CareStream NDT

HPX-PRO Portable Digital System

CR for Anywhere NDT Takes You

The HPX-PRO Portable CR System is designed for high throughput digital imaging in rugged NDT environments. It's a lightweight (35lbs/16Kg), portable solution that can be set-up in less than 5 minutes and process a weld in up to a minute, producing high-quality digital images for quick analysis and rapid final reporting. HPX-PRO is a complete solution using Carestream’s INDUSTREX software to scan, display and store your all your digital data.

HardWare features

Simple User Controls :Includes easy-to-read System Status, Power, and Ethernet Connectivity LEDs, with a separate LED scale for Battery Power.

Filter/Air Vents: Replaceable air filter to keep out dust and dirt.

Fold-up Feed Doors with Extensions: Both the entry and exit doors fold up to seal off the unit from dirt and dust when in transport or not being used. A magnet holds the doors closed. Each door has an extension to support up to a 17” long plate.

Detachable Handle: Can be removed via two Phillips screws to reduce height (to 14”).  Mobile film labs don’t have a lot of extra room and when you’re trying to fit something between the bottom and top cabinets every inch counts. 

Battery Holders: Includes powered mount for usage and storage mount for second battery, providing 4 hours of standby time and 45 minutes of imaging time per battery.

Mounting Bracket: Allows you to secure the unit to a mounting plate during transportation. The optional mounting bracket can be attached to the work surface enabling the HPX-PRO to be quickly snapped into a harness for transport on rough roads. At the end of the day simply remove it for safe storage in a climate-controlled environment.

Ethernet and Power Connections: Set up the unit in less than 5 minutes. Simply connect an Ethernet and power cable and you are ready to work.

Carry Strap: Comes with detachable strap for over-the-shoulder carrying in transport.

Software Features

Rapid Job Setup: With INDUSTREX Software setup of customer parameters, automated electronic FLASH creation on each image and automatic incremental shot numbering make getting ready to shoot fast and easy.

In Batch Mode, define shot parameters and input how many welds to shoot. Set-up the weld numbering and turn on the auto increment feature to name welds as plates process.

Image, Analyze & Approve in Seconds: Batch Mode was added to our INDUSTREX software so the HPX-PRO can keep up with film. Unlike other CR systems, the HPX-PRO scans and erases in one pass, thus eliminating wait-time for the plate to come back out during erase. The HPX-PRO is designed to process a weld a minute (based on 5-3/4” imaging plate length). Including scanning, erasing and image display on the monitor with a pre-set EDGE filter already applied.

Customized Reporting: Make customized multi-line or single shot-style reports in a matter of seconds. When creating the work report, simply select the welds to be included and click “create report”.  Generate a custom-made multi-line or single weld-style reports within seconds with pre-selected data.

Applications include:

  • Extreme weather conditions and environments. 
  • Rope Access inspections. 
  • Profile (corrosion) work through pipe racks and bridges. 
  • Pipeline Inspections. 
  • Petrochemical and Offshore. 
  • Aerospace - manufacturing and in-service.

HPX-DR High Performance Wireless Detector

Carestream’s new HPX-DR is a high energy (3MeV),high performance, compact and lightweight DDA detector. With rapid imaging and a potential for reduction of your overall shot time and help reduce overall consumable costs (for film or imaging plates). The HPX-DR features heavy-duty shielding designed specifically for high exposure NDT applications. It can operate in either a wireless or tethered configuration with rapid transfer of images, FASTER and EASIER than ever before.

Features

The HPX-DR detector is unique in design – coming standard with a rugged, weatherproof enclosure perfect for remote field work. Unlike other panels that claim a weatherproof design when used inside their protective carrying case, this detector has an IP57 enclosure rating without the protective case! With the HPX-DR you can stop wrapping your DDA panel in bags and keep working in rain, snow, mud or whatever Mother Nature throws at you!

REDUCED EXPOSURE – DDA panels are highly sensitive. Combine this with the ability to do frame averaging and you will likely be able to reduce your exposure time and still capture the sensitivity needed for your critical inspection task.

FASTER – Uses no disposable media in the process, eliminating cassette loading and unloading time, developing, processing and reloading for the next shot. The HPX-DR detector offers quick start up and calibration, and rapid image display after acquisition. Produce high quality digital images in seconds for immediate analysis.

EASIER – The HPX-DR detector is lightweight and compact with an all-weather design that is simple to operate. In the lab, it can be operated on a powered tether and in the field it can run 100% on battery. With the ‘hot swap’ feature the panel can remain on when changing batteries, increasing uptime.

WIRELESS – The HPX-DR detector can operate completely wireless giving the user full freedom of movement and minimizing set-up time on site. This is especially helpful for rope access teams looking for minimal weight, high sensitivity and a powerful wireless connection.

HIGH RESOLUTION – The HPX-DR images have a 139µpixel pitch and 139µspatial resolution that can reveal small details. All powered by our INDUSTREX image analysis software with the most advanced NDT post-capture tools for image measurements, enhancements and analysis.

Benefits: 

Wireless: Ultimate hands free with robust wireless (802.11 A/N or G) secure data transfer, long distance communication and live panel monitoring. Get the most out of your wireless with reliable, mobile access point for extended range and a strong wireless signal.

Compact Design: Rugged design with a durable aluminium frame and carbon fibre cover. Panel thickness is just 14.7 mm (0.58”) one of the thinnest in the industry making it easy to slide between objects.

Close-to-Edge Imaging: The HPX-DR image area is slightly offset, allowing you closer access to the panel edge for profile work. This panel can fit between pipes and captures near edge so you can see and measure the outer wall.

High Resolution: 139µpixel pitch is one of the best available, allowing for high quality imaging and defect detection. Multi-frame averaging improves the quality while reducing the overall noise in the image.

IP57 Enclosure: The only panel with this high a degree of protection against liquid. Unlike others that need a special case for protection from the harsh elements of field work, the HPX-DR is built to meet IP57 enclosure standards.

Indicators: Multiple indicator lights on the panel edge communicate panel status, battery information and wireless connectivity. Its easy for the user to see at a glance the condition of the panel.
