In Reply to Raul at 23:57 Sep-23-2019 (Opening).

Dear Raul,

SNT TC 1A is certification scheme (Guideline) from ASNT which allows employers to certify their technicians based on there Written Practice for Level I & II. This is generally called Employer certification and is valid until you are engaged with that company.

ASNT NDT Level III is a person who has met the minimum criteria for Level III and passed examination of Basic and particular technique directly with ASNT. The # you mentioned is issued by ASNT and verifiable at ASNT web site.

Yes! you can have that number. Enroll for ACCP Level II or III or ASNT NDT Level III, write your Basic examination and one method examination, in case of Pass, you will obtaing this number.

Hope, this clarify.

Varex Imaging Large Field of View (FOV) Digital Detector Arrays (DDAs)

A larger FOV DDA can reduce the space and volume of the X-ray inspection system on the factory floor
, enable faster scanning times, better throughput and better resolution images at a lower dose. Customers can also save time and money. With these benefits in mind, Varex Imaging has designed a family of large FOV detectors (4343HE, XRD 1611, 4343DX-I, 4343CT) for our industrial imaging customers.


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).
