超过l00小时未曾使用和曾经从仪器上拆下的X光管，必须进行老化。 New X-ray tubes that have not been used for more than 100 hours and have been removed from the instrument must be aged. Fast automatic aging of X-ray tubes that have not been used for more than 24 hours but less than 100 hours.
2. Aging purpose
Check the high-pressure capability of the X-ray tube . It can improve the vacuum in the X-ray tube and remove particles in the X-ray tube with lower energy.
3. Aging method
Manual aging is performed at a rate of 5 to 10 kV every 1 to 3 minutes, from the lowest voltage and the lowest current to the highest voltage and the lowest current.
