About Radiographic Testing
Mechanized radiographic testing (RT) is an advanced method for detecting material defects utilizing gamma rays. Radiographic testing is a volume testing method, similar to ultrasonic testing, where many types of manufactured components can be examined to verify the internal structure and integrity of the specimen. DEKRA performs radiographic testing of materials using rover robots to detect defects in welds and the parent material of potentially dangerous equipment, constructions and pipelines.
Samples of defects that can be detected include cracks, slag, pores and porosity, inclusions and lack of fusions. Our experts provide highly accurate defect coordinates, length and orientation height (depth). DEKRA has a variety of Isotope sources and x-ray machines available, including:
- Se75 Isotope for steel 5 to 20mm
DEKRA’s radiographic testing specialists are certified according to ISO 9712 and we meet the following testing standards: GOST 7512-82, ISO 17636-1:2013, LISO 17636-2:2013, PNAE G-7-017-89.
