CT X-ray tube cooling system released by X-RAY WorX

(October 19, 2010) — X-RAY WorX presented its new concepts for the cooling of high-resolution microfocus X-ray tubes for the first time during the international conference on new developments in industrial computed tomography (CT) in Wels/Upper Austria.

The stability of X-ray tubes used in high-resolution computed tomography scans has an important impact on measurement accuracy for high-precision inspection, first part audits, construction of prototypes, and many other fields of application. Thermal effect caused by several sources of heat inside the X-ray tube can significantly decrease the quality of measurement results. The new cooling procedure reduces thermal effects and leads to a higher quality of three dimensional CT datasets and measurement results. Read more about inspection.

“For our X-RAY WorX microfocus X-ray tubes we offer a new, modular cooling concept with an optimized internal cooling of the target inside the tube head. This concept will be shortly extended by further internal cooling units to compensate thermal effects directly at their origin,” explained Jens Peter Steffen, sales manager of X-RAY WorX. For the further reduction of thermal effects on the measurement area, X-RAY WorX offers an external cooling unit for the complete tube head. This external cooling unit is flexibly adaptable and can also be installed on microfocus X-ray tubes from Feinfocus and Yxlon, among others.

X-RAY WorX concentrates on development and production of microfocus X-ray tubes for high resolution X-ray analysis. Learn more at www.x-ray-worx.com
