NDT Rooms / Non-Destructive Testing
Industrial X-Ray Rooms utilize higher energy ionizing x-ray for the Non-Destructive Testing of materials or products to evaluate quality assurance, control and risk factors such as imaging metal parts or components for voids, stress cracks and other defects. Energy levels can be 300kVp and higher depending upon materials and products to be inspected or tested.
Rooms are typically very large which require large access doors dependent upon equipment and the materials being tested. Shielding must be calculated by a physicist or radiation expert retained by the facility. Shielding is based on the specific imaging equipment utilized and can involve heavier lead thicknesses depending upon primary beam and secondary scatter radiation fields, workloads, surrounding occupancy factors and other unique considerations. Additional structural support or seismic considerations may apply depending upon lead weight load requirements which will need to be reviewed by the structural engineer retained by the facility for the project.
