X-RAY WorX is aiming to improve the flexibility of its microfocus reflection tubes to support increasing requirements for fast computed tomography in several industries.
With an optimised target design and the internal cooling, the new product line CT Plus allows continuous scanning at voltages up to 300 kV.
The new open microfocus tubes cover a range of operational setting. The achievable focal spot sizes between 10 and 450 microns are automatically adjusted based on the emission power of up to 500 W and voltage up to 300 kV. Detailed information about focal spot sizes depending on voltage and target power can be found in the new technical datasheet.
The CT Plus tubes are designed for continuous operation without scheduled cooling periods. The new design of the tube head with internal cooling makes sure that the process heat is dissipated uniformly, and internal components are protected effectively. A new Peltier-type cooler is introduced to keep the temperature of the tube head stable during operation. The newly designed reflection target delivers an almost round focal spot and exhibits a reduced heel effect, compared to standard reflection targets.
