Super Quality Services commitment of making technological advances in the field of NDT has led to the first to introduce the use of Betatron 7.5MeV in the Indian industrial radiographic Inspection Systems. Read more about Betatron here.

The PXB 10 M contains no moving parts (excluding cooling fan) and no circulating liquids, radiation outside the main beam are low, so safe working distances are moderate. After demarcation of dose rate boundaries, the betatron may be used at external sites or in fabrication workshops with little or no additional screening.

  1. The PXB 10 M produces radiographs of very high contrast, sensitivity and resolution. HLV STEEL: 32mm
  2. The PXB 10 M is recommended for radiographic testing of weld joints and castings with a steel thickness of 50 to 360mm, concrete and other materials from 200 to 1200mm.
  3. The irradiation field equals 250mm x 250mm @ 1M focal distance. In operation the PXB 10 M has no need for compensating filters that improves the uniformity of the radiation field.
  4. The PXB 10 M is far less costly than other NDT accelerators such as 'Linacs'.
  5. The PXB 10 M replaces cobalt isotope gamma sources which may not give acceptable quality and require costly periodic replenishment.


Large forgings, castings, valves, beams, ships hulls, pressure vessels, engine blocks, billets, thick welds, composites, military hardware, munitions, propellants, reinforced concrete buildings and bridges and much more.
