Radiographic Inspection

SSS's radiographic inspection procedure requirements maintain producing images on film through the use of x-rays or gamma rays with the intent to meet and/or exceed standards. All radiographic inspections are performed by qualified SSS certified personnel in accordance with the SSS Quality Assurance Program. Our goal is to achieve the most accurate and reliable data in a cost-effective and timely manner.

Radiographic Examination for Piping Wall Thickness

Through the use of radiographic inspection, continuous thickness scans can be performed on the shell of carbon steel tanks and vessels, as well as piping systems. This inspection data is presented in a graphical format that can include measurement of wall thickness calculations of insulated or uninsulated piping, as well as detecting internal or external erosion/corrosion, product build-up or blockage. 

Concrete Radiography (X-ray)

Obstructions can be located with 100% accuracy with reliable radiographs. X-rays give us the ability to identify rebar, conduit, and post-tension cables in concrete structures up to 24" thick. Our services are guaranteed to give you the results you need.
