Industrial Radiography or Radiographic Testing (RT) uses ionizing electromagnetic radiation to view objects in a way that can't be seen otherwise. It is not to be confused with the use of ionizing radiation to change or modify objects; radiography's purpose is strictly for viewing. It is a method of inspecting materials for hidden flaws by using the capability of short wavelength electromagnetic radiation, x-rays and gamma radiation, to penetrate various materials.

Gamma radiation sources, most commonly Iridium-192 and Cobalt-60, are used to inspect a variety of materials. The vast majority of radiography concerns the testing and grading of welds on pressurized piping, pressure vessels, high-capacity storage containers, pipelines, and some structural welds. Other tested materials include concrete (locating rebar or conduit), welder's test coupons, machined parts, plate metal, or pipewall (locating anomalies due to corrosion or mechanical damage). Theoretically, industrial radiographers could radiograph any solid, flat material (walls, ceilings, floors, square or rectangular containers) or any hollow cylindrical or spherical object.



Preparation course designed for personnel responsible for judging the quality of radiograph and reaching informed decisions regarding the identity and extent of the defects revealed. Training in radiographic interpretation is  provides essential knowledge on radiographic theory and practice to enable interpreters to judge radiographic quality and concentrate on practical interpretation of welds respectively. 
Principles of X- and gamma-radiography; equipment; safety; selection of films and screens; exposure; processing; characteristics of the image; choice of technique; relevant standards; sensitivity, factors affecting the quality of radiographs.


Radiographers, inspectors, engineers and surveyors who wish to interpret radiographs but do not have a good understanding of the principles of radiography. (This course forms part of the preparation for SKM Level 2 Radiographic Interpretation examination).

About Us

Established in 2003. Mainly focused on the training activities such as Non-destructive Testing (NDT), Welding, Painting & coating and American Petroleum Institute (API) courses.

The need of skills,qualified and experienced personnel to carry out inspection and other special task is very demanding.As client work on their quality system, the requirement for training and courses is very critical
