STXR-10 X-Ray Thickness Gauge

Universal Light Gauge X-ray

The STXR-10 X-ray is a new X-ray sensor for a wide variety of aluminum sheet products as well as light-gauge steel, stainless, copper, and brass. STXR-10 is a compact and light-weight modular sensor. It is mechanically identical to our STXR-1 foil gauge - It differs from the STXR-1 only in its tuning and application.

The STXR-10 thickness gauge can be mated with either the SenTek SenTek 1000 or the SenTek 500 Gauge Electronics Platforms for a complete and competent gauging system.

The STXR-10 and the 500 system are the main components of our new 535 modular X-ray gauge.

Compact X-ray Source: Our STXR-10 X-ray source assembly is a compact assembly with a unique air vent/air flow arrangement. With low-volume forced-air cooling, the STXR-10 will operate comfortably in ambient temperatures of 80 to 90 degrees C and beyond.

Isotope-to-X-ray conversion: The very small size of the STXR-10 sensor components makes it possible to fit the entire X-ray assembly in the source housing of an older isotope gauge. This permits us to convert older isotope gauges to modern high-speed X-ray gauges without any mechanical changes to the process line.

For new gauge installations, the very small size of the STXR-10 permits it to be installed in low-profile, narrow housings and C-frames.

Thermal Stability and Conditioning:  All of SenTek's gauge sensors, including the STXR-10, can be equipped with external, hardened thermistors for air gap temperature monitoring. They can also be equipped with heated air wipes and air columns for even greater thermal stability.
