X-Ray Gamma & Radiography

Radiography is used to examine parts for internal imperfections using penetrating Gamma or X-ray. An X-ray generator or a radioactive isotope is used as the source of radiation. Radiation is directed through a test area and onto a film, through which an imperfection is indicated by a change in density on the film. These results in the clear detection of imperfections as they are more visible when compared to the results of the Ultrasonic Flaw Detection.

Technique capability:

  • All types of materials can be inspected
  • Produces the permanent evidence (radiography film)
  • Length of the defect can be sized
