Radiographic Testing (RT)
Radiographic Testing by Certified Technicians in Grande Prairie
Radiographic testing is a very common non-destructive testing (NDT) inspection method known for its versatility in identifying a wide variety of flaws in different materials. One of the advantages of radiography testing is that it can reveal discontinuities located on or below the surface. Galey Inspection Services Ltd offers radiographic testing in Grande Prairie and surrounding areas. We examine various manufactured components to verify the internal structure and integrity of the specimen.
Our experienced radiographers work within strict safety guidelines. We use our years of expertise to assess if an irregularity is truly an irreparable defect or if it can be approved in accordance with the latest code requirements. The process is done using either x-rays or gamma rays, thereby considered non-destructive testing.

How It Works
As a non-destructive testing technique, radiographic testing (RT) analyzes the structural integrity of a material by directing radiation through its surface. This type of testing works in the following ways:
Radiographic testing begins with thorough safety checks on equipment. Once complete, we clear the area of any non-nuclear energy workers.
We place a radioactive device on one side of the material and a radiographic film on the other.
We use radiation to penetrate the part. This penetration leaves a shadowgraph on the film showing the material's structural integrity in 2D.
Our radiographic testing technicians interpret the results and inform the client of any potential defects.
We deliver a full report based on our non-destructive testing findings.
Uses of Non-destructive Testing
Radiographic testing, due to its non-destructive nature, has the potential to benefit industries like oil and gas, construction and nuclear. It’s commonly used to inspect facilities, pipelines, gas plants, bridges, custom fabrications and industrial facilities.
