Paper Abstract

A set of electrolyte capacitors were inspected using x-ray micro-computed tomography (μ-CT) system developed at the Department of Physics Gadjah Mada University, Indonesia. Testing was done for three electrolyte capacitors. The one is in good condition and the other two are considered broken. Those were broken due to either high voltage operation or leakage of the tube. Under customized μ-CT inspection, 3-D presentations of the objects have been developed. The results showed that the image profiles, radiation attenuation profiles and linear attenuation coefficient distribution on top, middle and bottom area were able to determine the aluminum plate and electrolyte papers. Good electrolyte capacitor has higher radiation attenuation and nearly uniform across the core of the capacitor. This is in contrast with the broken capacitors.
