Overview
Industrial X-Ray & Allied Radiographers (I) Pvt. Ltd. popularly known as IXAR was founded in 1969 and humbly started its activities in Radiography, one of the Non-Destructive Testing methods.
The hard work, sincerity and dedication put together have brought the company to its present standing with the inclusion of all the NDT test methods under its wing. This includes test methods like Ultrasonic, Magnetic particle, Liquid Penetrant, and Eddy current. As a matter of pride, There is not a single project of a typical nature in India where IXAR has not worked and thus, the vast experience gained is the base for its full confidence to undertake any challenging job irrespective of size and technical complexities. 26th January 1985 was the landmark day for the company when the office was shifted to a new building measuring 5000sq, ft. floor space.

Radiography Testing

Radiographic Testing (RT) uses the short wavelength electromagnetic radiation passing through the material to behold for defect identification.  The radiation, which reaches the film after passing through the material, forms a shadow image on photographic film (radiograph).  Areas of low absorption (slag, porosity) appear as dark areas on the developed film (radiograph). Areas of high absorption (dense inclusions) appear as light areas on the developed film.

To perform industrial radiography, we utilize various X-ray machines and radioactive isotopes to record internal defects. IXAR is Equipped with the best X-ray crawler technology for 6” to 60” pipe and pipeline radiography and experienced personnel, we offer you the advantages of high radiography quality, high imaging sensitivity, low failure rate and high work efficiency.

In conventional radiography techniques, we use gamma radiation sources like Iridium-192, Selenium 75, Cobalt-60, Closed Proximity Radiation System and Real Time Radiography.

DIGITIZATION OF FILM:

At IXAR, we understand your need to have proper storage and easy accessibility to obtaining the films. That’s why we make the most of the latest technologies to meet your requirements. With KODAK LS75 and LS85 High-Resolution Laser Film Digitizer, we deliver high performance, image quality and reliability. In the process, our experts capture film images, which are later converted to high-resolution digital images. All in all, it ensures a high degree of precision, excellent density resolution and precision, and spatial resolution.

CLOSE PROXIMITY RADIOGRAPHY:

With a restricted area of radiation, Close Proximity Radiography significantly reduces the radiation risk and eliminates the need to evacuate the work area. So, the testing doesn’t affect the production targets and daily work schedules. Apart from making the most of the latest technology and systems, our personnel utilize SELENIUM-75 radioactive isotopes to provide high-quality radiographs.

Liquid Penetrant Testing

Liquid Penetrant Testing (PT) reveals surface flaws in non-porous material and metallic and non-metallic surfaces by the “bleed-out” of penetrating medium against a contrasting background. This is done by applying a penetrant to the pre-cleaned surface and flaw of the item being inspected.

The penetrant is applied to the surface and allowed to remain on the surface for a prescribed time (dwell time); the penetrant liquid will be drawn into any surface opening by capillary action. Following the removal of the excess penetrant, an application of the developer reverses the capillary action and draws the penetrant from the flaw. The resultant indications reveal the presence of the flaw so that it can be visually inspected and evaluated.

Materials that can be inspected using LPT include; metals (aluminium, copper, steel etc.), rubber, glass, and plastics. The LPT is used only to detect surface defects including -

  •  Fatigue Cracks
  • Grinding Cracks
  • Porosity
  • Laps
  • Seams
  • Pin holes in welds

Lack of fusion along the edge of the bond line

Through this technique, our experts evaluate the condition and quality of a component. With a wide variety of penetrant materials and a custom-made fluorescent penetrant inspection system, we provide both field and lab testing, with high-volume processing of many different parts with both fluorescent and visible penetrants.

Magnetic Particle Testing

Magnetic particle Testing (MT) is used to locate surface and slightly subsurface discontinuities or defects in ferromagnetic materials. Such flaws present in a magnetized part will cause a magnetic field i.e. flux, to leave the part.

If the magnetic particles are applied to this surface, they will be held in place by the flux leakage to give a visual indication. A magnetic particle test will be conducted by creating a magnetic field in a part and applying the magnetic particles to the test surface.

Our experts utilize Magnetic Particle Testing to detect surface and near-surface flaws and defects. It is fast and relatively easy to apply, and surface preparation is not as critical as compared to other NDT methods. We offer both on-site and in-house services as per your requirements.
