Information : Industrial Radiography
CSTA has developed several capabilities to perform radiographic inspection of a variety of items of many different sizes. X-ray units span a range of 20 KeV to 11 MeV to inspect items from combat boots and helmets to tank hulls. Inspections can be performed on materials from thin ceramics and composites to 24-inch thick steel. Real time inspections can be performed, or film can be used for greater sensitivity. All x-ray units below 4 MeV are portable for field use. Items up to 20 tons can be manipulated in the x-ray rooms with cranes. Large doors allow items on trailers or large vehicles to be inspected. These capabilities have been used by the Army, Navy, NASA, foreign governments, and Baltimore Gas and Electric Company.
