THE Applus+ SOLUTION
With its high-energy X-ray systems, Applus+ can provide fast, sharp, precise radiographs of cast steel or equivalent materials up to 28cm (11”) thick, with a material weight of up to 10 tonnes. Two per cent sensitivity can be demonstrated on material with a thickness of as little as 1.9cm (.75”).
Our Varian linear accelerators can image 15cm (6 inches) of cast steel on medium-grain film in five minutes, whereas a 100-curie Cobalt 60 source exposure would take 10 times longer for the same application.
2mm focal spot sizes allow for greater definition at shorter source-to-film distances, while a higher radiation intensity permits longer source-to-film distances, covering up to six 35cm x 43cm (14” x 17”) films in a single exposure.
With seven different high-energy systems (2 x 2MeV, 1 x 3MeV, 4 x 4MeV), Applus+ has the greatest high-energy, industrial X-ray service capacity in the US.
