Polaris 500KV X-Ray Sub System

The Power to Penetrate    

Kimtron’s Polaris® 500 Constant Potential X-ray Sub System consists of a 500kV Generator set, Controller & I/O Box, 5000-OA Tube-Cooler™, HV Cables and a 500kV X-ray Tube. The system is supplied as an integrated, tested and optimized package to insure trouble free installation and rapid production startup. A perfect low cost solution for applications requiring greater depth of penetration than all competitive 450kV systems. The Polaris® 500 can do the job in several applications, filling the gap and eliminating the need to use higher cost linear accelerators. The system is capable of generating 3mA at 500kV (limited only by the x-ray tube).
