Thurmont, MD Ultrasonics

Using high frequency sound energy to conduct examinations and make measurements. Ultrasonic inspection can be used for flaw detection/evaluation, dimensional measurements, material characterization. The sound energy is introduced and propagates through the material in the form of waves. When there is a discontinuity or crack in the wave path, part of the energy will be reflected. back from the flaw surface. The reflected wave signal is transformed into an electrical signal by the transducer and is displayed on a screen. Advanced Ultrasonics takes many on the job hours and classroom training to become a skilled technician in Ultrasonics. Integrity Testlabs has technicians to cover all your Ultrasonic (UT) needs.

Traditional Film, Computed Radiography and Digital radiography in Thurmont, MD

Integrity Testlabs currently utilizes traditional film and computed radiography (CR) film. Traditional film is still loaded under safe lights and developed using a 5-step process in the back our darkrooms. Once dry, the filmed in viewed under a high intensity viewer looking for defects. Traditional film comes in several different sizes and leaves the client with a physical piece of film to view for years to come. Computer Radiography or CR uses plates that are phosphor. When these plates are exposed to radiation, the plates emit a blue light that is interpreted by the film processor and then transmitted into an image and viewed on the computer screen. This process is efficient and plates can be used multiple times, no chemicals are needed to process the film. Digital radiography is newer to the industrial and keeps gaining popularity each year. Limited in film size and mobility. The biggest advantage is shorter x-ray times, less radiation, wire or wireless capabilities, and instant images that are displayed on the computer screen.
