X-Ray & Gamma Radiography

Radiography involves the use of penetrating Gamma or X-ray to examine parts for internal imperfections. 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. This results in the clear detection of imperfections as they are more visible as compared to the results of Ultrasonic Flaw Detection.

Technique capability:

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