What is Neutron Radiography?

Nuclear reactors provide the intense neutron sources required to visualize objects based on their interactions with neutrons, which provides a new range of possibilities compared to traditional NDT methods. This specialized NDT method enables inspections that go beyond  X-ray imaging.

What is the process for Neutron Radiography?

The process of neutron radiography uses high yield neutron generators to capture a scan of the internal mechanisms of a sealed object. A neutron beam is directed toward an object and an image is formed. Unlike x-ray testing, neutrons can penetrate high density material.

Benefits of Neutron Radiography

There are many benefits to using neutron radiography testing, including:

  • The ability to penetrate dense materials more effectively than x-ray testing.
  • It is less damaging compared to x-rays, making it easy to test sensitive objects.
  • It allows for less preparation, making the process more efficient and streamlined.
  • The ability to uncover hidden details and flaws that would otherwise go unnoticed.
