CRxFlex Computed Radiography Scanner

Manufacturer: Baker Hughes (a GE Company)

Proven Computed Radiography Scanner - now upgraded with better performance

Designed specifically for applications in non-destructive testing, the CRxFlexTM is optimized for usage with both isotopes and X-ray sources. The system versatility can be seen through the premium performance across a wide range of applications.

The new CRxFlex™: a reliable field-proven platform with upgraded core technology for

  • Improved Noise Performance 
  • Excellent Image Quality
  • DICONDE compliant image analysis and data management

The CRxFlex phosphor scanner also offers extremely wide dynamic range and high signal-to-noise ratio, which typically results in streamlined technique development and higher component throughput. A broad range of thicknesses can be inspected in a single exposure with the wide dynamic range making the CRxFlex a perfect match for the inspection of castings and/or piping for erosion/corrosion. This capability also leads to less exposures and fewer re-takes.

One of the more unique features that the CRxFlex offers is it’s ability to be utilized with either hard cassettes (in which the phosphor imaging plate never leaves the cassette) or the ability to scan any size of phosphor screen up to 35 x 43 cm (14 x 17 inches): any unique shape or size: circles, triangles, rectangles, pie shape, etc. These unique sizes can be exposed using a soft, flexible cassette and then scanned by the CRxFlex.

The robust CRxFlex has a small tabletop footprint and is designed for reliable operation in the harshest of NDT environments. Its modular internal construction allows ease of servicing and features long mean-times-between-failures (MTBF) and maintenance (MTBM) — minimizing downtime and maximizing uptime.

Superior Image Quality
Because of its specially designed optics, true square 50 micron pixel size and its unique 30 micron laser spot size, the CRxFlex can guarantee image quality with excellent IQI sensitivity. This superior image quality is supported by its BAM certificate that states that CRxFlex is IP Class Special/60 (ASTM E2446-05) and/or IP Class 1/60 (EN 14784-1) — ideal for weld inspection.

Horizontal Transport System
The CRxFlex has a state-of-the-art, horizontal transport system that is designed to have limited, or no direct contact with the imaging plate during the scanning process. The result of this is that there is no imaging plate damage and/or physical wear that occurs during the scan. The phosphor scanner can accept imaging plates that are used with soft cassettes and/or can be used in a hard cassette for applications in which the imaging plate would not have to be removed from the cassette — extending the life of the imaging plate.

Imaging Plates
Our offering consists of different types of phosphor imaging plates. The plates have special/proprietary protection layers that prevent scratches and damage. Odd sizes and/or shapes up to 35 x 43 cm (14” x 17”) imaging plates and associated inserts can be manufactured to support your specific application and scanned by the CRxFlex.

Rhythm® Software
The CRxFlex, in conjunction with the GE’s Rhythm software, allows users to acquire, review, report and archive inspection data. The DICONDE-compliant Rhythm platform also permits image enhancement and data sharing to provide significant improvements in productivity and faster identification of defect indications.
