Company Expands Digital Capability for Field Radiographic Inspections To Speed Up Results, Reduce Costs

Aliquippa, Penn. – TÜV Rheinland Industrial Solutions (TRIS), a full-service inspection, testing and certification company, expands its digital radiography capability with a portable X-Ray detector using wireless and battery-operating technology. The wireless capability will allow TRIS to provide faster results at reduced costs to the company’s oil and gas, power generation, construction and other industrial clients.

Designed to operate in the harshest industrial environments, the portable X-Ray detector can be wirelessly connected or tethered to a laptop computer. TRIS technicians can quickly set it up in some of the most challenging field conditions and survey hard-to-reach areas such as pipe racks.

Digital radiography improves field safety and productivity through the advantages of reduced exposure and shooting times. It eliminates the need for film and chemical components necessary for traditional radiography, reducing costs. Instant radiographic inspections and review help TRIS clients receive results faster while digital storage makes for easy documentation and retention of inspection records.

TRIS provides both field and laboratory inspection services, including all NDT methods, QC/QA functions, proof loading, calibrations, tensile testing (including ultimate strength, yield, elongation and reduction of area), compression, shear testing and slow bend testing.

To learn more about the benefits of the new capability, call TÜV Rheinland (800) 748-0208.
