Why Radiography Enclosure?

Radiography Enclosures helps to carryout inspections in the safest conditions. Onsite testing has associated safety hazards. This includes evacuation of work men from the site. This hampers production schedules. In addition, transportation of radiation source to the site requires prior approval from AERB, Mumbai. For that reason, where it is practicable to transport the component, RT testing is performed in X-ray enclosures.

This also helps to maintain safety during radiography. Enclosures are typically located at industrial areas are safer places for radiographic inspection compared to open field testing. 

Enclosures are operational 24X7 to serve customers on time. X-ray enclosure is approved by Atomic Energy Regulatory Board (AERB) Mumbai and operational since 2018. Facility is specifically designed by BARC experts on Industrial Radiography.

That is why we prefer our customers to send the materials to our enclosure for quickly performing the Radiography.

How to choose between X-ray and Gamma Ray?

Though both x-rays and Gamma Rays are part of electromagnetic wave spectrum, there are few differences. Choosing x-ray and gamma radiography is based on quality level desired and cost of testing.

Unlike Gamma Rays, x-rays generated in a cathode ray tube. When highly accelerated electrons are striking the target in vacuum, x-rays are emitted. These rays are having different energies based on target material and energy of tube. Consequently, there are a number of rays having a spectrum of energy emitted from the x-ray tube. 

Whereas, Gamma Rays are generated by a radioactive isotope such as Iridium 192 or Cobalt 60. Each isotope emits a specific one or more energy rays. Thus, radiographer has little or no option to control the energy of gamma rays.

Gamma ray testing do not require electricity to produce. Thus, can be performed onsite at remote locations. Whereas, x-ray essentially requires electricity to produce. Generating tubes are fragile and requires utmost care while transporting to sites. Another problem is voltage fluctuations onsite that may alter or damage x-ray tube onsite. 

X-ray are filtered to eliminate unwanted low energy waves. Filtering of rays is needed to improve the quality passing through the material. Therefore, these rays are selectively filtered to get the optimum quality.  For this reason, images generated by x-ray radiography are far superior in terms of sensitivity and contrast. However, the cost of radiography is higher when compared to gamma radiography.

In conclusion, If you need quality images, it better to go for x-ray radiography provided the cost is within the budget.

Dark Room for film Processing

Digital imaging is picking up at a faster pace, still film radiography is dominant in industrial applications. After exposure the films shall be processed in a dark room under controlled conditions. 

Film processing converts invisible (latent) image to visible image that is suitable for interpretation. To get consistency in results Dark room processing of X ray film is vital. If not adequately controlled, improper film processing causes Film artefacts. Therefore, our skilled RT technicians process films with extreme care.

Selection of X ray film quality depends on customer needs. In general we use D4 and D7 type films. However, based on need, we can also use any other quality x ray films as per agreement.

Selection of x-ray films

Various types of x-ray films are available that vary in signal to noise ratio, speed of response to radiation and graininess. It is appropriate to classify films in relation to signal to noise ration.

Fine grained films have high signal to noise ratio. Consequently these films require comparatively large radiation qualitities for exposure. This gives excellent quality resolution detail. In the choice of film, a trade off is made between resolution and speed of exposure. Criticality of component determines the level of trade-off.

In Industrial Radiography of castings and welds Agfa D7 films are used. For critical pressure vessel and boiler welds, Agfa D4 film are used.

Onsite Gamma and X ray testing Facility

Castings and Welds are tested for flaws using x-ray radiography. For example, steel and aluminium castings are tested to find internal flaws. Our team for onsite radiography testing is ready with all the equipment. Even, we do inspection at our in-house RT enclosure. Now, we can provide Composite X ray testing for aerospace as well. Now a days, RT testing of assembled components is done to find interior missing parts.

Onsite radiography avoids movement of materials to our labs. However, prior approval of site for radiation safety ensure untoward incidents on site. Radiographer and RSO will survey the site and evacuate prior to start of onsite x ray testing. We advice clients to take proper approval from plant safety before commencement of testing.


ASTM E446 Reference Radiographs for Interpretation

With decades of experience, our Radiographers can do RT inspection of heavy castings and welds. For X ray film interpretation of castings we have ASTM E446 reference Radiographs. Similarly, Welding Radiography reference standards are available for weld x-ray interpretation. In other words, we bring you trusted results so that you will know the quality of castings and weld joints.

In general, x ray radiography is suitable for lighter thickness sections and low density metals such as Aluminium, Magnesium and composites. In contrast, heavy sections and high density metals, gamma rays will do better. IQI or penetrameter of various materials are in place to ensure quality of each film. RT techniques includes SWSI, Panoramic for circumferential welds and castings, DWSI, DWDI Elliptical technique for pipes and tube welds of smaller diameter.


ASNT Level III consulting Service in Radiography

The test results are reliable under able guidance of ASNT Level III experts. Our in-house ASNT NDT Level 3 approves the procedures and RT testing techniques before starting radiography. He can also support the customers on preparing procedures and act as company level III.

Charges for RT Testing

Major factors affecting Radiography X ray testing charges are material, job thickness apart from various other factors. Cost also depends on quality of x-ray film, sensitivity and other factors. For example, D4 for high quality and D7 for normal quality. 2-2T is the generally acceptable sensitivity. However, quality needs for aerospace may vary. Also, X ray radiography test charges are based on x-ray film consumption and location of testing. In general for a weld test coupon of 300mm length, 10mm thickness radiography charges starts from Rs.750+gst.
