New X-Ray Systems Feature Beryllium-Free Targets

Published: Sunday, April 25, 2004 - 22:00

In an effort to increase the safety of its products, phoenix|x-ray Systems + Services Inc. has created beryllium-free targets in all of its X-ray systems with open tubes.

The new targets eliminate the potential harmful residual effects that can come from X-ray exposure to beryllium targets. They also provide an added advantage to boards and components that are succeptible to overexposure and irradiation. The new material used in the targets acts as a filter, absorbing a portion of the X-ray and minimizing potential damages to samples.

The low-dose method employed by phoenix|x-ray combined with the new targets lessens the risk of exposure to various radiations and extends quality operation. Systems featuring the beryllium-free targets are available on any phoenix|x-ray system.
