If you multiply your Ir192 exposures by 4 you will achieve acceptable images.

Selinium75 has a constant of 2.2 R per curie compared to Iridium 192's 5.2 R.

Multiply your exposures by a factor of 2.4 x

Re: expose chart for selinium75
Hi
Rules of thumb given by Scot and Collin (i.e. multiply the exposure time calculated for Ir-192 by a factor 4 or by a factor 2.4) are both equally wrong or… good !

The ratio of exposure constants (dosage rates) for Ir-192 and Se-75 is only a part of the story. These two radionuclides have different energy spectra. For Se-75 main emission lines are between 136 and 280 keV whereas for Ir-192 they are between 296 and 468 keV. As a result Selenium radiation is much ‘softer’ and its linear attenuation coefficient is higher than for Iridium. Their HVL values in steel are respectively 6.2 and 9.2 mm.

It means that exposure chart for Se-75 and Ir-192 have different slopes. As a result there is no single factor connecting exposure times for Ir-192 and Se-75. For example factor 2.4, mentioned by Scott, is good for steel thickness, say 10-15mm, whereas factor 4 mentioned by Collin may be good for thicker plates, say 25-30 mm.

The Rajan request for Se-75 exposure chart can not be simply answered as the exposures required for particular testing conditions are determined by many changing factors, as type/brand of film, thickness of Pb screens, type of processing, mode of processing, type/brand of used chemicals etc. So there are no one universal chart, sliding ruler or computer program good for all RT laboratories.

The solution is purchasing a professional software for exposure calculations (necessary with tuning up/auto-correction function) or preparation the exposure chart reflecting all working conditions of own laboratory.

nresolved asset integrity problem in the industry. Current methods for measuring wall thickness with liftoff, without removing insulation, all have severe limitations. Eddyfi introduces Lyft — a reinvented, high-performance pulsed eddy current (PEC) solution. The patent- pending system features a state-of-the-art portable instrument, real- time C-scan imaging, fast data acquisition with grid-mapping and dynamic scanning modes, and flexibility with long cables. It can also scan through thick metal and insulation, as well as aluminum, stainless steel, and galvanized steel weather jackets. Who else but Eddyfi to reinvent an eddy current technique and redefine CUI programs. Got Lyft?
