White paper states the importance of choosing primary or secondary packaging inspection in the food industry.
The white paper deals with the decision food producers need to make when implementing quality control systems in their production, where to place the inspection; primary or secondary packaging.
A conclusion to this the white paper states that for food manufacturers and packagers, utilizing X-ray inspection systems at CCPs to examine primary packaging provides an advantage in accuracy, reliability, and cost compared to secondary packaging inspection systems. That is why primary packaging inspection has been established as a best practice in the food industry.
Less than one in 40 X-ray units in place at food manufacturing facilities are large- format secondary inspection systems. The vast majority are in place to inspect singe product units.
Using X-ray systems to inspect primary food packaging enables companies to detect a wider variety of physical contaminants more accurately, which improves safety and reduces the risks and costs of false rejects. Primary packaging inspection systems are smaller and easier to install and maintain, and they can be used for additional inspection applications that can boost the return on investment in the technology.
