Need NDT Statistics.

Hi everyone,
I was hoping that someone could point to a site where I could find statistics involving the NDT field and the use of real time X-Ray systems as apposed the use of film and portable systems as apposed to static ones. I know this is a tall order, but any assistance would be much appreciated.
many thanks
David Singer

I think you are correct in your statement that this is a tall order. Both systems are suited for different applications. It could not be said what was used more than another unless the specific application was specified.

Welds would be mostly inspected by traditional gamma or xray with film

I have heard in the USA realtime radiography is used 'sometimes' for the inspection of clad piping. This is very expensive hence the numerous other inspection techniques being developed to do this job.

Customs and sercurity inspections are majority realtime applications, like airport security and border checks.

Aviation related inspections use realtime applications where numerous similar components are inspected.

That in a nutshell is my breakdown of real time versus normal techniques. Maybe manufacturers of equipment can tell you what percentage of equipment is sold.

The last point is the emergence of digital radiography were imaging plates are used instead of film. Now I am not sure if this is considered real time maybe some experts in this field can comment.


Kindest Regards
