Diamond Sorting Technology Enhancements
 
X-ray diamond sorting depends mostly on local South African technology, with most manufacturers importing only components from abroad. This increases the running cost of machines and at Sortech we have researched and tested product enhancements in order to offer our clients more cost-effective alternatives.

rtX-ray MCA2000 Tube
Local metal & ceramic X-ray tube manufacturer rtX-ray (Pty) Ltd developed the MCA 2000 x-ray tube specifically for diamond sorting applications. We evaluated and tested the tube, and concluded that this particular tube offers many advantages to our clients, including:

• an extended lifespan;
• reduction of misalignment mistakes;
• a tube which is more economical and energy efficient;
• does not require maintenance and cleaning; and
• comes with a 2000 hour/12 month manufacturer warrantee.

For details on our testing and the tube’s advantages, please download our evaluation detailing the test set-up and results.

Zero Noise X-ray Generator
We supply two models of x-ray generators - the XLF600W and the DXM600W ultra compact model. These units are typically applied in plastics sorting, crystal inspection and diamond inspection. They also incorporate local and remote programming, monitoring, safety interlock, short circuit and overload protections.

Extremely stable voltage and emission current outputs result in significant performance improvements over previously available technology, making these generators the leaders in the market.

The XLF series offers a well regulated high voltage supply with output voltages to 40kv. A very low ripple is achieved with the advanced resonant conversion techniques.

The XLF series provides power control and support functions required for x-ray applications including a regulation ac filament supply referenced to the cathode.

The DXM600W is an ultra compact and light weight x-ray supply, at a very competitive price. The 300mm x 150mm x 120mm compact generator weighs a mere 6.4kg.

The DXM600W also offers a well regulated high voltage supply with output voltages to 40kv and 15mA. A very low ripple is achieved with the advanced resonant conversion techniques.
