Varex Linatron® K15A

The Linatron K-15 Linear Accelerator is a high-energy accelerator for nondestructive testing (NDT) and inspection. With outputs configurable up to 15 MeV, it can penetrate large castings and solid parts. At full output, dose rates can be configured for well over 12,000 rads/min-m. The K-15 is mountable on a fixed surface or yoke. The trunnion mounting feature allows the K-15 to be operated at a variety of orientations to make large object inspection much easier.

The K-15 has a wide variety of optional features to meet specific requirements. The optional filter wheel allows users to remotely select one of four different custom filters. In addition, variable collimators can adjust the beam from four independent axes. The retractable laser sighting tool will identify the precise location of the beam center.

Our high-energy Linatron™ (linear accelerators also known as Linacs) can be found in most cargo screening systems worldwide. They reliably generate the necessary energy to fully penetrate completely loaded shipping containers and provide excellent materials discrimination.

As Varex Imaging continues to innovate and advance imaging technologies, our portfolio of linear accelerators includes interlaced, dual-energy technology that offers even greater material discrimination than ever before, including options to alternate X-ray energies on a pulse-to-pulse basis.
