Computed Rad Image plate/film classification

I would like to ask if anyone is aware of any work completed or in progress to classify the various image plates/films from the differing manufacturers.

Kind Regards Charlie Jackson

Hello Charlie,

yes of course, our authority for material testing ( BAM ) is responsible for research / development and classification. Please visit their webside ( www.bam.de ) and looking for
Uwe Zscherpel ( PHD.) ! I pretty know that he will be able to help you, and of course he can give you an overview what is available on the market.

BAM = Bundesanstalt für Materialprüfung !

Thanks Chris

Good Question.

A composition of plate types and equivalent exposure would be much appreciated. Like having R factor for film. However things tend to get get complicated with reusable media!

I did some work a few years back to compare the 3 main suppliers. Did not find a big difference with exposures. HR plates were marginally better with sensitivity.

Some plates had a thicker base which made them more difficult to bend.

I have not been in the CR business for about 4 years now so I am sure my data is no longer valid with today's improved plates

ISAFE3 Intrinsically Safe Sensor System

ISAFE3 intrinsically safe sensor system of Vallen Systeme is especially targeted at the petrochemica
...
l - as well as oil and gas transportation industry. The sensor system is designed for permanent monitoring or periodic inspection tasks. Sensors are available for different AE-frequency ranges optimized for corrosion and fatigue crack detection and other applications. The ISAFE 3 sensor system consists of an AE-sensor (model ISAS3) certified according to ATEX/IEC for installation in zone 0, gas group IIC, IP68, 20 to +60 °C, and a signal isolator (model SISO3) certified for installation in zone 2. An ISAS3 sensor can be mounted in atmosphere or submerged, e.g. in water or crude oil. It is supported by mounting tools for temporary (magnets) or permanent (welded) installation. ISAFE3 supports automatic sensor coupling test and can be used with any AE signal processor supporting 28V supply at 90 mA peak, e.g. Vallen Systeme ASIP-2/A.
