How Does X Ray Scanner Aid in Improving Airport Security?

Anybody who has been traveled by plane knows that liquid Inspection is very tight nowadays. You’d better not carry any type of drinks with you unless you checked them under certain terms. You should be told to empty the contents of your pockets, take off your shoes, and walk through a strange door, but it’s more than that.

As a high number of people travel by air every day, airport security is a must for public safety. Since the 9/11 attacks in 2001, more and more airports upgrade their techniques and methods which used in protecting aircrafts, staff and millions of passengers who rely on the aviation system. The governments, the airline firms, the aircrafts companies, the airports, all of them are doing everything they can to insure aviation safety. Airplanes have to undergo regular safety checks; passengers are screened before they reach into areas where the exit gates to the aircraft are located; and what about their luggage? We all value our privacy and no one wants his/her own bags to be examined thoroughly by a stranger under the public gaze. How embarrassing! Furthermore, it needs enough manpower to do so. Besides, it also takes time. Fortunately, there’s a win-win way to solve this problem on this situation – using X-ray security baggage scanner.

Therefore airport baggage scanner plays an important role in regular safety checking process. It uses X-rays to inspect the interior of your luggage for security threats without unzipped them before getting on airplanes. It can be used both for carry-on or checked baggage and other inanimate objects going on the plane. Consequently it has found an increasingly wide utilization in all fields not only in aviation system but also in other transportation systems.

Airport security apparatus can be connected to local network and show super clean images on the purpose of searching for objects that aren’t allowed in the airplanes, such as sharp objects like knives, or other tools with a cutting edge, explosive or flammable materials like fireworks, dangerous chemicals and other objects. Liquids or gels you can carry-on are limited to 3.4-ounce (100ml) containers. However, they have different ‘Not Allowed Lists’ on security inspection of carry-on bags and checked luggage. Some dangerous items, for example guns, are illegal in certain countries and you cannot carry them with you or in your luggage when you fly to there as well. By this token, it’s not harmful for you and your friends or relatives to have a little knowledge of the prohibited articles in carry-on or checked bags before air travel and plan ahead according to some detailed policies of domestic fights and international airlines.

With such cumbersome process, lots of people may feel indifferent since they are still safe and sound although they’ve been traveled by plane so many times. However we should not ignore the necessity and importance of airport security and everyone could pay attention to any behavior against the aviation safety. The most effective attitude is to cooperate to the regular security check. Somehow airport security relates to our own safety after all.
