Now in Canada: JME PXB7.5M Portable X-ray Betatron

It’s Here!

We’ve known it’s been coming and we may have even shared a demonstration with you, but now we are pleased to say it is finally here.  Following a thorough review from the Canadian Nuclear Safety Commission, the JME PXB7.5M Portable X-Ray Betatron has been approved for sale in the Canadian market.  And we are pleased to say it’s available at IR.


About the Betatron

The PXB7.5M Portable X-Ray Betatron is designed to produce high energy ionising radiation for industrial radiographic non-destructive testing.  Other than the cooling fan, it contains no moving parts and no circulating liquids.  JME’s full range of Betatron systems have been supplied for a wide variety of applications in the NDT industry. They’ve been used for the inspection of large forgings, castings, valves, beams, ships hulls, pressure vessels, engine blocks, thick welds, composites, reinforced concrete buildings, bridges–the opportunities are endless.


Advantages

JME’s Betatron systems have many advantages over a comparative Linac system. To start, the form factor of the Betatron is small and portable compared to a traditional fixed installation. This smaller format means the Betatron can be easily used in a number different locations.

The Betatron also features an adjustable energy output that provides the scope to undertake a wide variety of inspection tasks–all within a single unit. That means JME’s Betatron system is a cost-effective and flexible solution to a wide variety of inspection needs.


About JME

JME is known around the globe as the market leader for the development and manufacture of high quality inspection systems. They have supplied many industries for over 30 years, and have become known as a premium brand with a reputation for reliability and innovation. IR Supplies and Services offers JME’s Pipeline Crawlers–and now the Betatron–across Canada.

You can find out more, or even arrange for a demonstration, by contacting one of our business development representatives.

Oh Canada, The Land of the Free

Oh Canada, the land of the strong and the free. Being free is immensely important to Canadians, but are we? Recent political changes have us wondering just how free we are. Long-standing conservative strongholds have moved to the other extreme and we now have a sharp movement to the left. Small minority groups have more say it seems than the larger Canadian populations, and some provinces seem to be holding others hostage in a confederation that seems to be eroding at the edges, as minority local interests override national ones.

When your job is to ensure quality you better exhibit it or sooner or later someone’s going to question your work.

The Most Secure Place in the World is in a Prison

I was recently lent a book by a friend of mine. He is a follower of my blogs and picked up on my leanings towards geography as the reason for most of the politics around the world. The book is called Prisoners of Geography written by Tim Marshall, a former foreign correspondent for British Sky News. It is an excellent book and an easy read and though I haven’t finished it yet, I would recommend it to anyone who wants to understand how geography and history shaped and continues to shape, what happens in our world today.

In 2004 IR started out in the retail NDT business. Our main focus was Industrial Radiography Supplies and Services and so that was also chosen to be our name. We thought the name said everything and our business plan was to become the best at what we knew, we knew the most about. There was a lot going on in radiography back then: supply problems, new security initiatives, lab issues, and us, IR.

China and the USA: Confrontation Long Overdue

The interesting thing about geopolitics is not so much how geography dictates the imperatives of the nation state but how those imperatives have led to the relationships with neighbours and even far away nations that may impact their interest in some way. I also find it interesting how the pursuit of the interests of a nation may look to their people to be shallow or callous, even when they are absolutely necessary.
