Security X Ray Machines
With security being paramount, it is more important than ever to invest in the right kind of security x ray machine. X-ray body scanners and x-ray baggage scanners help keep your passengers, assets and facility safe. Weapons, explosives and narcotics are just some of the contraband security personnel have to deal with. Dangerous cargo must be inspected by shippers or else it could end up across borders and in the wrong hands. Arenas and crowded events must be secured to keep both public and VIPs safe. And critical infrastructure around the world must be protected from internal and external intruders looking to do harm. That’s why Point Security is proud to provide the most technologically advanced & certified security x-ray machine on the market today.
An x-ray scanner identifies harmful organic, inorganic and metal materials. Different materials absorb rays at different levels. Security x-ray machines spot dangerous items by looking at the mass density and atomic number of the substances of the materials that pass through it. Metal, organic and inorganic materials show up differently on the screen. Organic items will appear as orange. Generally, explosives are made from organic materials, thus allowing personnel reading the x-ray scanners to identify threats. If an object’s mass and density falls within the range of dangerous material, x-ray scanners will warn the operator of a potentially hazardous object. A security x-ray machine uses low-dose penetrating radiation to detect metallic and non-metallic objects hidden under clothing or body cavities. The way to judge the capability of an x-ray scanner or x-ray baggage scanner is to look for what it can offer your staff and facility. Ask yourself these questions. How easy is it to use; will I have to train my staff for hours or days? What is the quality of the images; how easily are dangerous items detectable on the screen? How frequently does this machine produce a false alarm? Does this x-ray inspection system shorten the time and reduce human error, or is it producing many false positives?
