Checks of a radiographic films viewer (negatoscope)

In EA-04/05 "Accreditation for Non-Destructive Testing" Appendix A (Radiographic equipment) is contained the requirement for "Radiographic films viewers (negatoscope) shall be periodically checked for intensity and evenness of illumination".

I have a radiographic films viewer (negatoscope)"WILNOS", but unfortunately have lost the Guidance for operation of that device. In the Guidance should be given the precedure of intensity and evenness of illumination checks.

As I have no Guidance of above mentioned checks, please tell me- which operations can be performed for radiographic films viewer (negatoscope)to check the intensity and evenness of illumination ?

Thanks for your help.

The requirements for film viewers intensity checks is detailed in ASTM E 1742, para. 6.27.4. First you must create a film to cover the entire film viewing area with an even 2.0 density. With the film in place use a digital white light meter and measure the intensity of the light that passes through the film. Figure 2 in 1742 will show you the maximum allowable film density for that viewer.

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).
