Radiographic Testing

Radiographic testing can be used to evaluate welded joints, areas of material loss, and internal defects using a nuclear source to penetrate materials. Defects are evaluated on film in a dark room and provide a visual representation of the found defects. Caution must be taken to ensure proper time, distance, and shielding are accounted for by surrounding workers and operating technicians.

Certification Requirements:

  • CGSB RT Level 1, 2, and 3.
  • CEDO

Radiographic Testing Results:

  • Effective, repeatable, quality control tool.
  • Hard copy documentation of defects.
  • Compliance with CWB 178.1
