Our Metal X-Ray Strategy
X-ray — a type of radiography — is a preferred NDT method due to its ability to clearly view through steel, nickel, aluminum, and other metals. X-ray can only be performed when access to both sides of the test material is available. NDT technicians transmit radiation through the object on one side, while a detector film records the differences in absorption on the other side. We then interpret the resulting X-ray images for signs of hidden flaws or defects within the metal such as cracks, voids, and corrosion in accordance with the relevant codes and standards. Periodic, thorough evaluations are essential for preventing minor flaws from growing into more serious problems. After testing, we provide clients with a detailed test report that highlights our findings.
With X-ray, our technicians can test metallic materials leaving them unaltered and without any residual radiation. We make sure to follow all guidelines for radiation safety, including designating a restricted clearance area once testing is in progress.
