Radiographic Testing Level 2

Radiographic Testing Equipment, NDT Training and Certification Courses RT Level 2

Radiographic Testing (RT), or industrial radiography, is a nondestructive testing (NDT) method of inspecting materials for hidden flaws by using the ability of short wavelength electromagnetic radiation (high energy photons) to penetrate various materials.
Either an X-ray machine or a radioactive source, like Ir-192, Co-60, or in rarer cases Cs-137 are used in a X-ray computed tomographymachine as a source of photons. Neutron radiographic testing (NR) is a variant of radiographic testing which uses neutrons instead of photons to penetrate materials. This can see very different things from X-rays, because neutrons can pass with ease through lead and steel but are stopped by plastics, water and oils.
Since the amount of radiation emerging from the opposite side of the material can be detected and measured, variations in this amount (or intensity) of radiation are used to determine thickness or composition of material. Penetrating radiation are those restricted to that part of the electromagnetic spectrum of wavelength less than about 10 nanometers.
We can provide Radiographic Testing (UT) training courses and examinations suitable for the following certification schemes at Level 1 & 2.
SNT-TC-1A, CP 189 in accordance with your company written practice
If a candidate wishes to go direct to Level 2 without first taking the Level 1 route, the minimum requirements are the total accumulative requirements of both Level 1 and 2.
We can also provide Preparation training for ASNT Level 3
NDT Academy can tailor make the syllabus to satisfy the requirements of an individual’s company specific written practice if requested.
