|Neutron radiography, sometimes referred to as N-radiography, is the technique of producing an image of parts or materials on film using neutrons as the penetrating radiation. Production and research neutron radiography is performed in the 250kW Aerotest Radiography and Research Reactor (ARRR) at San Ramon, California.|
|Neutrons have very different penetration characteristics compared to X-rays. For many materials, neutron penetration is better than either high of low energy X-rays. Because of the unique characteristics of the two processes, however, they are complimentary, and use of one does not necessarily eliminate the need for the other.|
|N-radiography has the unique capability to image many light materials even when surrounded by a dense material. Also, N-radiography can show significant differences between two materials with similar densities or physical properties. N-radiography is particularly well suited for showing hydrogenous (hydrogen-rich) materials in metal housings.|
1. Send for our brochure.|
2. Make an appointment for a complimentary evaluation N-ray for your production part.
3. Visit our facility for a personal observation and discussion, or simply call us for more detailed information.
4. Request a presentation at your plant. We will be glad to make a group presentation with real application examples.
5. Attend our 3-day quarterly N-ray interpretation course for detailed coverage of the neutron radiography process, N-ray interpretation, application analysis and "hands-on" experience.
