Microfocus X-ray inspection in energy industry
Main drivers for energy industry are safety, efficiency, and the environmentally friendly generation of energy. This also involves the transport and storage of energy. Energy production is often connected with high pressures and high temperatures.

All components involved in this process need to be carefully controlled by using different X-ray inspection techniques. Microfocus X-ray inspection is involved where the accessibility is difficult or the acceptable defect sizes fall below certain limits.

Typical Applications

Non-destructive X-ray inspections in energy industry

Non-destructive microfocus X-ray inspection in energy industry, e.g.: 
  • Wind power stations (power converters, IGCT, IGBT)
  • Pressure valves and pressure vessels (weld seams)
  • Gas turbines (weld seams)
  • Tube-to-tubesheet (TTS) welds of heat exchangers

Recommended microfocus X-ray tubes for X-ray inspections in energy industry

For testing of power electronics components we recommend our product line THE. For testing of weld seams we developed various microfocus rod anode tubes. Please refer to the product lines RA, RAC, and RAC Superfocus.
