Providing OEM replacement parts for Linear Accelerators, Radiotherapy Simulators and Radiation Oncology equipment

Thyratron Tube

Electrical and mechanical parts are high in demand in the manufacturing industry. Whilst consumers rely on manufacturing firms to supply them with products for the home environment, the manufacturing firms themselves rely on suppliers from whom they purchase equipment and machinery parts to be used in the workplace. First class suppliers are of vital importance to a variety of businesses, which often require replacement parts at short notice to maintain their reputation.

One of the best suppliers in the industry is Radparts. Radparts specializes in supplying radiography equipment, as well as other parts often used by manufacturers. Based in the state of Michigan, Radparts supplies parts across America and beyond. They have a reputation for providing top quality products in a short amount of time - sometimes operating with emergency notice. Over 50,000 products are stocking in warehouses ready to be loaded onto the next outward flight when required.

One particular part supplied by Radparts in the thyratron tube. A thyratron tube is a type of tube filled with gas that can essentially be used as a high energy electrical switch, as well as a controlled rectifier. The gas in the tube allows it to carry a much larger current than similar vacuum tubes are able to, making it ideal for mass production purposes. A number of gases are suitable for use with a thyratron tube, including neon, hydrogen and xenon.

thyratron tubes are used in a variety of industrial applications, including motoring and arc-welding controllers. Often they are used for controlling electromechanical relays. Modern thyratrons can operate with currents of up to tens of thousands of amps.

Most commonly, thyratron tubes are used in radar equipment - most customers at Radparts buy thyratron tubes for this purpose. They can be used in particle accelerators; these are machines found most usually in hospitals and clinics, as they are used to treat cancer. The accelerators fire beams of high energy radiation towards a cancerous tumor, and this kills the cancer cells, whilst leaving surrounding cells untouched. The thyratron tubes can be used as pulse drivers within this machinery.

Thyratrons can also be used in high power television transmitters. They protect inductive output tubes from internal shorts by absorbing high voltage supply when circuit breakers are opened. Circuits including thyratrons in this way are known as 'crowbar' circuits.
