food Manufacturers

Probability of detection (POD) seems like a relatively simple number which vendors use to reassure potential customers of a machine’s capabilities for contaminant detection. However, there is more to the numeric value of POD than just taking it for face value. This white paper explains how POD is calculated and why 100% POD is unachievable and it also looks at factors that affect sensitivity of contamination detection while lastly discussing how the latest innovations in x-ray inspection technology are designed to enhance detection performance, while explaining how food processors can ensure POD is consistent throughout the lifetime of their x-ray system.
