Last week’s blog focused on how to make the right product inspection choice to ensure food safety. Now let’s take a closer look at x-ray inspection.
X-ray inspection is all about differences in absorption.

Measurement of the differences in x-ray beam absorption between a product and a contaminant is the basis of x-ray inspection.
