RTD Rayscan and Tankscan are Applus+ solutions for real-time digital radiographic (RTR) inspection used in radiography NDT, which uses advanced technology in direct radiography (DR) techniques. Real time digital radiography involves the filmless conversion of data into a high-resolution digital image of the entire weld and can be performed within a single scan. Rayscan is a RTR inspection that can be used as either double-wall single image (DWSI) or single-wall single image (SWSI) and can inspect pipes with a diameter range from 5cm to 142cm (2" to 56"), as well as horizontal and vertical tank weld seams.
Applus+ leads the field in advanced technology for RTR inspection, with its own R&D laboratories, worldwide resources and geographical coverage. The radiography NDT technicians at Applus+ work closely with industry leaders and subject experts.
The Rayscan and Tankscan RTR inspection technologies comply with the requirements of various industry standards (ASME, API, DNV, EN-ISO). Rayscan/Tankscan can minimise downtime and increase production, while providing higher sensitivity and better overall definition to identify and evaluate indications.
The real-time digital radiography developed by Applus+ for Rayscan and Tankscan has been employed mainly in the new-construction industry, for example in:
Real time digital radiography provides significant advantages over conventional radiography, such as:
The Rayscan/Tankscan Real Time Digital Radiography developed for RTR inspections has a number of benefits over conventional film radiography:
