Radiography Testing Information

Radiography (X-ray) is a non-destructive testing (NDT) method that examines the volume of a specimen. Radiography (X-ray) uses X-rays and gamma-rays to produce a radiograph of a specimen, showing any changes in thickness, defects (internal and external), and assembly details to ensure optimum quality in your operation.

We offer a broad range of Industrial radiographic equipment. We will work with you to identify the most appropriate solution to ensure optimum technique performance, speed and economy for your application.

GE Wireless Digital X-ray Detector is Available in Two Sizes

Measures or detects internal defects and variations, porosity, inclusions, cracks, lack of fusion, corrosion, geometry variation, density changes, misassembled and misaligned parts.

Advantages
  • Permanent records
  • Portable
  • Geometry variation does not effect direction of radiation beam
Disadvantages
  • Radiation hazard
  • Expensive
  • Trained operators needed
  • Linear defect may be missed
  • Access needed to at least two sides of the part
