X-ray tube for RT-inspection of heat exchanger welds

Dear colleagues,

I`m looking for a x-ray tube for RT-welding inspection of heat exchanger tubes welded in the tube plate.
The dimension of the tubes are appr. 10 to 50 mm in diameter and 1 to 6 mm in wall-thickness.
I need a special X-ray tube to do the weld inspction from inside to outside of the tube to inspect the tube weld.
Do aou have any informations?

P. Rost

Re: X-ray tube for RT-inspection of heat exchanger welds
You should also consider Isotopes for this requirement. Yb 169 or SE 75 may be alternatives. There are some suppliers out there that have developed special fixtures for the tube to tubesheet welds you describe.
