Computed Radiography

Dear All,

Has anyone used any form of Portable Computed Radiography? More specifically for use as NDT weld inspection in the oil and gas industry. Any advice / criticism / advantages / disadvantages of this type of equipment would be much appreciated. I am particularly interested in the General Electric Industrial Inspection Technologies CR 50P.

Thanks for your time.

Re: Computed Radiography
Hi,
We have had Flat panel technology in use couple years. How ever, we use direct radiography but not CR- plates. There was some items need solved before we got IQI sensitivity within EN requirements, but nowadays it's working wery well.
We have been tested CR- plates also, but systems are allmost as film radiography. Means we need several plates and the plates need reading process after the exposing. Only cemical problems are exclused. The CR- plates need 5- 10 times less radiation dose than films, so exposing times are shorter.
Will be back to the scope

oved signal to noise ratio, characterize, size and analyze defects better with access to several wave mode views and save raw FMC data for higher quality analysis.  Some of the benefits are:
  • Beautiful Image! Easier to understand what you're looking at
  • Completely focused in entire image or volume
  • Much easier to define setups before inspection
  • Easier to decipher geometry echoes from real defects
  • Oriented defects (e.g. cracks) are imaged better
  • See image from different wave modes from one FMC inspection
  • FMC data can be reprocessed/analyzed without going back to the field
