NDT Applications

Pipeline Inspection

Pipeline Inspection

Standardised pipeline inspections are one of the most common Portable X-Ray systems uses in the NDT field. Portable X-Ray systems enable inspections during different stages of the pipeline’s life cycle. For instance, inspectors can perform tests after production, after installation and during usage. Weld quality and corrosion are the most common subjects of pipeline inspections.

With the PXR Alpha series inspections will yield safe and reliable results and a secure experience for its users.

Shipbuilding inspection


One of the most common application for portable X-Ray systems in NDT is for shipbuilding inspections. Portable X-Ray systems are essential in assuring safe seafaring. This is due to the construction methods, materials used in construction. In addition, there are high risks if defects are not located in time. In other words, inspecting welds and other structural constructions is crucial to ensure their quality and detect any possible corrosion.

To guarantee safe travels for any vessel we supply the PXR Alpha series with all the necessary tools to inspect all parts of the ship.

Non-Destructive Testing

Aerospace Industry

When considering the aerospace industry, safety is equally or even more important than within the shipbuilding industry since any flaws in construction can cause quick and disastrous outcomes. Therefore, it is evident that any aircraft is inspected for even minor imperfections.

The PXR Alpha series offers mobile, reliable and detailed imaging equipment. This is to make sure that detection of any of these defects happens in time. Above all, we at Pexraytech design portable X-Ray systems to keep both inspectors and the end users of inspected objects safe.
