Tomsk Polytechnic University (TPU) has signed $600,000 worth of contracts with German and US companies to supply induction electron accelerators (betatrons) used in quality control and customs control devices, news agency RIA Novosti reports citing the university.

Betatrons are also used in industry to control weld and cast strength, as well as in inspection complexes.

TPU has reportedly signed a $260,000 contract with Germanys Heimann Smiths to supply various parts, including 70 high-voltage injection blocks and accelerating chambers to be used in inspection systems.

The second, $340,000 contract for two betatrons was signed with US company V.J. Technologies, Inc. Those will be used for radiographic inspection of weld joints, repairs of boiler houses and energy complexes, heavy castings control, iron concrete bridge towers, and other construction projects.

Under plans, in the fall the university will hold talks with partners from the USA, England, Malaysia, India, Turkey and China.
