JME DXB:1 Digital X-Ray Buggy

PIPELINE CRAWLERS • PORTABLE X-RAY BETATRON • DIGITAL RADIOGRAPHY

JME would like to present our newest product range, the DXB:1 Digital X-Ray Buggy; designed to produce high-quality panoramic radiographs of circumferential welds in applications such as new pipelines. As a versatile and configurable system, it can also be utilised for use in various non-pipeline applications, such as the inspection of tank walls or other ferrous metal structures.

This digital system is a replacement for traditional film radiography; so no more chemical processing, dark rooms, or flaws associated with conventional radiography. With an articulating digital panel, the system is fully adjustable for a range of different radiused surfaces.

The DXB:1 includes a high-definition digital panel for instant verification of image quality and system settings. Images are digitally stored, preventing the need for film storage and enabling a permanent record to be saved within the control panel. These can be backed up via USB, a secondary hard-drive or using a Network connection, allowing the images to be sent to an off-site Radiographer seconds from acquisition.

With a rapid magnetic deployment system, the DXB can be positioned by a single person in less than a minute, dramatically increasing productivity on-site.
