Radiographic testing is a widely used technique for volumetric non-destructive testing. Penetrating radiation using X-rays or gamma rays is passed through a solid object to produce an image of the objects internal structure on to a film to identify most defects. Radiographic testing can be applied on parts which have been welded, cast, or forged and applied across a range of sectors.
Radiographic inspections are carried out in accordance with approved techniques and procedures and assessed against applicable specifications. Our technicians are highly trained radiation protection supervisors (RPS) and work under strict legislative requirements under controlled conditions in accordance with ironising radiation regulations (IRR), Health and Safety Executive and Environment Agency.
At AWL Inspection we have a wide range of radiography equipment to inspect parts of varying size and shape including:

200-300kv Radiography Sets
We can carry out radiography inspection in-house and on site. *
*Please note, the HSE specify that any transportable items must be brought to our premises for radiography inspection.
