Eagle Product Inspection Highlights Dual Energy X-Ray Technology for Enhanced Detection

Eagle Product Inspection, a global leader in advanced inspection and product safety solutions, highlights the application of its dual energy x-ray technology for food inspection. Dual energy enhances traditional x-ray inspection to reveal materials previously undetected by single energy x-ray technology or other conventional methods. Dual energy technology proves ideal for hard-to-find contaminants in poultry, seafood, red meat, cheese blocks, pet food, bags of salad, and trail mix.

Eagle’s proprietary Performance X-Ray Technology (PXT™) has set a new standard for x-ray detection by enabling processors to obtain higher-resolution images and capture more detailed data. In addition to increasing detection and reducing false reject rates, PXT™ also achieves unmatched versatility at a lower total cost of ownership. PXT™ combines with SimulTask™ PRO to provide the industry’s highest level of inline, automated bone and metal detection while simultaneously performing product quality and integrity tests. PXT™ can be run at stand-alone critical control points or be networked for complete process optimisation and efficient analysis.

Material Discrimination X-Ray (MDX) is another type of dual energy x-ray technology that provides unparalleled contaminant detection capabilities. MDX originally was created for the security sector but also proved particularly useful for detecting foreign bodies in challenging products such as shredded cheese, yogurts with added ingredients, bagged vegetables, bulk potatoes, dried figs, and more. MDX is ideal for products with complex density levels, perfect for raw and bulk product inspection, and discriminates materials by their atomic number.

By adopting dual energy x-ray technology, food processors can protect their brands and reputations, manage risks while ensuring regulatory compliance, and improve production efficiency across the board.
