KV6550DV is a state-of-the-art dual view checkpoint X-ray inspection system with tunnel of 65 cm (w) x 50 cm (h), using two independent x-ray monoblocks to screen baggage thoroughly. It uses innovative dual view technology to generate a top and side view of the bag under inspection. These perpendicular images eliminate the need for security screeners to reposition or to re-scan the object regardless of their orientation in the x-ray tunnel, thus greatly improve threat detection as well as throughput. The KV6550DV is able to penetrate 35mm of steel with 42 SWG resolution, offers an operator friendly interface which supports the operator’s ability to identify illegal objects and explosives.
By introduction of advanced dual view X-ray screening technology, refineries security protocols have been enhanced and a new layer of protection against potential threats such as weapons and explosives has been added. It will also prevent other prohibited items, such as alcohol and narcotics, from entering the premises.
In addition to enhancing security, X-ray inspection makes the screening of belongings and deliveries safer and more efficient. The technology reduces the number of hands-on searches, meaning workers can enter the facility quicker.
