In-House X-ray System


Tabletop X-Ray Generator with Three Cameras

The PANalytical PW3830 (sealed tube) x-ray generator employs a long fine focus (PW 2773/20) Cu x-ray tube for the generation of CuK a x-rays. Typical operating conditions are 40kV, 20-40 mA. The tube is cooled by a Haskris WW635 chiller, which runs off the building chilled water lines. Three separate instruments are connected to the single tube through a four-port shutter (PW 1316/92), all contained within a home-built interlocked safety cage ("blue box"). The three instruments (described in the three links above) can be run independently, and if necessary, simultaneously.
