Non-Destructive Testing

Comet has been the leading manufacturer of metal ceramic X-ray tubes for NDT applications for more than 40 years. Comet offers the broadest portfolio of X-ray sources in the entire NDT market.

X-Ray in the Main NDT Applications

We make powerful tubes for film application as well as high-power (HP) tubes for digital imaging where resolution and X-ray dose are critical for failure detection.

In applications for low density materials such as carbon composites, Comet sources deliver high mA in order to achieve the required contrast. High density materials require high kV to penetrate the material and enough dose to obtain the necessary contrast for failure detection.
