See Through the Toughest Conditions

Scandiflash Flash X-Ray (FXR) Systems are valuable imaging solutions to see through tough research conditions – fire, smoke, metal and other materials during dynamic events –  ballistics, hypervelocity impact testing, detonics (ordnance velocity & explosives research), and more, using intense X-ray pulses (flashes) for ultra high-speed imaging. Exposure times ranging from 20–35 nanoseconds and 1.5, 2.5 & 4 millimeter focal spot sizes produce extremely sharp radiographs for analysis.

Scandiflash FXR systems feature a wide voltage range – 75 to 1200 kilovolts – strong enough to penetrate 3–60 millimeters of steel for your radiographic research. A Scandiflash SXA Soft X-ray Adapter Kit can be fitted to Flash X-ray tubes to produce soft X-rays for optimal penetration and contrast for low energy radiation research applications that require imaging through lighter materials – plastics, thin metals & more.

Cineradiographic Flash X-Ray Imaging

Scandiflash Multi-Anode Flash X-ray tubes (MAT) are the perfect solution for producing cineradiographic (sequential) imagery for research. Scandiflash MAT FXR tubes configured with arrays of four, six or eight anode/cathode pairs are available for Scandiflash SCF150, SCF300, SCF450 and SCF450S FXR systems. The anode/cathode pairs generate high-intensity pulses of X-radiation, individually or in sequence – with enough energy to penetrate 3–34 millimeters of steel. Combined with high-speed video cameras with 10,000–200,000 frame rates or ultra high-speed video cameras with 2 million plus frame rates and you’ll have a Flash X-ray system capable of cineradiographic imaging through a variety of materials for your research.

Scandiflash FXR System Components

everything you need to get the job done right

FXR Control Cabinet & System

A computerized control system is used for Scandiflash FXR Systems. The electronics units are microprocessor controlled and connected to a laptop/desktop control computer via Ethernet. All operating parameters can be set and read using the control computer. Where safety reasons or facility layout call for remote control, the FXR system can be operated from long distance via fiber optic cable.

Power Distribution Unit – PDU4
The PDU4 contains a high-voltage power supply and is controlled by the FXRC4 unit.

Flash X-Ray Channel Control Unit – FXRC4
Each system channel has a Flash X-ray channel control unit featuring the following functions:

  • Delay Generator – range 0–999.999 ms in 1 µs increments with two trigger modes (contact closure & pulse)
  • Time Interval Meter (TIM) – 0.05 µs time resolution
  • Dry Air Pressure Control – for insulating high-voltage pulser modules
  • Dielectric Gas Pressure Control – for insulating high-voltage cable connectors
  • Ion Pump Power Supply (IPPS) – protection circuit
  • System Monitoring Unit – monitors pulse in each channel and may be sourced from up to six checkpoints in the FXR System:
    1. Trigger input to delay generator,
    2. Delay generator output,
    3. Trigger amplifier output,
    4. Pulser output,
    5. Pulser to X-ray tube cable output,
    6. X-ray tube output (optional)

Switch Unit – SU8
The SU8 is an 8-channel Ethernet switch that handles communication between control computer and FXRC4 units. Featuring a built-in Ethernet to fiber optic modem to use fiber optic cable for long distance operation. An optional SU8E with Extended Ethernet is available for long distance remote control.

Pulsers (pulse generators)

Scandiflash FXR Systems use pulsers (high-voltage pulse generators) to generate high-intensity X-ray bursts (pulses) for radiography. Scandiflash pulsers are modified Marx surge generators – voltage multiplication is accomplished by charging capacitors in parallel and discharging them in series with spark gaps.

★ ★ ★ ★ ★

Grounded metal tanks are used to house pulser components – capacitors, spark gap switches and charging network. Pulser tanks are precision-built and pressurized with eco-friendly compressed dry air to improve insulation and control over spark gap switch breakdown voltage. The exceptional shielding properties of Scandiflash’s tanks, combined with the coaxial nature of capacitor discharge, lead to unusually low external radiofrequency (RF) electromagnetic radiation levels.

Flash X-Ray Tubes – straight & right-angle

Scandiflash stainless steel Flash X-ray tubes are small vacuum chambers with a signature red ion pump and internal user serviceable anodes, cathodes, X-ray tube windows & O-rings. Scandiflash Flash X-ray tubes are available in two configurations, straight and right-angle for the ultimate Flash X-ray exposure.

★ ★ ★ ★ ★

Scandiflash FXR Systems feature cold cathode Flash X-ray tubes with a robust design and small focal spot size – creating the ideal Flash X-ray tubes for recording radiographs of ballistics and hypervelocity impact testing. Flash X-ray tubes XT150, XT300L, XT450L & XT450SL and their right-angle versions, are self-contained X-ray sources, ready for remote operation, and connected to pulsers with a flexible, solid core high-voltage coaxial cable. The Scandiflash FXR SCF1200 System with the PG1200 pulser features an internal XT1200A Flash X-ray tube connected directly to the pulser output.

Scandiflash Multi-Anode FXR Tubes (MAT)

Cineradiographic Flash X-ray Imaging Made Easy

Scandiflash Multi-Anode Flash X-Ray Tubes (MAT) are used for cineradiographic (sequential) Flash X-ray imaging – when closely spaced X-ray sources (anode/cathode pairs) are needed to minimize parallax for sequential exposures.

Scandiflash MAT X-ray tubes are unique vacuum chambers configured with an array of four, six or eight interchangeable anode/cathode pairs for sequential Flash X-ray imaging. Connected to a series of pulsers via high-voltage coaxial cables, the anode/cathode pairs generate high-intensity pulses of X-radiation, individually or in sequence – with enough energy to penetrate 3–34 millimeters of steel, depending on the voltage range of the Scandiflash FXR system. Combined with high-speed video cameras with 10,000–200,000 frame rates or ultra high-speed video cameras with 2 million plus frame rates and you’ll have a Flash X-ray system capable of cineradiographic imaging through a variety of materials for your radiographic research.
