I would be interested to know what kind of unit this was and what 
applications it could be used for (Assuming Industrial Radiography).  If 
you don't want to broadcast to the entire group please send me a private

The vendor said the measured dose at 1 meter from a 450 kV, 6000 A X-Ray
unit with a 25 nanosecond burst is 18 milli-R.  Is there a way to 
the expected beam strength from this unit?  thanks
