RAILROADS

Harsh weather conditions and the continuous use of railroads affect the overall condition of railroad tracks. The tracks have to be inspected for cracks and defects to ensure safe operation. The consequences of negligent railroad maintenance can be severe and result in delayed traffic, costly repairs, and loss of material.

APPLICATIONS:
  • Identifying cracks and defects
  • Inspection of weld joints


SYSTEMS SUITED FOR RAILROADS
COMET X-ray inserts and tubes are well-suited for railroad applications - either as a part of the iXRS 100 - 600 kV modules or as systems like the PXS EVO series. The key is the right combination and configuration.

The high performing PXS EVO 300D has the X-ray power to penetrate massive rails, and combined with its compact size, it is ideal for any automated inspection vehicle.

Railroad inspections are carried out in all types of weather. The PXS EVO 300D meets the IP65 environmental protection standard, which means that it can operate seamlessly in both wet and dusty conditions. The system is also designed for use within a broad temperature range.
