KODAK INDUSTREX Digital Imaging Plates

PlatesKODAK INDUSTREX Flex GP, HR and XL Blue Digital Imaging Plates (IPs) are designed for computed radiography in non-destructive testing applications. These plates employ storage phosphors which capture and retain a latent image in direct proportion to an exposure of ionizing radiation. This latent image is subsequently read out by scanning with a red laser, which stimulates the emission of blue light, in a phenomenon known as photostimulated luminescence.
The imaging plate can be loaded into a flexible cassette and used with metal screens of appropriate thickness. They offer the flexibility of film without the need for wet processing, so you can capture and read images quickly and easily, both in the field and in the lab.
You can manipulate the images if needed and store or share them digitally, and they work with KODAK CR Systems including the KODAK INDUSTREX ACR-2000, ACR-2000i and HPX-1 Digital Systems.

KODAK INDUSTREX Flex GP, HR and XL Blue Digital imaging Plates are:

•Flexible—Wrap around most shapes.
•Sharp—Better resolution than high-speed films, and a suitable replacement for many applications.

•Available in Multiple Sizes—To cover a wide range of applications.
•Portable—With a KODAK INDUSTREX Digital System, image capture in remote areas is easier than ever.
•Versatile—Use in a rigid or flexible cassette.
•Efficient—Phosphor plates can be erased and reused thousands of times, require less exposure than film, and provide faster image access.
•Certified—When used with KODAK INDUSTREX ACR-2000, ACR-2000i and HPX-1 Digital Systems, both plates meet requirements for the highest system class: IP 1/100 according to EN 14784-1 and IP Special/100 according to ASTM E 2446.

Carestream Industrex HPX-PRO Portable Digital System

THPX PROhe HPX-PRO is the smallest, lightest CR system designed specifically for NDT use. Weighing in at just 35 lbs (16 kg) and with a less than a 12-inch width (31cm) can be hand-held with ease.

 

CaseThe HPX-PRO is designed for portable industrial applications, from ergonomically engineered handles to the shock- and vibration-resistant engineering. It enables technicians to take Computed Radiography to the next level – anywhere they work – without compromising image resolution, sensitivity, or dynamic range.
