Close Proximity Radiography

The greatest advantage of Close Proximity Radiography over conventional Radiography is that it reduces required safe distance to as low as 4 meters whereas in conventional radiography it is normal practice to evacuate unclassified personnel upto 30 meters or even more. This implies that radiographic testing (RT)can be done 24x7 even when production is going on in full swing. Non-classified personnel can continue working as no down time is required, no disruption to sensitive areas (control rooms, offices, etc.)

Both Selenium75 (upto 80 Ci),  Ir192 (upto 15 Ci) source can be used and radiation after passing through the job and film is attenuated using a specially designed high density specially plastic wrapped around the source and film thereby reducing the safe distance to as low as 4 metres.
