Yxlon Reports Large Demand for Rod Anodes in Nondestructive Testing

June 18, 2009

GARBSEN, GERMANY - Yxlon International, a supplier of industrial X-ray inspection systems and industrial CT (computed tomography) solutions for the nondestructive testing of materials (NDT), is increasing its sales of standard rod anodes.

Rod anodes from Yxlon supplement the high-performance microfocus X-ray tubes from the Feinfocus product family. The technologies incorporated into the anodes make them the ideal solution for testing materials at “hard-to-reach” places, for example when inspecting jet aircraft engines or welding seams inside pipes. These robust rod anodes are available as accessories for transmission target or direct-beam target tubes. A stable X-ray intensity is reliably assured by perfected mechanics. Above and beyond this, interchangeable targets possessing different beam characteristics ensure a wide-ranging field of deployment.

The appropriate Yxlon standard rod anodes for nearly any application can be delivered within the shortest time frame due to an extremely flexible modular building-block system based on years of experience in developing rod anodes.
