X-ray food inspection is used to ensure the safety and quality of food products of any kind. X-ray food inspection can be used to detect physical contaminants in all kinds of food. It can also be used to perform a variety of integrity checks. Examples of this are measuring the percentage of fat in meat, counting components, monitoring fill levels, inspecting sealed products and checking for damaged products and packaging. It is perfect for this, since it does not damage the foods in the process.
At Magnatek, we provide several different x-ray sources for many different inspection tasks. Our x-ray sources are especially effective for low energy measurement. This is particularly useful for detecting very small thickness- or density variations in food products, such as detecting small bones in fish or chicken.
