depends if you are buying from a supplier or you are buying from a NDT company using them on your job.

From supplier maybe around 30 gbp (you can usually only buy 100 minimum)

From NDT company double that haha

Guess this is top end prices?

I am assumming this is an exposed film i.e. a complete examination. If so so there are many variables that affect the price such as size of tank, how far they mobilise, speed of construction. Mobilizing a crew to a remote site and having them available for say 50 days to conduct 40 shots is going to be more expensive that a one shift visit to do say 8 shots. In one cas eth price might be $90 a shot and in another it can work out at $700 a shot depending upon how the project is structured. To reduce cost you need to agglomearte work and not have people sitting around idle.
