Elliptical Shots

Does anyone know a general rule of thumb as to how much of an offset you should use to radiograph a 2" joint using an elliptical exposure?

15 Deg should work.

7 : 1 ratio has worked well for me in the past. Back off 14" and offset 2" or 21" and offset 3". You get the idea. The only thing that can make it tricky is excessive weld build up of the root or crown. Take a technique and adjust accordingly.

i use the 7:1 ratio also, works fine. until you get into heavy wall

Re: Elliptical Shots
As said by Mr.Dent You can use a 7:1 technique but you have to consider the thickness of the pipe because the root will vary deponds upon the wall thick.
