Advantages of X-Ray For Metal Detection

- X-Ray systems can detect all kinds of ferrous and non-ferrous metals, including stainless steel, copper, lead, and brass.

- X-Ray systems provide a specific location of a contaminant for analysis.

- X-Ray inspection is not temperature sensitive -- you're guaranteed accurate inspection even if your product is freezing cold or boiling hot.

Comprehensive Contaminant Detection

ScanTrac X-Ray systems can find a wide variety of contaminants in metal cans, including but not limited to metal, glass, stones and bones. Click here to learn more.

Best in Class Cost of Ownership

ScanTracs are among the most robust X-Ray inspection machines on the market. This means that they cost less to own and are available with a very affordable extended maintenance offering!

ScanTrac Minimizes False Rejects

The best inspection systems need to both find defects when they occur and minimize false rejects. False rejects are expensive not just due to the loss of salable product but because of the labor allocated to addressing them.

ScanTrac minimizes rejects because it offers an exceptionally repeatable inspection process that is not sensitive to temperature, humidity, condition of product, etc.

In many applications the false reject rate on ScanTrac systems is on the order of 1:100,000!

Commonly asked questions about Metal Detection

  • What sizes of metal can I expect to find?
    InspX X-Ray systems can detect metal contaminants down to 0.7mm in diameter at production line speeds. Keep in mind that product variation, thickness, and machine type can all affect inspection performance. For guaranteed results, contact us today to schedule a test of your product!

  • How fast are X-Ray inspection systems?
    InspX ScanTrac X-Ray inspection systems are designed for extremely high speed operation at line speeds up to 700 linear feet per minute (our fastest applications run in excess of 2000 containers per minute).

  • How long do X-Ray systems last?
    Metal detectors do wear out with use, particularly in hash environments. X-Ray systems are extremely long lived with expected life spans of over 10 years.

  • How does the pricing of X-Ray systems compare to metal detectors?
    The upfront cost of X-Ray technology is modestly more expensive than metal detector systems; however the greater functionality often more than offsets the purchase price differential. X-Ray systems also have consumable parts that, while long lasting, ultimately need periodic replacement. Overall, X-Ray inspection systems offer an incredible inspection value.

  • How safe are X-Ray inspection systems?
    X-Ray inspection systems use a very low level of radiation that does not have any permanent impact on the product being inspected. Furthermore, all ScanTrac X-Ray systems are specifically designed to meet or exceed world-wide regulatory radiation safety standards. InspX recommends that all X-Ray inspection equipment receive an annual safety certification – which is also often required by state or other local regulations.

Note that inspection capabilities do vary depending on the product being inspected. Please contact InspX for more details regarding inspection performance for your application.
