Hi Khairul

Absorption coefficient is difficult to put a single value to as it applies to monoenergetic radiation and industrial radiation sources produce a range of energies. Kodak book gives radiation equivalence steel to 18:8 stainless of 1.0 (no exposure change) for energies 150kv upwards and for Iridium, Cobalt and Caesium. I dont know about Selenium.

Khairul

Just to clarify, if you have a radiograpic exposure chart or calculator which gives a specific exposure set-up for a thickness of steel (for specific development conditions) then you should be able to apply exactly the same exposure time and conditions to the stainless steel - that is a radiation equivalence factor of 1.0

SITEX CPSERIES

Teledyne ICM’s CPSERIES has been designed with a view to revolutionizing the handling and perfor
...
mances of portable X-Ray sets. 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).
