Hi,
Backgouge means 'removal weld metal and parent metal from welded portion at root side to avoid LOP and LOF for subsequent welding. This will be done with grinding and arc cutting.
It will help you i hope.

Re: backgouge
When a thick plate is welded , usually a double vee joint is welded. After welding from one side the second is back gouged and the welding performed inorder to get sound weld.

Despite having managed to halve the weight of similar portable X-Ray generators available on the market (while continuing to provide the same power output), the SITEX CPSERIES generators feature a shutter, a laser pointer, a beryllium window, an aluminum filter and two integrated diaphragms (customized sizes are available upon request). Without compromising the robustness and reliability for which ICM products are renowned, the small size and light weight of the SITEX CPSERIES will radically change the way that you perform your RT inspections. And you will see a positive impact in terms of both quality and return on investment (ROI).
