FAQs Monoblock® X-Ray Generators

Will the X-Ray tube last forever?

No, X-ray tubes are a consumable device and will not last forever. The amount of time it will last is due to several factors including, but not limited to: proper seasoning, cooling, X-ray hours, and X-ray tube quality. If you have an application that requires many hours of X-ray operation (X-ray ON) over the course of a year (>3000 hours), it’s beneficial to let Spellman know so that your Monoblock® design can take this into consideration and expectations are understood.
