NDT history in Iran?

Dear friends,
I am a mechanical Engineering student. I am researching
about the " History of NDT in Iran ". Considering that
before revolution in Iran - 1979 - just foreign companies
had been involved in this field and actually they have left
Iran after revolution. Therefore NDT History is just traceable
from 1980 in Iran.
I really appreciate if any Co. or Inspector can help me
through any information that they have from the years before
1979.
With regards,Farshad Mobasher-Fard

Re: NDT history in Iran?
Farshad,

This may not help you much but I can tell you that in 1979 I was an NDT instructor for the USAF at Chanute AFB in Illinois and we had a number of students from Iran. Perhaps, you can somehow find one of them. Perhaps many of the native NDT technicians got their training through the military.

Good Luck.

I worked in Iran as a Welding Inspector in 1976-1977, for a company called Taqcco. They were an Iranian consulting company operating out of Terhan and I believe they had their own NDT personnel.
The job I was on was building Desalting plants in Ahwaz, it was a joint venture with Foster Wheeler.
The majority of NDT performed was Radiography using an Isotope as the radiation source. I do remember the equipment was quite primative and had the potential to give the operator large doses of radiation.


    
 
 

Product Spotlight

Exertus Dual 120

The Exertus Dual 120 Projector has the ability to accept Iridium 192 sources or Selenium 75 source
...
s. This projector incorporates design and safety features that make it flexible, compact and lightweight. The Projector is lighter than most of its competitors. It incorporates an improved source channel, based on a new helicoidal design, which makes maintenance easier. The helicoidal design also allows smoother movement of the source assembly inside the device, making it easier for the operator and improving safety. The Projector also has a unique safety feature not found in competitive products. The source assembly locking mechanism is triggered by the source holder capsule at the front of the source assembly, thereby always assuring the operator that the source has returned to the safe position. The Exertus Dual 120 is ISO3999:2004 compliant.
