The only system in the world that can measure the distribution of wash coats, soot, ash, and substrate damage from regeneration
3DX-RAY is believed to be the only company in the world with the technology to be able to measure and analyze, non-destructively, the microscopically thin and expensive coatings and fills in diesel particulate filters and catalytic converters. They are also alone in being able to measure distributions of wash coat, soot, ash and regeneration damage.
The company has launched a set of non-destructive x-ray tools for its MDXi x-ray inspection system to allow engineers to use this cutting-edge technology.
The new ability enables manufacturers in the billion dollar catalytic industry to make substantial improvements in performance at the same time as reducing costs. The tools additionally work even when the container is made from steel plate. Previously only destructive testing has been possible.
Diesel Particulate filters need to achieve high filtration efficiency, low filtration backpressure, and fast regeneration. Design engineers need to maximize the efficacy of catalysts and balance the high loading needed for performance, with the low cost demanded by the market.
The 3DX-Ray MDXi system can accurately measure distances and alignments, the real-time database it produces can be linked into a QC, SPC or SCADA system. It uses the company's patented line-scan technology, which eliminates the need for conventional, expensive, panel x-ray detectors.
The system can be supplied with an optional 3D computerized tomography package.
