The cooling of X-Ray equipment is crucial, especially when it’s part of a highly advanced three-dimensional imaging system. When Thermal Exchange Ltd was approached by a renowned manufacturer of X-ray inspection equipment to provide a bespoke x-ray cooling cooling solution, they immediately set about establishing their requirements and were soon designing the initial prototypes.
The first challenge was to provide a machine with sufficient cooling capacity in the available size envelope. Cooling power vs. size ratio however wasn’t the only problem; the customer also required a computer interface capable of monitoring an array of system conditions in order to protect their valuable equipment, and, inverter drive technology had to be employed to handle the variable load conditions of the fluid circuit. This all required considerable engineering and a great deal of computer modelling before an acceptable design was agreed.
