Does an industrial X-ray machine emit a lot of radiation?

X-ray machines are classified according to their working methods and can be divided into two categories, namely industrial frequency X-ray machines and high-frequency X-ray machines. The main difference between the two is that the power frequency X-ray machine is a UPS that uses a power frequency transformer as the rectifier and inverter components. The high-frequency X-ray machine uses high-frequency switching technology to replace the power frequency transformer in the rectifier and inverter with high-frequency switching components.
Generally, the penetrating power of high-frequency machines is stronger than that of industrial frequency machines, and the soft tissues can be photographed more clearly and less easily blurred. The radiation hazard of industrial frequency X-ray machines is greater than that of high-frequency X-ray machines.
Of course, if you do not need to photograph soft tissues or are not used on the human body, the power frequency X-ray machine is cheaper than the high-frequency X-ray machine. It can complete the corresponding photography tasks while being more cost-effective, so it is also a good choice.
X-rays are a kind of electromagnetic radiation with a very short wavelength. They have high penetrating power and can penetrate many materials that are opaque to visible light. Shielding should be set up between the radiation source and workers to reduce or eliminate radiation radiation. Shielding methods include lead clothing, lead aprons, lead caps, lead glasses, lead gloves, etc. Try to increase the distance between the radiation source and the scatterer (i.e. the worker) to reduce the radiation dose received. For every doubling of the distance, the radiation dose is reduced by 3/4. If you are inevitably exposed to radiation at work, the cumulative time should not exceed 30 minutes. We are a manufacturer of X-ray machines and their accessories.
