  • Advanced Ultrasonic Testing Equipment and Software Support Innovative NDT Solutions

    Ultrasonic testing is one of the most common and useful modern methods of nondestructive testing. By collecting and interpreting the reflection or diffraction of ultrasonic waves transduced into solid objects, ultrasonic testing equipment can detect flaws or defects which can cause structures to fail. It gives technicians the ability to look inside solid objects to find cracks or holes invisible ...

  • The basics of polarization (animated) | Spectroscopy Guides

    In many spectroscopic and photonics applications, it is desirable to work with light that has been polarized in a particular direction. In this article we explore what polarization is, and how it may be obtained from an unpolarized light source. Electro-magnetic radiation (light) What we generally refer to as “light” is more correctly known as 'electromagnetic ...

  • Determine on-site the radon concentration in water: sampling & on-line methods

    Radon can dissolve and build up in water from underground sources. If water comes from a well, it may contain Radon. Radon in the water dissolves and escapes into the air during household water use, especially when it is heated. An easy-to-handle experimental setup for the on-site determination of the Radon concentration in water samples has been developed and tested. In contrast to ...

  • How to treat radioactive NORM sludge with VacuDry

    NORM doesn’t sound like a big thing. But Naturally Occurring Radioactive Material might let the alarm bells ring. Everyone has heard of “radioactive material” and that sounds dangerous. However, most of this material is trapped deep in the ground beneath our feet. From there it reaches the surface, for example via the water cycle. Another possible pathway for NORM to reach the ...
