100% Radiography 2.5mm thick, 1650mm dia stainless steel tank according to the requirements of EN 13530-2. In this set-up the radiographer exposes and captures 100% of the welded seam using the panoramic technique. This method allows for the inspection of large weld areas in a fraction of the time taken to individually expose each section. The three seams exposed above represent approx. 15.5mtrs of weld.

Congratulations to Lee who has successfully passed his Level 2 in Ultrasonic Immersion testing! Lee joined Pudsey Test back in 2013 and has been working alongside our Level 2 and Level 3 inspectors gaining valuable on the job experience whilst working towards his level 2. The immersion testing of bar and tube is highly specialised and not for the faint hearted – so well done Lee.

Lee is pictured here after inspecting a 396mm outside diameter tube using our large immersion tank.

This plate posed a particular challenge due to the material thickness and structure but Eli stepped up (on his hands and knees!).
