glass packaging inspection and safety

This white paper begins by explaining why glass packaging is rising in popularity. It then goes on to highlight the dangers of glass-in-glass contamination, describing how certain production processes increase the risks. The first part of the paper concludes by exploring the ability of x-ray technology to detect glass contaminants in glass packaging and considers the factors that affect detection sensitivity.

The second half of the paper takes a detailed look at the latest x-ray solutions available for glass-in-glass detection including systems with single beams, split beams, combination beams and angled beams. It explains that, as well as detecting physical contaminants, modern x-ray systems are multi-tasking defenders of product and brand quality. In a single pass, at high line speeds, x-ray systems can simultaneously monitor fill levels, detect damaged containers and check closures.
