Metal Detection Vs. X-Ray Inspection: What Food Processors Should Know

Bob Ries, Lead Product Manager, Metal Detection and X-Ray Inspection, Thermo Fisher Scientific

Metal detection and X-ray inspection, traditionally, have been the first line of defense to identify the presence of foreign contaminants in food products before they have the chance to leave the processing plant. For food quality and safety professionals who decide which technology will best protect them from contaminants, choosing a detection system is typically based on three things: the optimum detection point, overall application capability, and total cost/benefit.

This has led to some confusion regarding which technology to employ and why. This white paper intends to clarify which inspection technology will most benefit your company.
