The XR Standard series of x-ray inspection systems is a diverse group of advanced models capable of inspecting a wide range of products. They are powerful systems with best-in-class componentry that can detect even the smallest contaminants. In addition to detecting all metals, users can find glass, hard plastic, rubber, ceramic, bone, and other mid or high-density foreign materials. XR Standard series x-rays cannot be beaten when it comes to effective, inline inspection and sensitivities of food and beverage products.
As the staple of the XR product category, our XR standard performance systems will handle most any x-ray inspection challenge. Whether you need to find and remove small pieces of stone in walnuts or pumpkin seeds, or inspect products packaged in metal cans or foil pouches, we have the right option for your application. Using powerful generators ranging from 210 to 480 watts, our XR standard performance series yields amazing sensitivity in almost all product types. These systems can detect foreign bodies as small as 0.2mm, and expand the range of what is traditionally thought to be detectable with x-ray inspection. Plastic conveyor belting, small bones in poultry or red meat, rubber and gasket pieces, and even certain organic materials are now able to be successfully detected using the XR series of x-ray inspection systems.
The XR series from TDI Packsys consists of dozens of models, each specifically designed to maximize inspection sensitivity and integrate smoothly into an existing process. With an array of generator strengths, detector types, software options, and configurations available, we help our customers choose the exact system for their application to achieve unmatched performance.
The TDI Packsys XR series of x-rays covers nearly every product type and size on the market. Both packaged and unpackaged products can be inspected with ease using the XR standard series of x-rays, and we guarantee the absolute highest levels of sensitivity. By utilizing an array of generator types and strengths, detector configurations, software options, and various other component choices, we are able to customize the XR series of x-ray systems to fit each product and process exactly, providing the absolute best performance and sensitivity while meeting your unique needs.
Regardless of your production environment, speed, or product type, the XR series offers a versatile and reliable inspection to maintain the highest quality of product, while keeping you running.
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.
Rather than offering an off-the-shelf machine like many vendors, we at TDI Packsys provide fully customized inspection solutions. The XR series of x-ray inspection systems contains over 4,500 unique system options, with varying strengths, washdown ratings, software options, and configurations. This customization aspect of our process allows TDI Packsys to provide x-ray inspection systems made specifically for your application. We work with you throughout the process; performing validation testing, visiting your facility, and learning every detail of your process in order to design the best possible system for you. Our XR series of x-ray inspection systems are frequently tested head-to-head with other systems on the market, and simply cannot be beaten when it comes to performance and sensitivity. With detection of foreign materials down to 0.3mm, the XR series from TDI Packsys is the pinnacle of x-ray inspection.
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.
