New CMOS x-ray detector is ideal for demanding pipeline and weld inspections|
Waterloo, Canada – February 12, 2019 –Teledyne ICM, and Teledyne DALSA, both Teledyne Technologies companies, and global leaders in CMOS x-ray detectors, will introduce the new CMOS Shad-o-Box 2K HS industrial x-ray detector at the Nondestructive Testing Management Association’s (NDTMA) Annual Conference in Las Vegas, Nevada from February 12 to February 14.
Teledyne DALSA’s exceptionally high-resolution (49.5 µm pixel size) and fast frame rate (up to 10 fps) detector is ideal for non-destructive industrial x-ray applications, including pipeline and weld inspections. Because of its narrow enclosure and built-in GigE (Gigabit Ethernet) interface, the Shad-o-Box 2K HS is also optimized for pipeline crawler use.
The Shad-o-Box 2K HS complements Teledyne’s family of high-resolution CMOS-based x-ray detectors and their applications. Together with Teledyne ICM’s ruggedized portable GO-SCAN XR detector and the new large area Rad-icon 2329 panel, these 49.5 µm pixel detectors are the perfect solution for a growing number of challenging NDT weld inspections problems. By reaching a resolution of D13 with high contrast sensitivity, these detectors are perfectly suitable for applications ranging from 2.0 to 25 mm in material thickness according to ISO 17636-2 class B.
“In a recent welded aluminum inspection to identify non-uniformities in wall thickness for a customer in the aerospace industry, Teledyne’s CMOS x-ray detector was able to identify both the .18 AL IQI and .25 AL IQI’s to a sensitivity of 2-1T without difficulty,” commented systems specialist, John Cope. “In my 46 years in the business of Non-destructive Testing, this is one of the more challenging digital radiography applications I’ve conducted. Teledyne’s CMOS detector was revealed to be the best solution for this demanding application over the other available technologies." John Cope – NDT Specialist.
With the extensive 49.5 µm pixel-detector line-up, the co-exhibitors will also display different x-ray solutions from their respective product ranges. Teledyne ICM will highlight the CP200D, the lightest 200 kV portable x-ray generator on the market, as well as the CP160B, a compact 160 kV battery operated portable x-ray source with small focal spot.
Teledyne DALSA will also show its Remote RadEye HR detector, a slim 33 x 22 mm, 20 µm detector ideal for inspections in tight or difficult-to-reach spaces.
