Abstract
Rotating anode X-ray tube radiographic ratings have historically been established as a single set of exposure curves intended to provide adequate tube life over a wide range of applications. The problems encountered with this approach in modern radiographic techniques are described, with emphasis on the permissible latitude in the parameters which influence tube ratings and on the dynamic nature of actual tube ratings due to changes in the base temper-ature of the target over the specified range of heat stored in the anode. The use of two radiographic ratings is proposed, the choice of which will be dependent on the level of anode heat storage expected in the primary usage of the tube, an approach which will provide an improved basis for establishing more accurate ratings for the specific application of the rotating anode X-ray tube.
