Eagle Product Inspection, a manufacturer of X-ray machines for the food industry, has developed new X-ray technology capable of detecting bone fragments in poultry products.

Eagle Product Inspection’s Performance X-ray Technology (PXT) can detect bone fragments as small as 1 mm in size in fresh, frozen and refrigerated poultry products. This inline inspection technology detects the bone fragments thanks to detailed, high resolution imaging.

Once captured, the images are immediately processed via Eagle’s SimulTask Pro image analysis software, revealing results almost instantly, thereby avoiding production issues and delays.

Used in combination with Eagle Product Inspection’s RMI 44 X-ray machine, the PXT can detect bone fragments as small as 0.6 mm.
