Prospects for radiation control of main pipelines and other complex structures
E.O. Paton Electric Welding Institute of the NAS of Ukraine. 11 Kazymyr Malevych Str., 03150, Kyiv, Ukraine.
Shown in the possibility of autonomous movement of X-ray units and solid-state radioscopic transducers on magnetic platforms, which
makes nondestructive radiation testing more informative. Described are the principles of construction of new technologies for quality
control of welded joints in complex metal structures and main pipelines, which can be successfully transferred to critical tubes of
thermal and nuclear power stations. Replacement of film radiography by portable radioscopy (X-Ray-TV), using mobile CCD-detector
will widen the area of flaw detection application in industry. Examples of manufacture and application of radioscopic detectors are
given, the cost of which is by an order of magnitude lower than that of standard plane-parallel transducers. 21 Ref., 15 Fig.
