Applied Technical Services performs industrial radiography (or X-ray) services for clients in nearly every industry. Our computed, digital, and conventional X-ray capabilities can uncover internal defects within components to determine if they meet the requirements of relevant codes and standards.
To clearly analyze an object’s internal structure, NDT technicians use the radiographic method (also referred to as X-ray). X-ray transmits radiation through one side of the object, while a detector placed on the other side develops a resulting film or digital image. Because of this setup, X-ray requires access to both sides of the material (i.e. OD only for pipe welds, inside and outside of tanks and pressure vessels). Our trained experts then interpret the image and provide clients with a detailed inspection report.
Radiography is a proven NDT method due to its ability to promptly reveal interior cracks, voids, and corrosion. Discovering defects within components and structures early on is important – even minor flaws can propagate into larger problems over time. Our NDT experts work to help ensure the safety, reliability, and profitability of products for clients.
When executed properly, radiography is not only an effective testing method but a safe one. ATS technicians make it a priority to follow all applicable radiation safety measures, including the designation of a restricted clearance area during the testing process. There is no residual radiation from our testing.
