X-Ray Generator

ceramkCeram Series

Balteau NDT is known for its unique and unequalled engineering and manufacture of portable equipment.

When you need a unique that can perform standard inspections as well as occasionally heavy walled ones, the CERAM 235 is the perfect compromise. Offering a maximum of 235 kV and 5 mA, the CERAM 235 combines all technological advantages of its big brother of the CERAM series and gives the flexibility of a unit smaller in size.

The CERAM 35 is delivering 300 kV and 5 mA with a duty cycle of 100% for an incredible image contrast even at full power. Thanks to a purposely designed tubehead and driving electronics, the CERAM 35 is offering to the user both duty cycle and an enormous power to fit any important requirements.

Gas insulation and right components selection have succeeded in producing one of the lightest X-Ray generator in the market.

No compromises have been made to component selection or cooling, the unit is able to run on a 100% duty cycle thanks to its purposely designed tubehead and driving electronics. These units can be combined to one of the two available type of control units (CF2000 or Hand X), and is extremely versatile.

 


 

gfdkGFD & GFC Series

With a maximum of 160 kV and 5 mA, the GFD165 is a compact gas insulated unit designed for applications where size and weight matter. The GFD165 is the ideal machine for field applications where the unit needs to be frequently moved or inserted in tiny spaces. With regards to its 5mA and pulsed wave technology, the unit can penetrate medium to very thin materials, metallic or composites. It will easily surpass the poor contrast of Isotopes and will be a very interesting replacement in lower thickness ranges where Isotopes are generally not allowed.

The GFC165 is a panoramic portable unit derived from our well known Crawler series but designed to be operated on field without mechanical carriage. This unit has then naturally inherited the reliability of the crawler technology of Balteau NDT. Fields of operations for this kind of equipment are generally piping industry, tanks, reservoirs and hollowed components, where a panoramic exposure can be done. It will easily surpass the poor contrast of Isotopes and will be a very interesting replacement in lower thickness ranges where Isotopes are generally not allowed.

The GFC205 is a panoramic portable unit derived from our well known Crawler series but designed to be operated on field without mechanical carriage. This unit has then naturally inherited the reliability of the crawler technology of Balteau NDT. The GFC205 can deliver up to 200 kV and 5 mA and can be classified in the range of middle power units available at Balteau NDT.

The GFC305 is a panoramic portable unit derived from our well known Crawler series but designed to be operated on field without mechanical carriage. This unit has then naturally inherited the reliability of the crawler technology of Balteau NDT. The GFC305 can deliver up to 300 kV and 5 mA and can be classified in the range of high power units available at Balteau NDT.

GFD and GFC series utilize the same driving electronic and technologies as the CERAM but equipped with the standard well proven glass tube of Balteau NDT. Thes units can be combined to one of the two available types of control units (CF2000 or Hand X). It is self recognized by any of our control units.

 

 



LLXkLLX Constant Potentio Series

The LLX160-DA is a high frequency constant potential Directional Air cooled, portable X-ray generator. LLX is the latest result of 65 years of expertise of Balteau in portable units combined to 25 years of Constant Potential equipment manufacture. LLX is the answer to your requirements for field inspection especially where quality requirements and speed of inspection are essentials.

With a superior dose output for an equivalent kV setting, LLX has been engineered to be more compact and lightweight than its competitors. The specific shape given to the head of the generator makes it easier to use on field where space is always restricted for instance in aerospace applications.

LLX is controlled by a full digital control unit (DC1) using the energy saving concept of the BALTOSPOT series and our well known Hand X® wireless remote control that is also available for your best safety.

 


 

Lightbox ImageCF 2000 Control Unit

This lightweight control unit is one of the two possible interface between any of the BALTOSPOT® pulsed wave generators and the operator. This power unit has specifically been designed to cope with harsh environment and bad power supplies. Indeed, it is able to handle bad power supplies like the one delivered by some power generators without affecting the dose output neither your image quality: the result is always a very stable and constant output no matter what power feeds the unit.

As always, BALTEAU is safety oriented and nothing has been left aside in that field. The waterproof ergonomic keypad and the large robust handles attached on the side are making it ideal for on site jobs as well as desktop uses. The 4 lines backlit clear display is giving at all time the necessary indications to the users about the status of operations. A convenient bright yellow cover is protecting your unit when not in use.

 

 



Lightbox ImageHAND-X Control Unit

Assuredly the most advanced of all control units, the HAND-X is able to drive any of the BALTOSPOT® generators. The HAND-X® is a revolutionary wireless remote control which can operate a generator remotely from up to 100 m in open fields. The purpose of this is certainly to gain freedom of moves in cluttered environment like shipyards of places where cables are at risk or never long enough because of mandatory twists and turns around existing infrastructures.

Having the control at your fingertips at all time including exposure is also of great advantage in terms of security as you can interrupt exposure at anytime if your surveyed area is not cleared anymore. The built in Dosimeter is ending the safety oriented features of the unit by providing the operator a reliable and convenient measuring device of exposure at the very place where he or she stands.

The Hand-X Power connected to the generator has specifically been designed to cope with harsh environment and bad power supplies.

 



Lightbox ImageDC-1 Controller

The DC1 control unit is derived from our well known CF2000 control unit and offers the majority of the same features but for controlling the BALTOSPOT Portable Constant potential series.

The unit can be distinguished from others by its two red handles and its slightly smaller size. Because power availability on sites is not that often easy to obtain, the DC1 unit uses the minimum power as possible. It also adapts to the different power supplies or variations without influencing the dose output or your image quality.
