The CRx25P computed radiography scanner from GE’s Inspection Technologies business combines portability and durability with simple operation to create high-quality digital images within seconds.
The scanner is constructed to withstand the demanding conditions of industrial radiography for both in house and field service applications.
Optional self-contained battery
Designed specifically for applications in non-destructive testing, the CRXFlex is optimized for usage with both isotopes and X-ray sources. The system versatility can be seen through the premium performance across a wide range of applications.
• Improved Noise Performance
• Excellent Image Quality
• DICONDE compliant image analysis and data management
The CRxFlex offers wide dynamic range and high signal-to-noise ratio, which typically results in streamlined technique development and higher component throughput. A broad range of thicknesses can be inspected in a single exposure with the wide dynamic range, making the CRxFlex a perfect match for the inspection of castings and piping for erosion/corrosion. This capability also leads to less exposures and fewer re-takes.
One of the more unique features that the CRxFlex offers is its ability to be utilized with either hard cassettes ( in which the phosphor imaging plate never leaves the cassette) or some pre-defined size of imaging plates that can be exposed using a soft, flexible cassette and then scanned using a rigid insert cassette.
Reliability and Service
The robust CRxFlex has a small tabletop footprint and is designed for reliable operation in the harshest of NDT environments. Its modular internal construction allows ease of servicing and features long mean-times-between-failures (MTBF) and maintenance (MTBM) — minimizing downtime and maximizing uptime.
Horizontal Transport System
The CRxFlex has a state-of-the-art, horizontal transport system that is designed to have limited contact with the imaging plate during the scanning process. The result of this is that there is very minimal plate damage or physical wear that occurs during the scan. The scanner can accept imaging plates in hard cassettes or imaging plates fed in to rigid insert cassettes for scanning. The use of hard cassettes for applications in which the imaging plate would not be removed from the cassette can help extend the life of the imaging plate.
