Varex offers solutions for nondestructive testing (NDT) ranging from industrial X-ray tubes to linear accelerators, and industrial flat panel detectors to imaging software.

Nondestructive testing, also referred to as nondestructive imaging (NDI), is an imaging analysis that covers a wide range of applications to evaluate material’s properties without destroying the material itself. Some applications that call for NDT include:

  • Casting inspection
  • Weld and pipeline imaging
  • Electronics inspection

Our broad range of glass and ceramic X-ray tubes provide a wide range of target angles, focal spots, and power capabilities for nondestructive testing applications. For inspection operations requiring different parameters and high resolution imaging, Varex offers dual and single focus tubes with small focal spots, as well as X-ray tubes with beryllium (Be) for low inherent filtration. This technology aids professionals in analyzing the integrity of pipelines and other industrial structures without damaging the materials or systems in question.

Varex industrial flat panel detectors are also designed to meet a broad spectrum of non-destructive testing applications. With various size offerings, our detectors help prevent geometric distortion and minimize effects of magnetic field and radiation. Our detector technology allows our customers to take advantage of superior digital image quality, high throughput, and CT capabilities. These detectors present a uniform, undistorted, high-resolution image throughout the field of view, enabling technicians to take higher quality images. Because our flat panel detectors capture digital images and eliminate the need for film, more images can be captured in a faster period of time.

If your nondestructive testing need requires you to image larger structures that require higher energy, our linear accelerators are a great solution to help you image objects as large as rockets and other aerospace products.
