Smiths Detection, the world's leading provider of X-ray and trace detection equipment, today announced the receipt of a substantial order from Brazil for 44 of its new compact HI-SCAN 5030si X-ray systems. These systems will be deployed to correctional facilities within the state of Sao Paulo to screen small bags, envelopes etc. for prohibited items such as weapons, drugs and other illegal contraband that may be brought in by visitors.

Suitable for a wide range of applications, the HI-SCAN 5030si systems in the penal facilities of Sao Paulo benefit from the well-proven high technology standard of the aviation industry. They meet the requirements of Brazilian security professionals for compact, rugged and mobile tabletop security solutions.
