X-ray detectors

Different line (1D) – and area (2D) – X-ray detectors are available.

  • Thales TH9438 9“ X-ray image intensifier
  • Perkin Elmer RID1024 40 x 40 cm² area detector
  • application specific applied X-ray intensifying screens


For image reconstruction and analysis serveral improved proprietary software algorithms are available.

Areas of application

Main field of application of the microfocus X-ray setups are the non-invasive radiographic, radioscopic and/or tomographic investigation of multiphase flow phenomena in non-transparent (opaque) and inaccessible fluids, in particular in the context of reactor safey research, process optimization and fundamental research in the field of liquid and solidifying metals and metal alloys.
