Smiths Detection's advanced X-ray inspection system HI-SCAN 6040-2is HR has obtained Standard 3 Type C, an extended approval as Liquid Explosive Detection System (LEDS) under the requirements of the European Civil Aviation Conference (ECAC).

 HI-SCAN 6040-2is is a dual-view X-ray inspection system for the automatic detection of liquid explosives at security checkpoints where bags and personal belongings are screened.

As a Standard 3 machine, HI-SCAN 6040-2is features higher detection capabilities designed to reveal hazardous liquids in cabin baggage, thus enhancing the level of security at checkpoints. In addition, fewer bags are subject to additional re-inspection which speeds up the entire inspection process.

Barrie Foley, Vice President EMEA of Smiths Detection, said, "HI-SCAN 6040-2is HR is one of our newest products on the aviation market. We are proud that it is the first dual-view X-ray system in the world to achieve this standard. Thanks to the extended approval, the system offers particularly good value for money."
