Radiography

A Leader in Radiography

Baker Testing provides both field and lab-based radiography, a non-destructive testing (NDT) method producing high sensitivity x-ray images and gamma-ray images for a variety of applications from welds, castings, electronics, and piping components to inspection of art works and forensic research.

With over 35 years experience, we offer both conventional radiography (RT) producing images on film, and Computed Radiography (CR) providing digital images that allow for advanced evaluation by adjustment of contrast, brightness, and magnification.

Flexible Lab Capacity and Mobile Imaging

  • Large volume testing and rapid turnaround with 6 laboratory x-ray vaults
  • Seven mobile field labs for on-site digital image processing or film development
  • 320 KV X-Ray available in the field or lab, capable of penetrating 2" of steel
  • IR192 Gamma-Ray, capable of penetrating 3" of steel and 8" of concrete
  • Cobalt 60 Gamma-Ray, capable of penetrating 8" of steel and up to 30" of concrete
  • State of the art Fuji equipment, the leader in digital x-ray systems

Film and Digital X-Ray

With decades of experience in radiography, Baker Testing is a leader in both film and digital radiography. Film based techniques still apply for many applications. Computed Radiography, producing digital x-rays, has many benefits:

  1. Ability to capture a wide range of thickness with a single shot
  2. Faster image processing – 10 times quicker for rapid image review
  3. Lower exposure for digital images plates – reduced exclusion zones
  4. Environmentally friendly – no chemicals or hazardous waste
  5. Easier to store and retrieve images on a computer, CD, DVD, and email
  6. More image detail with the ability to adjust brightness and contrast
  7. Measurements and notations can be added directly to x-ray images
  8. Image zoom capabilities allows magnified inspection ability

The experienced staff at Baker Testing Services can help you to determine the best radiography testing method for your application.

Radiography Applications

Both conventional and digital radiography are commonly used to detect flaws such as cracks, inclusions, gas pockets, fusion or penetration conditions and other discontinuities in welds, castings and other metal-based components.

Applications for NDT radiography are very wide for other materials, products and investigative process.
