How X-Ray Inspection Ensures The Safety Of Dairy Products


Thermo Fisher Scientific’s X-ray detection technology enables the dairy industry to meet the more stringent food safety and quality standards with contaminant detection systems and watch for profits with two dimensional fill level detectors. The main advantage of using X-ray technology is the ability to inspect for the final product at the end of the production line, instead of inspecting just the ingredients before packaging. Another advantage is the possibility to calculate for mass, which is directly proportional to the weight of the product, allowing the X-ray system to reject if there is product missing in the package or jar.

Contaminant detection systems are designed to inspect packaged dairy products like shredded cheese, butter and margarine, ice cream, spread cheese in glass jars and dry milk in metal cans. These systems can detect metal, stone, glass and anything denser than the product itself that could be a constituent for a contaminant.
