X-ray Food Inspection & Sorting

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 as well as perform a variety of integrity checks, such as measuring the percentage of fat in meat, counting components, monitoring fill levels, inspecting sealed products and checking for damaged products and packaging – all without damaging 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, which is particularly useful for detecting very small thickness- or density variations in food products, such as detecting small bones in fish or chicken.
