The methods being used are RT ( x-ray & Gamma rays ),UT,PT,MT.Could any one of you help me by replying to my following points:
1. Which x-ray machine is more suitable for such activities.Please give the manufacturer name and address.
2. Which Gamma ray source is more suitable for us. The metal thickness being Max.60mm. Could you please give the address of supplier.
3. Is there any mandatory requirement(like certification from USNRC,CFR etc.) to be fulfilled by the employer to establish x-ray & Gamma ray NDT method. If yes , kindly give some details.
4. Which model of Ultrasonic flaw detector is suitable to us. Kindly specify the Manufacturer.

Thanks and Best regards.

Re: NDT Equipment Selection
Sir,

I am curious, how does a company that appears to know nothing about radiography (or NDT in general) manage to land a contract to perform such?

I urge you to visit www.brighttechnical.com to review our services. We provide consulting services to companies such as yours and will be happy to provide answers to your questions for a fee.
