Carestream NDT Introduces HPX-PRO Portable CR System

The new HPX-PRO Portable CR system is designed to enhance mobile imaging with exceptional image quality, improved productivity and easy portability. The system is ideal for radiographically inspecting the joints in a pipeline.

This next-generation CR system is lightweight at just 35 pounds, and its compact size and design make it easy to move in and out of tight spaces such as mobile inspection labs. The HPX-PRO is ideal for a wide range of imaging with scan resolutions of 25, 50 and 100 microns.

The HPX-PRO can be operated off main power (AC 110/ 220v) or by using the on-board battery which can provide up to four hours of standby time and 45 minutes of run time. A replaceable air filter keeps out dust and dirt, and both the entry and exit feed trays fold up to seal the unit when not in use. An optional vehicle mounting bracket can be attached to a work surface enabling the HPX-PRO to be quickly snapped into a secure position for safe transport on rough roads.

The HPX-PRO’s software incorporates a new user interface designed to enable the operator to begin working fast. The unit sets up in less than two minutes using an Ethernet and power cable. On high production jobs such as pipeline inspection, the HPX-PRO can process a weld a minute when using (3x) 5 2/3-inch plates. This includes scanning, image display with a pre-set EDGE filter applied and plate erasing. Batch Mode functionality allows users to run imaging plates in batches while the system auto-numbers each plate. Improved tools allow for rapid image analysis and customized reporting in seconds using the single click image interpretation.

The HPX-PRO can also produce customized multi-line or single shot-style reports in a matter of seconds. When creating the work report, users simply select the welds to be included and click “create report.” There is no need to transpose data and concerns about making mistakes are minimized while time to create reports is also compressed. 888.777.2072,
