How To Use ACCUVUE X-Ray Inspection Equipment
Within the Medical industry diagnostic x-ray equipment and machinery is regulated by both the federal and state governments.
However, there are minimal regulations for 2 dimensional x-ray machines used in non-destructive testing.
Operating and safety procedures for x-ray machines in Texas are outlined in the Texas Department of State Health Services (DSHS) Radiation Control Act of 1961.
The procedures are generalized according to the Act. As an employer, you must develop and implement procedures
to monitor employee radiation exposure that are specific for your facility.
Inspection Process for ACCUVUE X-Ray Inspection Equipment:
We recommend that each plant designate a Person-In-Charge to coordinate activities between plant personnel, our technician and, when applicable, the USDA Inspector-In-Charge (I.I.C.).
In most cases, the inspection will require four of your personnel: one to monitor the screen, one to feed the product onto the conveyor, one to unload and repackage or re-palletize the product, and one to help out on either end and to keep the belt full at all times.
The CXR technician will demonstrate the operation of the equipment to all personnel. A seeded sample will be introduced into the machine to train the operators. On approval by the Person-In-Charge the inspection commences. The I.I.C. and the Person-In-Charge may choose to reintroduce the seeded sample throughout the inspection process.
