Radioactive Weld Inspection Isotope: Cobalt 60
Cobalt 60 is a radioactive isotope used in radiography testing, which is an accurate non-destructive testing method used by D-Arrow Inspections and other welding inspection companies in Houston and around the world.
As a powerful source of gamma radiation used to view the internal structure of pipelines, large storage containers, and structural welding of many types where discontinuities or flaws can cause serious issues, Cobalt 60 is a trusted material used in industrial radiography testing.
CWI (certified welding inspectors) must be licensed to conduct radiography testing using radioactive materials such as Cobalt 60. The CWI employees of D-Arrow Inspections are licensed professionals that undergo a proper education in safe handling methods that are required as part of the necessary federal standards to use industrial radioactive materials.
Benefits of Using Cobalt 60 In NDT
The purpose of our non-destructive testing is to get you back to production as fast as possible. Things like rework due to poor quality welding, can cause bottle necks and ultimately slow down production time.
Being able to detect irregularities or issues before it is too late is important and Cobalt 60 helps our team at D-Arrow Inspection do just that.
Here are some benefits of using Cobalt 60 in our radiography testing services:
• Up to 9-inch carbon steel thickness limit
• Safely detect internal flaws
• Image available for future audits
At D-Arrow Inspections, we work hard to make sure your welds meet quality standards. Contact us today to schedule our radiography NDT services.
