Carestream NDT Continues to Expand Non-Glass Portfolio with New Compact Detector
Carestream’s Non-Destructive Testing (NDT) group has released the HPX-DR 2530 PC, a non-glass detector that enables faster throughput for imaging, as well as rapid analysis and reporting. The durable non-glass design is built for the tough conditions of NDT work, especially portable radiography.
With a 145 μm resolution, the HPX-DR 2530 PC provides highly detailed imaging for analyses and reporting. Its compact size of 250 x 300 mm and thin profile at 14.7 mm allow the detector to fit in smaller spaces, enabling imaging in confined areas. The non-glass design virtually eliminates expensive and time-consuming repairs while increasing utilization, uptime and productivity. The detector comes with tungsten shielding allowing a higher cumulative dose while preserving image quality, increasing panel life and usage. With the HPX-DR 2530 PC detector, critical defects can be evaluated and reported with confidence while increased processing speed and productivity help perform more inspections in less time.
The HPX-DR 2530 PC detector works with Carestream’s award-winning INDUSTREX Digital Viewing Software. The INDUSTREX software suite operates seamlessly across all Carestream NDT computed radiography (CR) and digital radiography (DR) modalities. Customers can easily add the new detector to their tool set of imaging equipment without having to purchase and learn new modules.
"At Carestream NDT, we are proud to add the HPX-DR 2530 PC to our innovation legacy. It is a game-changer for reliable, precise high-speed imaging in hard-to-reach locations, helping customers inspect pipes and other infrastructure where previously they weren’t able to benefit from the speed and productivity advantages of DR," said Marty Graen, Global General Manager for Carestream NDT.
"As we work with our customers in the oil and gas industry, corrosion over time can negatively impact pipes and pressure vessels, and the HPX-DR 2530 PC is superior addition to the non-destructive testing arsenal that will provide quick answers to our customers’ biggest challenges."
Carestream NDT is offering a two-year warranty with the HPX-DR 2530 PC, as well as a loaner service in the U.S. and Canada to minimize downtime and avoid the expense of purchasing a back-up detector.
