|Company Increases Radiography Fleet to 12 Units, Offers Convenient, Cost-Effective & Fast Inspections
Aliquippa, Penn. and Caledonia, Mich., June 10, 2013 – TÜV Rheinland Industrial Solutions (TRIS), a full-service inspection, testing and certification company, has expanded its mobile radiography capabilities, bringing its fleet of inspection trucks to 12. The mobile trucks are versatile, can go out to remote terrains and offer convenient on-site inspections of welded material and castings, including piping systems, tanks, pressure vessels and steel bridge components.
TRIS increased its capabilities as radiography tests are in high demand by companies seeking to ensure the structural integrity and safety of equipment and infrastructure. Mobile units provide an entire range of services right at the job site, saving the customer transit costs and offering a fast set-up and results.
The new units run off inverters and converters and AC power, without the need for generators, helping the company transition to a more eco-friendly fleet. Additionally, they are completely insulated and leak-proof, and highly chemical- and weather-resistant, and a new system dries the film in under 20 minutes, speeding up handling and reporting.
TÜV Rheinland’s employees have extensive training and experience in radiation inspection. All radiographers are certified in accordance with The American Society for Non-destructive Testing (ASNT) or EN (European Norms) standards and provide films and readings quickly and accurately using state-of-the-art equipment.
