RXP-2025IO single-beam x-ray inspection systems are specifically designed to offer the best performance in the inspection of cans, jars and bottled products. With its advanced, proprietary software enabling it to inspect 100% of the product area, you can rest easy knowing nothing can get past this x-ray. The RXP-2025IO utilizes unique placement of its generator and detector, which allows it to look down on the product at a decline as it passes, rather than directly from the side or top like most x-ray inspection systems. Products that have punts, ridges or any other packaging on the bottom that may be difficult for other x-rays, can all be easily inspected using the RXP-2025IO.
RXP series x-ray inspection systems from TDI Packsys are specifically designed for the inspection of jarred, canned or bottled products. Their unique configuration allows for products in a variety of packaging types, sizes and shapes to be inspected with the highest level of confidence.
For products with punts or large seams on the bottom, the RXP-2025IO single-beam x-ray uses an adjustable, mounted generator/detector set to look down on the product and ensure detection of any foreign bodies at the bottom of the product. This allows for the elimination of any “blind zones” seen by other x-ray inspection equipment. Combined with fully integrated side transfers, infeed/outfeed conveyor sections, and an automatic reject, the RXP-2025IO has had every aspect designed with the beverage and canned/jarred food process in mind.
While other standard x-rays also use a single generator and detector set to inspect a product, the RXP-2025IO single-beam x-ray utilizes strategic placement and orientation of these components to specifically target the most difficult areas of inspection in jars, bottles, and canned products. Metals, glass, stones, bone, and other high density contaminants will all sink to the bottom of a product through time and movement that occurs in the production process. Contaminants that are hidden behind punts or convex bottoms can be difficult for most x-ray systems to detect, as they’re masked out by the natural aspects of the packaging. If you’re using a standard x-ray, these contaminants sitting at the bottom of your product might make it through your inspection, and eventually, to the consumer.
This concern has been eliminated by the RXP-2025IO single-beam x-ray from TDI Packsys. By positioning the generator above the conveyor level and the detector below, the RXP-2025IO is able to look down on the product; achieving a complete and thorough inspection of the package bottom even with the most difficult of packaging. With an adjustable slider that can position the generator at the optimal location for each product type and size, all jarred, bottled, and canned products can now be inspected with ease using the RXP-2025IO single-beam x-ray.
Each of our X-ray systems come with the training, service and support your staff needs — TDI Packsys is with you every step of the way to make sure you are 100% satisfied. Additionally, TDI Packsys provides annual testing, certification and maintains FDA registration to ensure your system remains in complete and continual compliance with all applicable regulations.
All X-ray inspection systems use componentry from global market leaders, including VJT, Siemens, and Schneider. Each unit is constructed of 304 stainless steel with a stunning mirror finish (optional sand blasted finish). X-ray Inspection systems from TDI Packsys can be used in virtually any environment, and all areas are rated for full wash down with our IP69K option.
TDI Packsys offers the most precise X-ray inspection systems on the market. When your application requires an exceptional level of metal detection sensitivity, or the ability to detect non-metallic contaminants such as bone, stone or even glass, then pharmaceutical or food X-ray inspection equipment is a necessity.
TDI Packsys offers a wide variety of systems that deliver best-in-class performance at a tremendous value. No other provider can match the level of safety and quality of inspection systems that TDI Packsys delivers. Our machines also provide a higher level of quality and performance features, such as unique triple-beam X-ray detection, for incredibly precise three-dimensional inspection.
If you are interested in seeing the superior performance of X-ray inspection systems from TDI Packsys, we offer free, no-obligation validation testing of your exact products and any contaminant samples you would like tested, in addition to our standard certified contaminant sample set. We simulate your exact production conditions and will provide photos, videos, and a formal report on the sensitivities you would be able to achieve with a TDI Packsys x-ray. Reach out today to get your validation test scheduled and see the real difference of TDI Packsys x-rays.
X-ray inspection systems work by producing beams of high frequency electromagnetic radiation (x-rays) in a generator. These beams are then directed at a desired target, which will absorb some of the rays while allowing others to pass through. On the opposite side of the target from the generator sits a detector which then reads the EM waves that make it through the target.
The higher the density/larger the size of the product, the less radiation will pass through. The result is an image produced by the detector which details the high and low density areas throughout the target. This is the same principle seen when making shadow puppets on a wall. Some light is blocked by the puppet, and the resulting shadow gives detail on the shape of the puppet. With x-rays, that detail is also internal.
The main difference between metal detectors and x-ray inspection systems is in the methodology of how each machine inspects for foreign materials. Metal detection relies on conductivity to locate stainless, ferrous and non-ferrous metals in product, while x-ray uses density differences between the product and foreign bodies to perform inspection. X-ray technology allows for a far greater range of foreign materials to be detected, including metal, glass, stone, bone, rubber, gasket (both metal detectable and non-metal detectable), plastic, and various other mid and high-density items. As a general rule of thumb, x-ray inspection systems are able to detect contaminants at a much smaller size than metal detectors.
Some products are limited by their composition and packaging with which inspection systems can be used. Products with metallic packaging, such as those with metallized foil, cannot be accurately inspected with a metal detector, and require the use of an x-ray system. The best way to determine which option is best for your application is to receive a consultation or free, no-obligation validation testing. We can test your exact product on a variety of different systems using certified test cards, or foreign material samples you provide, to offer you a formal report on the capabilities and expected performance of each type of technology. At TDI Packsys, we believe validation testing on your specific products is an integral step in choosing the right system for your needs.
No PPE is required to be worn while operating x-ray inspection systems from TDI Packsys. The use of lead lining and protective curtains in the x-ray mitigates radiation from the generator, allowing only a fraction of the radiation used in inspection to exit the system. The FDA regulates these systems, and has set a standard of 5 μSv/hour as the safe level of radiation. X-ray systems from TDI Packsys emit doses of less than 1 μSv an hour, well below the FDA allowable limit. Every day, we are exposed to background radiation naturally produced by the sun and various environmental factors. Each year, the average person is exposed to 2,400 μSv of this background radiation, a higher dose than you would get standing next to an active x-ray inspection system for more than 3 months straight.
