Foreign Contaminant Detection: Food X-Ray Inspection

Source: Wipotec

Nowadays, X-ray scanners frequently replace metal detectors that can detect electrically or magnetically conductive particles. Metal detectors cannot detect glass, stones or plastic, only X-ray scanners are able to do this.

With optimum adjustment, it is then possible to achieve a false reject rate approaching zero – even with high product numbers and high speeds. The sensitivity of the WIPOTEC-OCS X-ray scanners is so high that they can detect even very small foreign bodies in the product.
