GF Series

The GF series derivates from the Crawler technology and is providing a reliable and cost effective solution for price sensitive markets. These units have to be combined to one of the two available type of control units, CF2000 or Hand-X with very lightweight new generation of cables.


GFD 165

  • Product description
  • Main features
  • Key advantages
  • Most common applications

A number one hit for years, the GFD165 is the smallest unit of the GF series.

With a maximum of 160 kV and 5 mA, the GFD165 is a compact gas insulated unit designed for applications where size and weight matter. The GFD165 is the ideal machine for field applications where the unit needs to be frequently moved or inserted in tiny spaces. With regards to its 5mA and pulsed wave technology, the unit can penetrate medium to very thin materials, metallic or composites. It will easily surpass the poor contrast of Isotopes and will be a very good replacement in lower thickness ranges where Isotopes are generally not allowed.

This unit uses the same driving electronic and technologies as the CERAM but is equipped with the standard well proven glass tube of Balteau NDT.
