Non-Destructive Testing (NDT)
X-rays for use in Non-Destructive Testing (NDT) applications for a wide variety of industries including the Electronics industry, Petrochemical industry and general manufacturing.
Non-Destructive Testing (NDT) is the process of examining an object without impairing its future usefulness. X-ray is one of the primary technologies used in the NDT process. NDT entities include Petro Chemical, manufacturing and construction companies, Universities, and the Military. NDT Settings range from a comfortable lab to extreme environmental conditions. Some NDT applications require multiple X-ray images per hour and other applications require a few X-ray images per month. The table below summarizes the attributes that are of primary importance in the NDT market.
||Golden X-ray Benefits
||Minimal disruption to normal on-going operations
||Exclusion zone allow for reduced interruptions in normal operations. The X-ray generator’s single package design and no warm up required saves time during set up.
||Applications often require X-ray be transported and used in remote locations with no access to power
||Battery powered and light weight, the X-ray generators can be easily transported and operated in remote settings.
||May require inspections within a relatively close proximity to personnel
||Golden Engineering Pulsed X-ray generators contain no radioactive material. Minimal leakage to side and rear of the machine and minimal exposure time reduces standoff distance around the machine and reduces the possibility of accidental exposure.
||Products often exposed to harsh environmental conditions
Some applications require continual use
||Rugged design can be used in a variety of environmental conditions and temperatures between -10 to 120 degrees F.
Light duty technology is not intended for continual use. Applications that require continual use will require multiple generators and some applications are not viable for light duty X-ray generators.
||Wide variety of image quality required
||A 3 mm source size means X-ray may not be suited for some high resolution applications.
