How to Prevent Foreign Body Contamination


X-ray technology is most effective when purchased as part of a well-designed x-ray inspection program. The objective is to avoid foreign bodies right from the start, not simply catch them before they leave the factory.

The next generation of x-ray inspection systems -- The X3310 product launch
The Next Generation of X-ray Inspection Systems


X-ray inspection systems help to ensure the safety of products by providing unsurpassed detection of foreign bodies such as metal, glass, mineral stone, calcified bone and high density plastic and rubber.


Safeline X-ray's white paper entitled How to Prevent Foreign Body Contamination provides practical guidance for food and pharmaceutical manufacturers on how to minimize foreign bodies in the first instance by: 

  • Monitoring the quality of suppliers' ingredients.
  • Taking care when conducting maintenance routines and performing new installations.
  • Adopting good engineering and manufacturing practices.

The X33 x-ray system uses a single vertical x-ray beam, and utilizes new high sensitivity detector technology allowing the integration of a low power (20W) x-ray generator.  Click here to learn more.
