Can the X-ray machine still be used if it leaks oil?

X-ray machines are common equipment used in hospitals to examine coronary heart disease, diabetes, chest and other diseases. But sometimes, X-ray machines that have been used for a long time may leak oil. So the question is, can the X-ray machine continue to be used if it leaks oil?
First, you need to understand how the X-ray machine works. The X-ray machine produces images by penetrating the body through electromagnetic waves generated by electron tubes. The electron tubes need to be cooled by coolant, otherwise they are prone to overheating. Lubricating oil is an indispensable part of the operation of X-ray machines. If the X-ray machine leaks oil, it is necessary to analyze the cause of the oil leakage and replenish the lubricating oil in time. Otherwise, it will have a negative impact on the operation of the X-ray machine and even cause the equipment to not be used normally.
The reasons for oil leakage in X-ray machines may be as follows:
1. Aging If the X-ray machine is used for a long time, the chemical substances in the coolant will react and produce precipitation, which will increase the resistance in the tube and cause the pressure in the oil pool to rise, which will lead to oil leakage.
2. Quality issues: If you choose coolant or lubricating oil of poor quality or that does not meet the regulations, it may leak into the equipment, causing oil leakage in the X-ray machine.
3. Usage: After long-term use, the vibration will increase day by day. If the screws, pipes and other parts of the equipment are not tightened in time, it may also cause oil leakage in the X-ray machine.
To sum up, if there is oil leakage in the X-ray machine, it needs to be checked promptly and lubricated. At the same time, the pipes, screws and other parts need to be inspected and maintained. If you ignore the operating specifications and simply perform maintenance or blindly replenish lubricating oil without investigating the cause of oil leakage, the failure of the X-ray machine is likely to worsen, causing the equipment to be unable to continue to be used. Therefore, when using the X-ray machine, you must pay attention to the daily maintenance and upkeep of the equipment. Whatsapp:+86 18953613955. Email:
