Commonly asked questions about Metal Detection
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.
