New Computed Radiography Scanner CR50P Is Field Portable
Weighing just 22 kilograms, the CR 50P offers excellent image quality through its optimised optics and a scan resolution which can be user-variable from 50 to 130 Ám pixel pitch. Scan results can be displayed on a connected laptop or a local high resolution monitor. The output data can also be processed using Rhythm software, which has been specifically designed for NDT applications and offers advanced image review tools and data management and storage. In addition, Rhythm features extensive data sharing capabilities, allowing significant improvements in productivity and faster identification of defect indications.
The CR 50P accepts flexible, phosphor imaging plates up to 35.5cm (14 inches) wide and of virtually any length. Plates can be processed on a continuous basis, with one plate being fed into the unit while another plate is being scanned. The plates have been designed to operate in harsh environments and feature a special protective, scratch-resistant layer. They are available in a sensitivity range from D7 - D4 depending whether resolution or speed is the governing inspection factor.
With its intrinsic flexibility, portability and efficiency, the CR 50P will find application throughout the industrial and process spectrum but especially in the oil and gas and aerospace sectors.
