Radioactive Weld Inspection Isotope: Iridium 192
Iridium 192 is used in weld radiography non-destructive testing. This material is a radioactive isotope that must be used with great caution. As a welding inspection company in Houston TX, we have access to Iridium 192 and required machinery to capture internal defects on welding pipes.
Our team at D-Arrow Inspections is trained and experienced to perform quality radiography testing services using Iridium 192.
Not only are we trained, but we carry the required licensed to performing radiography testing services. You can be sure our team of certified weld inspectors will capture accurate and safe images. These images can be used to detect abnormalities and stored for future audit purposes. Industrial radiography is great for pressurized piping, pressured vessels, pipelines and more!
Our CWIs can consult with you to determine the best non-destructive test for your situation.
Benefits of Using Iridium 192 In NDT
When a visual test cannot be performed, using Iridium 192 in a radiography test can render effective internal images for the purpose of identifying welding flaws.
As with all non-destructive testing, the benefits of not damaging the material while being able to perform internal weld inspections saves costs while improving quality.
Iridium 192 is used to identify welding issues in metal joints and castings as well as storage containers structural welds but must be able to have access to both sides of the material. Working with D-Arrow Inspections to perform your NDTs has benefits that include establishing and monitoring quality controls using effect testing methods.
