Radiographic testing is a very common non-destructive testing (NDT) inspection method for its versatility in identifying a wide variety of flaws on different materials and its capacity to generate a permanent record of every inspection. One of the greatest advantages of radiography testing is that it can be used on almost any material and can reveal discontinuities located on or below the surface. Inspectrum Testing Inc. offers industrial radiography in Grande Prairie. We examine various manufactured components to verify the internal structure and integrity of the specimen.
Our experienced radiographers work within strict safety guidelines. We use our years of expertise to assess if an irregularity is truly a defect or if it may be approved in accordance with the latest code requirements. The process is done by using either x-rays or gamma rays, thereby considered as non-destructive testing.

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.
