October 15, 2012
touchless x-ray system thermo fisher scientific EZx 465Engineered for lightweight and open-container food product contaminant detection, the Thermo Scientific EZx 465 Touchless X-ray system eliminates the shielding curtains typically used to block radiation, while complying with all global safety standards, by conveying the product through the inspection chamber via a series of small slopes. The conveyor belt is slightly tacky to keep products in place on the slight upward and downward slopes. A reduced-height aperture ensures X-ray scatter does not escape from the inlet or outlet areas of the system.
