WUNSTORF, Germany –GE’s (NYSE: GE) Measurement and Control has debuted its computed radiography (CR) CRxVision scanner. The tabletop scanner is designed to cover stringent weld inspection standards: ISO 17636-2 Class A and B, ASME, ASTM and EN, and can be used for other NDT applications.
GE said the CRxVision scanner provides a flexible and productive way to increase throughput and extend plate life. The scanner reduces exposure time while providing high-quality images. Key features, benefits, and capabilities of the CRxVision scanner and its compatible software include:
- Extremely wide latitude eliminating need for multiple gain settings when exposing over wide range of thicknesses
- Equipped to scan multiple plates, side-by-side or back-to-back, resulting in high throughput
- Ability to scan any shape or size of imaging plate from 0.75 to 60 in. (20 to 1500 mm) in length
- New, highly efficient laser optics, which result in better image quality at lower radiation doses
- BAM certified class IP 1/40.
The CRxVision can be used in ambient light and features a light cover that protects plates from light exposure during scanning. The scanner is portable, weighing less than 99 lb (45kg) and 22 x 22 in. (560 x 560 mm) in size. The unit extends to 22 x 50 in. (560 x 1280 mm) when the feed and exit trays are attached. It is designed to fit through a 23-in. (584-mm) door for mobile darkroom use.
As the new member of the CR and DDA family, the CRxVision scanner has the capabilities of GE´s DICONDE compliant Rhythm Software platform.
