Windchill and Aquachill Actively Cooled X-ray Sources

Increased Power Leads to Increased Line Speed and Throughput

The Aquachill and Windchill actively cooled X-ray sources are perfectly suited for inline X-ray inspection applications, with increased X-ray power enabling increased line speed and throughput. The higher flux output enables image acquisition times to reduce dramatically, allowing for faster and more accurate inspection of a wider range of materials.

The Aquachill and Windchill sources extend the power range of MXR’s Minifocus Packaged Tubes from 50W up to 150W, while also increasing the safe ambient maximum temperature. The industry-standard Minifocus Packaged Tubes have been rigorously tested and proven to be reliable and effective.

Different Cooling Methods for Different Applications

The Aquachill and Windchill offer two different cooling methods, each with its own unique advantages. The Aquachill uses a water-cooled heat exchanger to remove heat from the insulating oil, which makes it ideal for applications where high power output is needed but space is limited and the external ambient temperature is difficult to control. The Aquachill is capable of allowing a tube to run up to 150W in a compact design, making it a great choice for online X-ray inspection applications where increased power directly leads to increased line speed and throughput.

The Windchill utilizes a forced-air-cooled heat exchanger, which makes it ideal for applications where water is not readily available or where water cooling is not practical. The Windchill is also capable of allowing a tube to run up to 150W, making it a great choice for applications where space is not a constraint, and where the ambient air can be appropriately cooled, such as in laboratory settings or temperature controlled factory floors.

Efficient Oil Pumps for Effective Cooling

Both the Aquachill and Windchill use efficient oil pumps to pump the oil through a heat exchanger, which effectively cools down the X-ray tube to enable the higher power and longer service life.

The Aquachill and Windchill x-ray sources from MXR offer reliable and efficient solutions for a wide range of applications. With their high power output, compact design, and efficient active cooling systems, these sources are perfect for inline X-ray inspection applications where speed and accuracy are critical. Whether you choose the Aquachill or Windchill, you can be confident that you are getting a high-quality product that is backed by MXR’s commitment to quality and customer satisfaction.
