Products & Services
Radiography & NDT of Welds
IMAGE PROCESSING - FILM OR DIGITAL
Scan-X flexible screen scanner converts the image to a digital image for immediate viewing with no chemicals required.
Film radiography is still used for it's rugged, low cost and permanent record benefits and we maintain two full web labs.
X-RAY USING SPERRY PORTABLE 160kV GENERATOR OR GOLDEN ENGINEERING XRS3
The Sperry portable x-ray system produces the finest quality radiographic images especially for aluminium but also steel up to 20mm. Excellent on high pressure gas pipeline welds and other critical applications.
The XRS3 is ideal for flash radiography and profile radiography of piping for detection of corrosion under insulation (CUI)
GAMMA RADIOGRAPHY USING IRIDIUM 192 OR SELENIUM 75
Gamma radiography is extremely portable, doesn't require power and is normally the method of choice for site work.
Iridium 192 is the higher energy version and effective for steel up to 80mm thick and film radiography.
Selenium 75 is only effective up to 40mm thick however with much lower safety distances and better sensitivity is the choice for digital radiography.
Some of our other NDT services include
- Ultrasonic examination of welds, shafts, bolts, plate.
- Ultrasonic thickness testing by A and B Scan
- Magnetic particle examination of welds
- Penetrant examination of welds
- Eddy current testing of gears where total cleaning is unwanted
