Typical concerns of pipe manufacturers with regards to radiography solutions include:
- Throughput – the x-ray system cannot act as a bottleneck in the production cycle
- Floor space – floor space on a production floor is always at a premium. Thus the x-ray system must take up as little square footage as possible
- Reliability – the x-ray machine must maintain maximum up-time as production cannot stop. Delivery schedules are aggressive to begin with, delays are not acceptable
- Technique – single-wall, double-wall, longitudinal, spiral, seam, with and without fins, etc. – pipe welds can come in many different forms and the x-ray system needs to be designed to handle it.
VJT offers customized solutions for weld inspection for pipe inspection – from boom and buggy concepts (x-ray source travels inside the pipe, detector on the outside) to double-wall straight pipe inspection; VJT has the right solution for your requirements.
