Whilst the ABX range of x-ray tube cooling systems have been specially adapted for X-Ray tube cooling applications, they can also be used for cooling other applications where heat removal is required, but the coolant temperature can be above ambient.
The ABX range of x-ray tube oil coolers are compact, self-contained units capable of providing oil at nominally 5 to 10 ⁰C above ambient and at constant pressure. They incorporate a high pressure oil pump, stainless steel coolant reservoir, temperature controller and a thermostatically controlled fan. Standard safety interlocks designed to protect the x-ray tube, include coolant over temperature, low level and low flow, all communicated via volt free contacts, which are monitored by the customer.
Additional system protection is provided via a unique slow start function whereby the pump pressure is limited on cold startup to protect the x-ray tube from over pressure.
Standard units can be adapted further to suit individual requirements.
