ST. LOUIS, March 13 -- Varian Medical Systems will exhibit X-ray and computed tomography (CT) products for the non-destructive testing market at the upcoming ASNT Research Symposium and Spring Conference taking place March 16-20, 2009 at the Millennium Hotel in St. Louis, MO.

The company will exhibit a number of products at the conference including:

  • A new computed tomography system, the BIR 500-450/225, capable of operating in volumetric (cone-beam) CT, helical volume CT, and real-time radiographic imaging modes. This system offers high-speed distributed reconstruction, providing dramatically improved image reconstruction performance on large volume data sets.
  • A line of high KV X-ray tube sources for non-destructive inspection (NDI), including the new Beryllium (Be) window NDI 451 X-ray tube, for inspection of castings for automotive, aerospace, and other industrial applications. The new Beryllium window NDI 451 tube can be used at energy levels ranging between 75kV and 450kV. The Beryllium window NDI 451 is highly efficient and features a very low filtration value, allowing more X-rays to be generated at lower energies than is possible with the standard Iron (Fe) window version of the NDI 451 tube.

Varian Medical Systems, through its Security & Inspection Products business, is the market leader in high-energy X-ray linear accelerators for non-destructive testing and cargo screening applications. Varian is also the world's largest independent supplier of X-ray tubes and flat-panel digital X-ray image detectors for medical and industrial applications.
