X-Ray Inspection for the Food and Beverage Industries

X-ray inspection systems are widely used in the food and beverage industries to monitor product quality for safety, consistency and integrity. These systems can be used to confirm if packages are over- or under-filled or indeed if products are missing inside the packaging. X-ray inspection technology offers exceptional detection of contaminants such as glass, metal, stone, bone and high-density plastics, even for products packaged in foil or metallised film.

The team at Metrix NDT have over 25 years experience of designing and supplying x-ray systems to the food industry addressing a wide range of inspection requirements.

Metrix NDT will investigate x-ray inspection applications which cannot be addressed by existing turnkey x-ray machines and propose customised solutions.

X-ray systems can simultaneously perform a wide-range of in-line quality checks

  • Confirming mass
  • Measuring density
  • Counting components
  • Identifying missing or broken products
  • Monitoring fill levels
  • Inspecting seal integrity
  • Checking for damaged packaging.
  • Detect contaminants such as non-ferrous metals in foil, stainless steel, powders, bone, glass, wood, PVC, plastics, stone, ceramic, cement and rubber
