Inspectrum Testing Inc. offers radiographic testing in Grande Prairie. We examine various manufactured components to verify the internal structure and integrity of the specimen. This process is done by using either x-rays or gamma rays, thereby considered as non-destructive testing. Non-destructive testing (NDT) can be used for:
Inspection of in-service weld and material
Inspection of heavy wall vessel
Fabrication and repair of tanks
Erosion or corrosion check on valves
Concrete examination of re-bar and conduits
Types of NDT Radiography
NDT radiography is categorized on the basis of the process and the technology used:
Computed radiography: It is an NDT method done using phosphor-imaging plates to store the inspection results. This process can be done on the same materials and in similar situations as standard radiography.
Digital radiography: It is the latest technology in NDT in which the images are automatically transferred to a computer. Therefore, you can quickly evaluate and propose a diagnosis. In comparison to computed radiography, it is a bit expensive and is restricted to the use of flat-panel detectors for image capturing.
Real-time radiography: It is an NDT method in which an image is produced electronically instead of on a file. In this process, there is very little lag time between the item being exposed to radiation and the resultant image.
