The service life of the DR tube is a concern of many users. Today we will talk about the service life of the DR tube, in the end how many years.
The tube is an important part of the DR filming system and the basic device for ray generation. There are cathodes, anodes and a sealed cooling system in the bulb tube. The life of the bulb tube is generally affected by the aging of the sealing system and the normal wear and tear of the anode target surface.
At present, medical DR is generally 125KV and 150KV. Under normal use, the general life span ranges from 100,000 to 200,000 seconds. Depending on the frequency of use, the service life is also different. Generally speaking, municipal hospitals can be used for about 8 years, and hospitals and outpatient clinics that are used less frequently will have a longer service life.
