Utilising the capabilities of IRIS, we are able to perform the following:
■ Gamma ray Radiography (RT) of butt welds in accordance with the requirements of ASME V Article 2 and BS EN ISO 17636 Class A & B.
■ Magnetic Particle Inspection (MPI)
■ Ultrasonic Inspection (UT)
■ Dye Penetrant Inspection (DPI)
■ Positive Material Identification (PMI)
■ Hardness Testing
■ Ferrite Testing
■ Pre and Post Weld Heat Treatment
