The CBGuard is working similar to X-ray systems in health diagnostics or at airports.
The system consists of an X-ray generator with tube, a receiver panel and a control unit. The generator produces artificial X-ray energy from electricity. The X-rays penetrate the running conveyor belt and then impinge on the detection board, an amorphous silicon imaging panel.
The process is similar to that of photodiodes in a digital camera.
An image from tens of thousands of grey scales, as per the individual structure, size, colour and position of each damage, is generated and assigned by the CBGuard software.
Virtually no additional radiation from CBGuard Life Extender
To use a CBGuard Life Extender is safe.
The radiation source is insulated. A safety zone with a fence at approx. 2 m distance around the unit needs to be provided. Beyond this fence, the radiation is less than 1 µSv/h (microSievert per hour).
The scanner is equipped with several safety devices. The system can only be started if a unique dongle and password are applied.
There is an interlocking system on the doors of the fence. Once the doors are opened, the generator is switched off.
The CBGuard does not contain any natural radionuclide material!
