RNDT completes the radiography on two sets of compressor castings. Each set consisted of six different castings. The total weight of each set of castings was 18 tons. The radiography consisted of 828 individual radiograph utilizing a total of 2350 pieces of film. Three different radiation sources were utilized to give our client the most accurate radiographic technique industry can provide.
RNDT personnel refine a radiographic technique to radiograph critical casting areas and CJP weldments on a prototype exhaust manifold for a new generation AC diesel electric locomotive.
RNDT has a state of the art computed radiographic (CR) scanner that has been added to their list of services offered to their clients. We can now offer digital images to our clients in lieu of the traditional film based radiography currently offered.
