Radiographic Testing

X-rays used to test for flaws in materials

Radiographic Testing:

Highly penetrating radiation is used to detect internal discontinuities in a wide range of materials. As a nondestructive examination technique, x-rays or gamma rays are used to examine the internal structure to ensure all project specifications are met. Radiographic testing works by exposing the subject of the test to specific types of radiation. The radiation or x-rays will pass through the object, and then the detection equipment will record the results. Dark areas indicate more radiation has passed through, this commonly indicates a void, defect, or other flaws in the test subject. Since the rays used do not damage the object, it is safe to use after testing. Due to its ability to detect flaws in internal structure Radiographic testing is a very common non-destructive test.
