X-ray Food Inspection Process

Throughout our entire foreign material inspection process, we maintain product traceability so you know the specific pallet, batch/lot numbers and bag/container times in which we find the contaminant.

Our in-depth reporting covers everything down to the smallest details, including machine time and opening and closing delta temperatures.

We provide the detailed summary inspection report of our findings back to you within 24 hours of completing the inspection.

As an additional service, we can perform a secondary contaminant retrieval inspection in which we physically pinpoint and remove the contamination. This more comprehensive catalog report maintains traceability back to the inspection report and is then sent to you within 48 hours.

Metal Detection

Our X-ray and Metal Detection Equipment

FlexXray’s Custom Cabinet X-ray inspection machines detect foreign particles down to 0.8 mm — and even smaller, in some cases. This means that our custom equipment can find materials that your inline inspection machines easily miss.

In certain cases where you can’t ship your product to us, we can provide mobile single camera X-ray rental machines so you can perform the same kind of custom X-ray inspection that FlexXray specializes in at your own facility. We provide a trained technician to deliver, set up the equipment, and provide training for your staff on our equipment before leaving the inspection to you.

FlexXray now offers Fortress Metal Detector rentals. From ultra-sensitive conveyor metal detectors to larger case systems to bulk gravity detectors, we have a solution for your specific inspection needs.

Additional Food Safety Services

Protecting food from contaminants is a key part of what FlexXray offers, but the abilities of our equipment allow us to do much more to keep your food safe.

Among the other food safety services we provide are:

Contaminant Retrieval

By performing this valuable secondary inspection service we pinpoint the contaminant, dissect the product, remove the foreign material and document the findings in a comprehensive report maintaining full traceability to the pallet, batch/lot and bag/container time. This unique service provides you the exact data you need to verify your internal investigation, to provide proof of contamination and to quickly move to final product disposition with confidence.

Shrink Bundling

In some instances, we have to open shrink-wrapped cases during the inspection process in order to inspect individual units to achieve the most sensitive capabilities. When this happens, we have the capacity and machinery to re-shrink wrap the good product so that it is ready for distribution.
