Paper Radiography - Density Measurement

I am dealing with a problem using radiography with a paper, rather than film, imaging medium. We need to establish reasonable densities for radiograph acceptability, and cannot locate any solid information regarding density specification on paper (plenty about film, though). Ultimately, I would like to have an idea if there is any useful correlation between film (transmitted light) and paper (reflected light).
Thank you for your help.

If the paper is translucent, which is often the case, you may still be able to use the densitometer readings, either zeroing in the base paper electronically, and directly reading the darkened areas, or by subtracting the density of the paper mathematically from that of the image.

If the image is actually digital, and you just want to print out the image on paper, you may want to make a test printout on a piece of mylar and make the initial measurements there.

I looked in our archives, and have come up with more useful information than before.

When we used to use Kodak Industrex 600 paper, we were to use "Publication No. Q-16, Kodak 24-Step Refelection Density Guide," to establish our densities. BTW, the acceptable range at the time was 0.4 to 1.0, with 0.7 considered optimum.

According to the Kodak website, though reflection densitometers are available, Publication Q-16 is still available.

ISAFE3 Intrinsically Safe Sensor System

ISAFE3 intrinsically safe sensor system of Vallen Systeme is especially targeted at the petrochemica
...
l - as well as oil and gas transportation industry. The sensor system is designed for permanent monitoring or periodic inspection tasks. Sensors are available for different AE-frequency ranges optimized for corrosion and fatigue crack detection and other applications. The ISAFE 3 sensor system consists of an AE-sensor (model ISAS3) certified according to ATEX/IEC for installation in zone 0, gas group IIC, IP68, 20 to +60 °C, and a signal isolator (model SISO3) certified for installation in zone 2. An ISAS3 sensor can be mounted in atmosphere or submerged, e.g. in water or crude oil. It is supported by mounting tools for temporary (magnets) or permanent (welded) installation. ISAFE3 supports automatic sensor coupling test and can be used with any AE signal processor supporting 28V supply at 90 mA peak, e.g. Vallen Systeme ASIP-2/A.

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).
