Safety of Food X-ray Inspection

Some food manufacturers have reservations about the adoption of x-ray inspection as a method of product inspection. They are concerned that their staff will object to bringing x-rays into the workplace and that consumers could switch to another brand that hasn’t been subjected to x-ray inspection.

The levels of radiation used in the food industry are extremely low, and the use of inspection equipment is both highly regulated and increasingly common. Food manufacturers use x-ray inspection technology to ensure product safety and quality, and x-ray inspection gives them exceptional levels of metal detection for ferrous metal, non-ferrous metal, and stainless-steel. The technology is also extremely good at detecting other foreign bodies such as glass, mineral stone, calcified bone, and high-density plastics and rubber compounds.

Kelstreams machinery is equipped with high-end scrapers incorporated special additives to make them X-ray and metal detectable. Interested how we produce them?
